88′: Okoli in for Montano.
83′: SAVE! Nolly with a big stop on Montano’s open chance.
75′: Kovar in for Noonan.
68′: Tan walks off under his own power. Needs treatment.
63′: Perfectly timed run by Samuel, leads to a corner kick chance, but Scott heads it off target.
58′: Samuel shows good speed on a breakaway chance. Can’t quite control the volley to get it on goal.
49′: Vancouver makes some changes, most notably Peter Vagenas in as a center mid.
46′: We’re underway in the second half. Myron Samuel is in for Sheridan.
Halftime: After one minute of stoppage time, the first half is over. Sounders FC up 2-0.
34′: SAVE! Nolly with a big stop on Seamon. Rebound chance goes wide.
26′: GOAL SEATTLE! Zach Scott at the far post heads a ball across the goal to Roger Levesque, who nods it home. Sounders FC up 2-0.
25′: As Terry Boss makes a comfortable save, here’s the O’Brian White interview if you’re interested.
20′: I’m transcribing our O’Brian White group interview. So apologies if the updates aren’t as frequent.
16′: Good skill from Noonan results in another shot on goal for Sheridan.
13′: Sheridan active again, nearly sets up a chance for Tetteh.
7′: GOAL SEATTLE! And it’s trialist Cillian Sheridan in the 7th minute on a cross from Miguel Montano. How’s that for a first impression?
