Great game this against newly relegated Jordan with the King Of The Hill crown also on the line. 

Sounders started off brightly winning most of the 50/50 challenges and it wasn't long before they went in front when the keeper punched the ball out straight to Saivet's feet who promptly smashed it into the corner of the net. 

Just 10 minutes later Saivet pounced on a goalkeeper parry and hit the ball into an empty net off the post to take Seattle 2 goals ahead.

At half time I felt that the scoreline flattered me a touch but I deserved to be in front .... 

The second half was a different story as Fulham came back into the game and they pulled one back when Elia danced past a couple of defenders nailing a cheeky Sofa bounce before slotting it neatly past Rensing in goal. 

The game was really decided on 65 minutes , Seattle wing wizard Frei was about to shoot inside the box when he was brought down for a penalty ... and Vietto coolly  (not cool at all it was a bit s**t) slotted the ball to the left of the keeper.    3-1 

Back came Fulham though on 78 minutes with their own rebound goal after Rensing parried a shot ...  with Lens firing in.  The last 12 minutes felt like a long time as Jordan pushed for an equaliser  but The Sounders held on for their 6th victory of the season consolidating 2nd place in Division 2.
