After a fun little weather delay, the Seattle Sounders built a 2-0 lead in what many were calling a must-win match by making and taking a couple chances. First, Albert Rusnák slotted in a peach of a free kick. Early in the second half, Raúl Ruidíaz scrambled in a second on the counter. From there, Seattle’s passivity took over and Orlando City put in three unanswered. They scored the types of goals Seattle used to score and willed themselves to a 3-2 victory.
Here’s the scale:

1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
