MLS Talking Points: Sounders reward themselves, again
by Paul Kennedy on Monday, Sep 26, 2016 12:39 AM EDT
PhotoTheir playoff hopes would not have been totally extinguished if they had lost to the LA Galaxy Sunday, but the Seattle Sounders' situation looks a lot better after a 4-2 win at StubHub Center, where they had not won since 2009, their first MLS season. The win moved the Sounders to within three points with two games in hand on sixth-place Portland. A win at home against Chicago on Wednesday will move Seattle into sixth place.

-- Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris, joking after he scored his well-taken winning goal in the 4-2 win over the LA Galaxy with the outside of his right foot. Critics are argued he has been too reliant on his right foot and missed chances he could have scored with his left foot. Morris' second goal 10 minutes later came with his left foot. (Seattle Times)
