Sounders cant finish, lose in extra time to LA FC 1-0

The battle on Sunday was close between the Seattle Sounders and LA FC. But in the 93rd minute, a long range free kick from Laurent Ciman to beat Stefan Frei for the games only score.

Statistically, the game was close with the Sounders taking 13 shots to LA’s 14 and time of possession was almost exactly 50/50. There were but just a few seconds left, and a 0-0 tie seemed likely. Unfortunately, as this season has been so far, the luck has been with the opponants.

With this loss, the Sounders continue to dwell in the cellar of the MLS. With just 4 total points, the Sounders will have to find some internal fortitude to carry them through the summer. May 5th, the Sounders will host Columbus and try to turn things around.
