Sounders score 2 in extra time to down the Loons

The Seattle Sounders went a full 90 before they decided to kick int in overdrive and score 2 goals in extra time to win their 4th game in a row. The Sounders now have a 7 game undefeated streak as they down Minnesota 2-1 on Saturday.

 

A handball by Minnesota in extra time gave Nico Lodiero a chance at a goal kick which

And with time expiring a flick of the heel dropped the game winner in.

This win now puts the Sounders five points out of the playoffs with a game in hand. If the Sounders are to earn their way in, it will have to be against the West leading FC Dallas squad whom they face next.
