MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Signed last June but waived in November without playing a league game, Lamar Neagle is back with the Seattle Sounders and making a case to stick with the team, scoring the winning goal in their 1-0 win over Norway's SK Brann to take fifth place in the La Manga Cup on Thursday afternoon.

(Sounders-Brann HIGHLIGHTS.)

The lone goal came in the 84th minute when Pete Vagenas drove a low ball through a tangle of legs in the goalmouth and Neagle, waiting at the far stick, put the ball away.

The UNLV product also scored in the Feb. 11 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps in Casa Grande, Ariz.

"He's like Houdini," Coach Sigi Schmid said of Neagle. "Every time we get to the end of a camp -- and maybe the camp hasn't gone his way -- but he finds a way to score, like he did against Vancouver, and he found a way to score today. I think we're going to name him Houdini. He pulls out his bag of tricks right at the end there."

Seattle won its final two tournament matches without allowing a goal and is now 3-1-0 in preseason.

The Sounders will resume play on March 6 at the Vancouver Whitecaps.
