Final. Sounders FC 4, Chivas USA 2. Fans got a good look at trialist Eidur Gudjohnsen, who scored, and George Ogararu in this reserve game.

90′: GOAL SEATTLE! Seth C’deBaca caps the scoring for the Sounders at 4-2.

82′: Sounders FC guest player Seth C’deBaca has entered the game for Alex Caskey and will play on the left.

68′: GOAL SEATTLE! After a scramble on a corner kick it looks like Mike Seamon gets the last touch to knock it in. Daniel Steres flew in to win a header to set up the danger.

62′: GOAL SEATTLE! Cordell Cato equalizer on a low shot that sneaks inside the near post. We’re tied at 2-2.

60′: GOAL CHIVAS USA: Laurent Courtois puts the visitors ahead 2-1 after a scramble in front of the Sounders goal.

54′: Parke with a free header on a free kick, but the service is a tad high.

49′: Ogararu quickly gets a booking for a foul on Courtois. The Romanian right back already showcased some world-class skill on the other end.

46′: Play has resumed. Gudjohnsen has come out. Ogararu has subbed in and will play right back. Seamon has pushed up to right mid and Cato has pushed up to forward.

Chivas USA: Total Shots: 4; Shots on Goal: 2; Fouls: 4; Offside: 2; Corner Kicks: 4; Saves: 1.

Halftime. Sounders FC 1, Chivas USA 1. Looks like trialist George Ogararu might be coming in. He’s been warming up for quite a while on the Seattle sideline.

41′: SAVE! Diving stop by Josh Ford on a curling shot by Cardozo. Good stuff from the ‘keeper.

26′: GOAL CHIVAS! Jose Erick Correa with the equalizer. It’s 1-1.

22′: GOAL SEATTLE! And the crowd gets what it wants. Sammy Ochoa with a cross from the right side and Gudjohnsen finishes right in front of the goal. 1-0 Sounders.

18′: Gudjohnsen has been the victim of a couple offsides call.

5′: A little anticipation in the crowd as Gudjohnsen challenges for a header, but he can’t get much on the shot.

1′: And we’re off! Gudjohnsen, who’s trained some as a midfielder here, is up top with Ochoa.
