The Sounders, with a win over the weekend, picked up ground on everyone in the West except Real Salt Lake.
The Los Angeles Galaxy had the most notable result, a shocking 5-0 road loss to the New England Revolution. Who saw that one coming?
Elsewhere, FC Dallas and Colorado played to a 2-2 tie, while Portland was inactive. Real Salt Lake stayed hot with its fourth win in six games. And Vancouver, which heads to CenturyLink Field this weekend, beat the Red Bulls to stay in the mix.
You’ll notice Seattle is back in a playoff position when you consider points per game, which is a bit of an equalizing measure with teams leaguewide having played between 16 and 12 games.
Any thoughts on the Sounders’ positioning after another week?
