Los Angeles Galaxy 0-1 Seattle Sounders FC: Eddie Johnson 6’
Real Madrid’s 5-1 beatdown of the Los Angeles Galaxy proved to be no fluke. Sigi Schmid’s Seattle Sounders proved that theory correct thanks to Eddie Johnson, who was able to break open the scoring in the sixth minute to make it 1-0 to the good of the Sounders.
Early on in the first half, Seattle had a chance to break open the deadlock 35 seconds in but the shot was collected by LA goalkeeper Josh Saunders. Robbie Keane’s first volley in the third minute was cleared for a David Beckham corner. Omar Gonzalez nearly got a header in on a Beckham cross in the fourth minute. Saunders was quick to anticipate the transition.
Keane’s second attempt in the seventh minute was just saved.
Seattle are a team on a mission: to catch the San Jose Earthquakes and Real Salt Lake at the top of the MLS Western Conference standings. With this goal just six minutes in, they are on their way.
