Player statistic

Both teams were well rested after playing their last league game nearly 2 weeks earlier .... United made the most of theirs with a fast start , a nice move found Cordoba clean through and he made no mistake from 10 yards.

It looked like an uphill battle for Sounders until all hell let loose in the 17th minute when they scored 3 goals in 7 minutes. First was Kouyate who cleverly latched onto the ball inside the box to fire it into the top corner. Just 4 minutes later Vietto went through one on one with the keeper and slotted home before Right Back Donati playing his last game for the club ran through and jinked his way into the box before firing home at the near post.

A shell shocked Mowgles used language I'd not heard before as he tried to close the gap before half time.

The stats showed that I'd had 3 shots 2 on target with 3 goals at half time .....  so I was riding some luck.

Second half Mowgles was chasing the game and that gave Sounders more room to play and they finally got their 4th when Saivet received the ball from the midfield , swivelled and smashed it into the top corner.

That was the end of the scoring though both sides had chances to add to their tally

Stats at the end were very equal and it was just the finishing that split the two teams.
