MLS Scoreboard: Sounders keep rolling on the road, Atlanta United wins 4th straight, and more


The Seattle Sounders are the best road team in Major League Soccer, and worked their away magic one more time on Saturday, rallying late to complete a three-win week on the road.

Will Bruin’s 89th-minute finish completed a late turnaround for the Sounders, who scored two goals in the final three minutes to pull off a 2-1 victory over the struggling Columbus Crew at Stadium.

The Crew looked like they might snap their five-match losing streak when Bradley Wright-Phillips broke a goal-less deadlock in the 77th minute, but the Sounders had other plans.

First, Xavier Arreaga slotted home a dangerous cross from Jimmy Medranda in the 88th minute to tie the score, but Bruin followed-up with the winner just one minute later to make it three straight road wins for the West-leading Sounders.

Atlanta United made it four wins in a row, going to Audi Field and knocking off D.C. United, with Marcelino Moreno delivering the winner in the 82nd minute to pull the Five Stripes even on points in the standings with D.C. United, which currently holds the seventh and final Eastern Conference playoff spot via tiebreaker.

The Philadelphia Union nearly dropped a loss at home on Saturday, but another academy product stepped up to star for Jim Curtin’s men. This time it was teenager Quinn Sullivan stepping up with a stunning 20-yard finish in the 87th minute to help the Union earn a 1-1 draw with CF Montreal.

The Rocky Mountain Derby saw the Colorado Rapids top Real Salt Lake, with Mark-Anthony Kaye making his first taste of the derby a memorable one as the former LAFC midfielder scored the 71st-minute winner for the Rapids.

The weather wasn’t kind to Rivalry Week in MLS, with New York City FC’s visit to Red Bull Arena to play the New York Red Bulls having to be postponed due to a waterlogged field after a storm initially delayed the kickoff of the match for more than two hours.

  1. I think eventually teams will figure out the Sounders winning ways.
    It is D. While MLS doesnt pay defenders. The Sounders ran out a team of 15 year olds and won 1-0…… I am exagerating, barely.

    But they dont give up goals. So while teams like Philly are trading MLS players of the year and Houston…dont even get me started….Seattle signed Marshall.
    Then signed South Americans and Shane Oneil.

    More than likely though, they will keep the focus on Ruidiaz ( who is incredible ) and friends up front. Not saying the front isnt great, it is. I am saying the Sounders, with so many starters out this year, would be in last place right now without the great back line they have had for 7-8 years running now.

  2. Why does it take LAFC something like 25 shots to not score from the run of play? Rodriquez, Rossi, Cifuentes all missed more than a few chances.

    How does Bradley’s game plan manage to create so many chances, yet fail to convert multiple easy shots? Sure, LA’s defense looked shaky, but not putting away goals gives the opposition hope and puts the defense under pressure from hopeful opponents.

    • One thing for sure, and I guess I have to add that I am not a Bradley hater.
      Bradley cant figure this team out. Offense isnt going. D has always been weak and is weaker now. Playoffs are not looking 50-50 right now.
