Sounders match franchise record for margin of victory in MLS game

Real Salt Lake coach Jeff Cassar was willing to somewhat disregard Seattle’s final two goals Saturday, saying they came on the counterattack as the visitors pushed forward. Maybe so, but the result goes into the record books as what it was.

Sounders 4, RSL 0.

The four-goal margin matched a franchise record for the margin of victory in an MLS game.

So did coach Sigi Schmid think the score/performance sent a message?

“Right now we’re not about sending messages,” Schmid said. “We’re in first place, we wanted to hold onto first place, and we talked about creating some separation there. As a group we are maturing, and being able to step into a game between a first-place team and a second-place team and win and have a convincing result speaks volumes for our character.”

Here is a look at some of the biggest wins in the Sounders’ MLS history:
