Vancouver 2, Sounders FC 0, video highlights and postgame notes

*     *     *

Posted above are the video highlights from Sounders FC’s 2-0 road loss Saturday at Vancouver. Here are some postgame notes:

— Sounders FC lost for the first time against Vancouver (3-1-3).
— Sounders FC missed a chance of setting a franchise-best record through 16 games. A win would’ve done that. A tie would’ve matched the record.
— Sounders FC is 3-5-1 on the road, one loss short of matching the previous worst in a season.
— Sounders FC has lost by 2-0 scores in its last two road games.
— Sounders FC was shut out for the sixth time this season.
— Sounders FC is 0-6-0 when conceding the first goal, 1-6-0 when trailing at halftime (the one win came against Vancouver on June 8).
— Sounders FC’s 16 shots matched a season high.
— Eddie Johnson benefitted from the Good Behavior Incentive, and his four yellow-card now count as three, moving him two away from suspension.
— Seattle leads 63-47-21 in a soccer rivalry that dates to 1974 in the old NASL.
— Vancouver broke a 12-game winless streak in the Cascadia Cup, having gone 0-7-5 against rivals Seattle and Portland.
— Vancouver is 4-0-1 in its past five.
— Vancouver is 6-0-3 at BC Place, one of two teams unbeaten at home.
— Brad Knighton set a career high with seven saves.
— Kenny Miller’s was the earliest goal allowed by the Sounders this season.
