LA Galaxy vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

It wasn’t pretty, but it didn’t have to be.

To the degree the Seattle Sounders needed to put a pair of disappointing results behind them, they seem to have done just that with a hard-earned 2-1 win at the LA Galaxy. Goals from Yeimar Goméz Andrade and Raúl Ruidíaz paced the effort offensively, and the defense posted a ninth-straight game without allowing a goal from open play.
