Sounders 0 for last 12 in trophy hunt

There are quite a few teams that haven’t won a trophy the past two seasons.

The Sounders just happened to set a high standard for silverware, having won four of the first nine available — U.S. Open Cups in 2009-11 and the Cascadia Cup in 2011.

Since the MLS Cup and Supporters’ Shield were the last two trophies settled in the 2011 season, Seattle has gone o for its last 12 in its top five competitions. Preseason trophies (e.g. this year’s Desert Diamond Cup) don’t count.

Here is a look at the trophy hunt over the years, those won are underlined:

*     *     *

2009 (1/3): MLS Cup, Supp. Shield, Open Cup
2010 (1/3): MLS Cup, Supp. Shield, Open Cup
