Sporting KC vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

Jordan Morris sets Sounders record with four goals in 4-1 win over Sporting KC.

The Seattle Sounders broke out of their road doldrums in an emphatic way, beating Sporting KC 4-1 on Saturday behind the first-ever four-goal game in club history from Jordan Morris. Léo Chú provided primary assists on three of the goals and got a secondary assist on the other to also set a franchise record.

The Sounders had come into this match riding a 10-game road winless run and had lost five straight, dating back to last year. The start was far from what they wanted, surrendering a goal just 5 minutes in. But they responded well and equalized in the 23rd minute. They stormed ahead in the 54th minute and then added two more after Ben Sweat was shown a second yellow card, leaving Sporting KC with just 10 men.
