MOST COMMENTED

[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Seattle Sounders, winners of the U.S. Open Cup in their first two MLS seasons, moved into the 2011 final with a 1-0 win over FC Dallas Tuesday at the Starfire Sports Stadium. It was the fifth game -- and fifth win -- in the last two weeks for the Sounders, who are also involved in the Concacaf Champions League. Seattle wrapped up August with seven wins and a tie in eight games.

Fredy Montero's goal in the 40th minute decided the tense game that produced six yellow cards.

The win moved Seattle into the final, which it will host on Oct. 4 against the Chicago Fire.

With both teams off this weekend, Seattle and FC Dallas fielded their best possible lineups. Dallas even started Brek Shea, who will join the USA for friendlies against Costa Rica and Belgium.

George John, back from Europe after talks on a transfer to England's Blackburn Rovers collapsed, came on in the second half for Dallas, which was also competing on three fronts.

Like Seattle, FCD opened Concacaf play with two wins.
