Rookie Rose leads Sounders past Caledonia

MOST COMMENTED

[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] English rookie Andy Rose scored one goal and had assists on first-half goals by Sammy Ochoa and Fredy Montero to to lead the Seattle Sounders to a 3-1 win over Trinidad & Tobago's Caledonia AIA in their Concacaf Champions League group stage play on Thursday.

The Sounders jumped out to a 3-0 lead at the half, but Caledonia cut the deficit in the 50th minute when Kareem Joseph scored from the penalty spot.

Montero was one of only four players who started the Sounders' 2-1 win at Colorado on Saturday. Jeff Parke, Osvaldo Alonso and Alex Caskey also started in both games for Seattle, which has one of its biggest MLS home games of the season on tap for Sunday against the Los Angeles Galaxy.

"The accomplishment we wanted to achieve was to win the game," said Sounders coach Sigi Schmid. "It was nice that we could take Ozzie [Alonso] off and he only had to play 45 minutes, that was good. We didn't get any injuries, so it was good."

Schmid liked the play of Rose, a first-year player out of UCLA, in the second half after his central midfield partner Alonso went off.

"Especially when Ozzie went out, he was the one who sort of had to run our game a little bit more," said Schmid. "It took a little while for him to get into that rhythm, but I thought as the second half went on he became better at it."
