Real Salt Lake’s Sebastian Saucedo sent a screamer into the net during 61st minute to down the Seattle Sounders 1-0 on Saturday. On a drive from the left wing, the 21 year old launched his shot from beyond the box, off Sounder Goalie Stefan Fei’s outstretched fingers landing in the upper corner of the net.

The Sounders came back to nearly tie the game when Magnus Wolff Eikrem sent a free kick to the box where Lamar Neagle tapped a header to the net before RSL keeper Nick Rimando knocked it out of bounds.

The game featured a new formation, a 4-1-4-1 after having experimented with a 5-4-1. The plan was to push the attack featuring Clint Dempsey; however, it shows once again that the loss of Jordan Morris has severely impacted the offense of this Sounder squad.
