FINAL: Sounders FC 2, N.E. Revolution 1, game thread

I’ll have some postgame notes on the Twitter feed.

* * *

Final. Sounders FC 2, New England 1. Good comeback win for Seattle at home. That’s three in a row. 5-1-4 in the last 10.

90′: Soares booked. Four minutes of stoppage time.

88′: Wahl booked. Time wasting? Jaqua comes in for Rosales.

85′: CROSSBAR! Schilawski rips a shot that beats Keller but hammers off the frame. Wow.

83′: CenturyLink Field attendance: 36,212. Wahl down and needs some treatment. He’s OK though.

81′: Schilawski in for Cochrane.

79′: Lekic booked for barking at the official. He was upset with a non-call on Hurtado.

77′: Seattle still with more of the play.

72′: Feilhaber gets an open shot, but it’s blocked well. Then Cochrane is booked for taking out Rosales.

70′: Noonan in for Fernandez for his first appearance of the season. Could be his last with his contract expiring this week.

68′: Levesque nearly on the board again, but Reis keeps his header out.

66′: Wahl with an ambitious shot. Well over the goal.

62′: Lekic just missed the far post on a tight-angled shot. Kenny Mansally and Zak Boggs coming in for Nyassi and Guy.

60′: Curling shot by Neagle just misses the far post. Seattle appears to be in control of this one.

50′: Corner kick for New England, Joseph’s header is saved by Keller! Big stop. Second effort is cleared.

49′: Fernandez down. Needs treatment.

47′: Jeff Parke suffering from vision problems. That’s what led to the early sub.

46′: No halftime subs. We’re underway.

Halftime: Some stats. Shots: NE 5-3. Shots on goal: 2-2. Fouls: 5-5. Offsides: 0-0. Corner kicks: 3-3. Saves: SEA 1-0.

Halftime. Sounders FC 2, New England 1. Great response from Seattle after the early Nyassi goal.

45+2′: Free kick for Seattle. Rosales swings it in and Reis punched it out. Fernandez still down. Gets up a little later. Corner kick coming. Last play of the half? Comes out to him again and it’s crossed in and cleared.

45′: Three minutes of stoppage time.

43′: Fernandez now tied with Brad Evans for the team lead in goals (4). Though all of Flaco’s have come from the run of play. Evans has two PKs.

40′: GOAL SEATTLE! Nice buildup from the Sounders, Rosales to Levesque to Fernandez, who powers a shot past Reis to make it 2-1.

37′: That’s the first goal of Wahl’s MLS career.

34′: GOAL SEATTLE! Tyson Wahl with a golazo off the free kick! Curls it perfectly into the top corner! It’s tied 1-1.

33′: Collision just outside the N.E. penalty box sets up a dangerous free kick for Seattle. Rosales again down and gets treatment. Cochrane on the other end also looked at.

31′: Joseph skies a long-distance shot. Pleads for a corner kick, but won’t get it.

30′: Lot of good attacking stuff from Seattle. A goal seems like it could be coming.

26′: Carrasco booked for taking out Feilhaber on a counterattack.

22′: Big fracas after Carrasco is taken out. A lot of pushing and shoving. Phelan came in very late and cleared out the rookie with a sliding tackle. Just a yellow card. But Carrasco looks to be OK.

22′: Rosales has hit the deck about 10 times already today.

19′: Sounders creating chances on crosses, but Reis hasn’t been bothered yet.

17′: Nyassi was a shot that Keller blocks out for a corner kick.

15′: Parke getting treatment. Not sure what happened there. Patrick Ianni comes in to replace him in the 17th minute.

13′: So much for that 0-0 prediction. Pretty free-flowing game.

9′: Free kick to Seattle after Rosales is taken out. It’s over everyone for a goal kick.

6′: Nyassi was wide open. Haven’t seen the replay yet. Any deflection? Should Keller have done better?

3′: First corner kick to New England. And it’s a goal! Corner kick played on the ground to the top of the box, and Sainey Nyassi rips a shot past Keller. 1-0 Revs.

1′: And we’re underway!

Pregame: Lineups came out a bit late, so I’m a little behind. The teams are walking out now on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. Seattle in green-blue-green. New England in dark blue.
