POLL: Do you think the Sounders can win the series?

Yikes. Not sure anyone saw that coming, even the most optimistic of Real Salt Lake fans.

Sounders FC hadn’t lost by three goals all season and had only twice in its three-year history. But the series isn’t over. The second leg in the Western Conference semifinals is 7 p.m. Wednesday at CenturyLink Field.

In a forlorn visitor’s locker-room Saturday, players still salvaged some hope.

“We’ve dug ourselves a hole, but if any team can come back, I believe it’s us,” said forward Mike Fucito.

“They won 3-0 against us. Why can’t we do the same?” added forward Fredy Montero.

What do you think?
