Earthquakes vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

“The game felt too easy at time and that’s when we left our guard down.” - Cristian Roldan

Historically speaking, when the Seattle Sounders take a two-goal lead, the game is as good as won. In fact, they’d carried a 123-match winning streak in such situations into Saturday’s encounter with the San Jose Earthquakes. When they took leads of 2-0 and 3-1, the game seemed to be following a similar script.

Unfortunately, fate had other ideas and the Earthquakes scored three unanswered goals to end that streak and hand the Sounders a second straight loss.
