The wins haven’t all been impressive, but Sounders FC’s 7-1-0 stretch is quite the accomplishment.
It’s the best run in franchise history over that length and something not accomplished by any other team this season. Only two teams picked up 21 points in eight games in 2012. None did in 2011.
Seattle has also won four straight, one short of a team record (the Sounders have won five in row on two occasions) and also one short of the longest winning streak of any MLS team this season (Real Salt Lake, New York and Montreal have also won four in a row).
Here is a look at the best eight-game runs in team history:
