Sounders rest, fall farther back in West

standings 04282013

*     *     *

The primary consequence of a bye week was inevitable: Last place Sounders FC would fall further behind many of its Western Conference rivals in the standings.

Los Angeles and Portland earned big road wins.

Others that earned a point were FC Dallas, Chivas USA, San Jose, Vancouver and Colorado.

Seattle returns to action with three games in two weeks, first at Philadelphia on Saturday, then at Kansas City on May 8, and finally at home versus the Earthquakes on May 11.

You’ll notice first place is already 15 points away, a playoff position is six points away and — most immediately — second-to-last is four points away. Better make those games in hand count.
