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.

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

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.
