Djimi Traore scores the latest MLS goal in Sounders FC history

Seattle Sounders FC LogoThe Sounders left it late Wednesday in Kansas City, as defender Djimi Traore scored a game-winning goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

It was actually the latest MLS goal in team history.

On a side note, Osvaldo Alonso scored in the sixth minute of stoppage time in the 2011 U.S. Open Cup final, and Nate Jaqua scored in the 98th minute of a CONCACAF Champions League series that went into extra time.

Anyways, I went back to find all the league goals scored by Seattle in the 90th minute or later, and where’s what I found:

90+4′ — Djimi Traore vs. Sporting KC (May 8, 2013)
90+3′ — Jeff Parke vs. Sporting KC (May 21, 2011)
90+2′ — Mike Fucito vs. Sporting KC (April 17, 2010)
90+2′ — Fredy Montero vs. Chicago (Aug. 28, 2010)
90+2′ — Lamar Neagle vs. Sporting KC (Aug. 6, 2011)
90+1′ — Fredy Montero vs. D.C. United (June 10, 2010)
90+1′ — Alvaro Fernandez vs. Philadelphia (April 16, 2011)
90+1 ‘– Fredy Montero vs. San Jose (Aug. 11, 2012)
90+1′ — Own goal vs. Chivas USA (Aug. 25, 2012)
90′ — Own goal vs. D.C. United (June 10, 2010)
90′ — Fredy Montero vs. Toronto FC (June 18, 2011)
90′ — Mauro Rosales vs. Sporting KC (Aug. 6, 2011)
90′ — Fredy Montero vs. Vancouver (May 19, 2012)

You’ll notice Kansas City is a common victim to these late strikes, and the goals by Traore, Jeff Parke, Mike Fucito and Lamar Neagle were all game winners, and the one by Mauro Rosales was a late equalizer.

Fredy Montero, who is on loan with Colombia’s Millonarios this season, also had a penchant for the dramatic in his four years here with five of these 13 goals.

Aside from Traore’s — the most recent — is there any goal listed above that particularly sticks with you?
