LA Galaxy vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

“We are messaging that this was in many ways a disappointing results, but if you look for the silver lining there were some bright spots.” - Schmetzer

The Seattle Sounders used a very rotated lineup, played pretty even through most of the match and arguably created some of the game’s best scoring chances but ultimately fell 3-1 to what was pretty much a first-choice LA Galaxy on Wednesday in the U.S. Open Cup Round of 32. The Galaxy opened the scoring with a wundergoal in the 3rd minute off the foot of Julian Aude and then added later goals from Memo Rodrigues. Paul Rothrock, on loan from the Tacoma Defiance, scored in his second straight first-team appearance.
