The Seattle Sounders registered a rare come-from-behind point, pulling out a 1-1 tie at FC Dallas on Saturday. It was just the second time this year the Sounders have claimed any points when they went into halftime trailing. The goal came in the 57th minute when Alex Roldan scored his first goal of the season off of Reed Baker-Whiting's first career MLS assist.

The point was enough to put the Sounders in third-place in the Western Conference, one point behind second-place LAFC.
