Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

Sounders earned points from a losing position Saturday for the first time in seven games

Seattle Sounders FC LogoThere was an interesting tidbit in Sounders FC’s weekly notes package Monday:

Saturday’s match at Philadelphia marked the first time since September 8, 2012, that Seattle earned at least a point after going down a goal.

I dug into the media guide to see exactly how many MLS games that stat involved, and here’s what I found.

Sept. 8 — losing 1-0 vs. Chivas USA (won 2-1)
Sept. 22 — losing 1-0 and 2-1 vs. San Jose (lost 2-1)
Oct. 28 — losing 1-0 at Los Angeles (lost 1-0)
Nov. 11 — losing 3-0 at Los Angeles* (lost 3-0)
March 2 — losing 1-0 vs. Montreal (lost 1-0)
March 23 — losing 1-0 at San Jose (lost 1-0)
March 30 — losing 2-0 at Real Salt Lake (lost 2-1)
May 4 — losing 2-1 at Philadelphia (tied 2-2)

* — playoff game

Seattle, of course, was king of the comeback in 2011, when the team went 7-7-3 after allowing the game’s first goal. That set an MLS record for points earned (24) after going down 1-0.

Things cooled in that regard last year when the Sounders were 1-8-4 when conceding first, buoyed only by the Chivas USA win listed above.

San Jose has obviously taken over the role of comeback kings, but how do you feel about Seattle’s comeback abilities?
