Sounders at Real Salt Lake: Highlights, stats, quotes

A second-straight 1-0 loss to start the season.

Looking ahead to a challenging midweek Concacaf Champions League game against Leon, Seattle Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer rotated his lineup heavily in the team’s second league match of the season. The Sounders never looked comfortable, which was compounded by a 2 hour, 15 minute weather delay just before halftime where the temperature plunged, the field was covered by hail, and eventually it started snowing. It was a combination of events unlikely to occur again, and perhaps the best thing to do is brush off the snow and immediately look forward to the next game.
