HERE WE GO…game blog

They just played the theme from “Dallas” (I was kid when my parents made us watch that drama). Kickoff 7:36 pm.

I almost feel really bad for FCD. They have a group of maybe three dozen supporters who are singing in a corner waving flags, and everyone else is silent. You can hear the birds chirping.

Ianni at right back, Scott at left.

5th min — Montero shot blocked, play set up by Zakuani, that should have gone in. Jaqua got a foot on it to keep it alive for Fredy. Wow, that could have shot up his confidence but we still wait for Montero to light it up again.

Scott just saved a goal when Kenny Cooper centered a pass to Rocha in the 8th min. Scott blocked shot attempt by Rocha.

12th min — Zakuani is a load for FCD, good run, gets a corner. Injury on the field, it’s FCD’s Steve Purdy and they’re looking at right leg.

Dallas is playing with 10 guys as Purdy is being worked on behind the FCD goal.

16th min — Purdy trots back on.

-Now Cunningham is on the sideline for Dallas.

18 th min — Zakuani plays it in to Jaqua, who heads it to Hurtado who raises his leg and puts it in the net. 1-0 Seattle.

21st min — Zach Scott has left the game with an injury. Tyson Wahl is in for his first game of the season. Jaqua from Zakuani, great pass but Jaqua can’t finish. Seattle is dominating.

27th min — Nice thru ball from Montero on the break to Le Toux, but he can’t get off a shot.

FCD has gone to Brek Shea at FWD for Cunningham.

-George John looks to have a hamstring problem, it seems, and is off the field. Dallas about to make another sub. This is turning into a disaster for FCD. Daniel Torres in for John.

34th min — Zakuani goes down in pain, and as he writhes on the ground, Kenny Cooper takes a shot that has Keller beat to his right, but it goes wide. Zakuani OK now.

36th min– Brad Evans’ shot hits the left post as Torres is yanking his jersey. So close.

38th min — Zakuani is destroying the FCD defenders. But now Brad Evans is hurt, holding his face and now he’s up. He just touched his cheek. Seems just a matter of time before Zakuani matters in a goal.

45th — WOW.. Le Toux had wide open net after beating Saragosa and was able to stop and set up his shot. He missed it wide left. Sounders FC should be up at least 3-0 and maybe 4-0.

45th — In extra time, Rocha takes in a pass and sends it past Keller for a goal, as Hurtado trailed the play.

INJURY REPORT — Zach Scott has an abdominal strain.

1-1 HALF

Zakuani gets yellow card before halftime.

Second half on. No subs for Seattle.

48th min Zakuani with a shot misses wide.

60th min — Shea shot saved by Keller, now its Zakuani centering to JAqua, can’t get off a shot.

65th min — Tyrone Marshall yellow card. He kicked the ball in an FCD players face earlier. Now Drew Moor heads it in on Keller off the free kick, saved.

69th min — Keller might have just prevented a loss with the save of Shea’s header. Shea is finding space in the Seattle defense.

74th min – King on, Jaqua out for Seattle. Le Toux moves to FWD in and King is in his place.

75th min – BIG midair collision between Evans and Burse and Evans is down. Evans has really been knocked around tonight.

78th min — Evans still on the ground. Taken off on a stretcher.

79th min — Nyassi in for Evans. Evans is now up on his feet and walking but with help.

No more subs for Sounders Fc.

Three minutes extra. Ferreira has a shot but too hard. Corner for FCD cleared out. Looks like Sounders FC will be glad to get out with a draw.

DRAW 1-1. Third in a row for SSFc.
