Short Hand Sounders Blank Toronto FC, 2-0

Article author:



Dylan Teves scored his first pro goal six minutes before halftime, helping the short-handed Seattle Sounders win 2-0 at Toronto FC on Saturday night.

Fredy Montero has added a second goal for the Sounders season. The Sounders played their third match in eight days and had no patrons.

Among them, striker Raul Ruidías and defender Xavier Arreaga missed due to a hamstring injury. Veteran winger Jordan Morris didn't travel with the team after scoring in the last two Sounders games.

Stefan Cleveland made six saves in Seattle (8-7-2, 26 points) and moved up to 4th place in the Western Conference. After losing to Dallas 2-0 on May 7, he won the MLS Cup three times in 13th place in the West.

Alejandro Pozuero was closest to Toronto's score (5-10-3, 18 points) and lost in his second home match of the season.

The host also played in the third match in eight days, playing almost all three at the home stadium. Italian star attacker Lorenzo Incine is set to debut next week and they remain in 12th place in the east.

Quentin Westberg stopped at the home team twice and scored goals in 26 consecutive games up to last season.

He could do almost nothing with either Seattle goal.

The Sounders, the content that absorbs pressure and initiates a counterattack, started scoring using one of these counters.

In a play that started with Cleveland's clearance, Leochu hit a one-touch pass in the lower left corner, defeating defender Carlos Salcedo in the left corner and playing a low cross to the near post.

22-year-old Teebs met it and sent his first low finish past Westberg from the edge of a 6-yard box.

Montero hit the crossbar seven minutes after half-time, and Cleveland made a great one-on-one save with Pozuero with his left foot.

Shortly thereafter, the Sounders put it out of reach in another complex sequence. Montero changed another goal from close range after finishing it with a skillful give and go with Nicolas Lodeiro.
