Earthquakes vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

Sounders stay atop the Western Conference.

Playing their fourth straight road match, and their sixth overall in 19 days, the Seattle Sounders scored one of their most decisive wins of the season. The 3-1 scoreline was actually a bit more favorable to the San Jose Earthquakes than it probably should have been, as the one goal came off a Sounders defender. Meanwhile, Raúl Ruidíaz was dominant in the first half and the defense ably shut things down after the 60th minute or so.
