Can this please be an emotional low point?

The Sounders need to stop dropping points at home.

For a few glorious moments, it felt like the Sounders had scored a hard-fought win over the top team in the Western Conference.

The seeming clincher came deep into stoppage time when Reed Baker-Whiting intercepted a pass, drove forward, shrugged off a defender and calmly delivered a pass to Danny Musovski, who hit a sliding shot into the net.

Musovski, who has had a few terrible misses in recent weeks, looked particularly relieved.

Baker-Whiting, who has been working himself back from a six-month injury absence, let out a roar that had to be particularly cathartic.

Except it didn’t happen. Well, at least not officially.

VAR flagged Musovski’s challenge that started the sequence for review and the referee ultimately decided to wave off hte goal.

Less than a minute after the ball was put back into play, RSL had the equalizer when the Sounders failed three separate opportunities to clear the danger.

Instead of a potential season-defining win, the Sounders were instead stuck with more frustrating dropped points.

In a season of depressing results, this feels like a low point.

Jeremiah and Aaron discuss.
