Montero equalizer helps Sounders tie Whitecaps

The Vancouver Whitecaps looked poised to take all three points and earn some bragging rights on rival Seattle, but the Sounders were bailed out by a familiar hero who delivered yet another clutch goal.

Freddy Montero scored in the 90th minute to help give the Sounders a 2-2 tie at BC Place in Vancouver. Montero collected an Eddie Johnson pass and put on a few stutter steps to free up enough room to curl a shot past Joe Cannon.

Vancouver opened the scoring courtesy of a 12th-minute Alain Rochat goal, but saw that lead disappear just two minutes into the second half when Johnson tied things up off a Mauro Rosales feed.

The Whitecaps looked primed for victory when Camilo delivered a go-ahead goal in the 82nd minute, but Montero spoiled the home team's victory party by providing his fourth goal of the season.
