Sounders score fifth winner vs. Kansas City in stoppage time (game notes)

This stat gets more amazing the more I see it: Sounders FC has scored five game-winning goals against Sporting Kansas City in stoppage time (all within the past seven games). Chad Barrett was the latest to join that remarkable history in Saturday’s thrilling season opener.

Here is a rundown…

Date Scorer Location Implication Minute
March 8, 2014 Chad Barrett Home Winner 94th
May 8, 2013 Djimi Traore Away Winner 94th
August 6, 2011 Lamar Neagle Away Winner 92nd
August 6, 2011 Mauro Rosales Away Equalizer 90th
May 21, 2011 Jeff Parke Home Winner 93rd
April 17, 2010 Mike Fucito Home Winner 92nd

You might remember Seattle also knocked out K.C. in the 2009 U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals with an 89th-minute penalty kick by Sebastien Le Toux.
