Sounders beat Vancouver (again), go 3-0-1 in preseason games in Arizona

Sounders FC capped the Arizona phase of training camp with a 2-1 win against Vancouver on Sunday, a familiar scoreline this preseason.

Seattle, now 3-0-1 in its exhibition schedule, had also beaten San Jose and the Whitecaps by the same margin Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

Goals were scored by trialist Kevin Parsemain and midfielder Andy Rose. Parsemain’s was especially impressive as the 25-year-old Martinique international makes a strong push to earn a roster spot; his two goals are tied with Obafemi Martins for the team’s preseason lead.

New addition Marco Pappa made his first appearance Sunday, playing a role in the buildup to Parsemain’s goal in his 45 minutes. A couple new trialists have joined the group, midfielders Gonzalo Pineda and John Arroyo.

Vancouver’s Carlyle Mitchell scored his team’s lone goal with a header off a corner kick. The Whitecaps had missed a penalty kick earlier in the game through Russell Teibert, and Darren Mattocks nearly had a late equalizer, as well.

Here are the highlights:
