Seattle Sounders 3, NYCFC 1
SEATTLE – Here the Seattle Sounders are recovering from a terrible start to the season to make a summer run towards a playoff berth.
If only Cristian Roldan felt that the Sounders played well during this series of three straight wins and six straight with no loss to quarrel again Western Conference
& # 39; & # 39; We play games, we win these games because we play a good defense and we score one or two goals & # 39 ;, Roldan said. That's the scary part. You are thinking of six undefeated and you think if we start to play well and how we should we can go on a really long range. "
Roldan, Gustav Svensson and Harry Shipp all achieved their second goal of the season and the resurgent Sounders ended New York City FC's win streak with a 3-1 win on Sunday.
Seattle finished with a third victory in a row an eight-day stretch, taking nine crucial points to rebound from a dreadful first half to the season Seattle has not lost to a June 30 setback to compete with Portland.
"We We've got a really big hole, so we have to score points, I do not care where we collect them, how we collect them, we have to earn points because that team deserves to be in the playoffs, "said Seattle Coach Brian Schmetzer.
Roldan scored a clever goal in the 36th minute to go through the penalty area without being sidelined and standing at the end of Kelvin Leerdad's deflected pass. Roldan's right-footer overcame Sean Johnson to give Seattle an early advantage.
Svensson doubled the lead in the 51st minute and beat Johnson out of 25 yards. Nicolas Lodeiro left the pass for Svensson to make a late attempt and Johnson could barely get a hand on strike. Shipp's 86th-minute goal was the decisive goal after Jesus Medina of NYCFC hit midway through the second half.
The three goals allowed Seattle to break the 20 goals for the season and become the last team in the MLS. The lack of confidence in the first half of the season was a big part of Seattle's struggles, but in the last three games he has started with new designated player Raul Ruidiaz. Ruidiaz had the first goal in Seattle's 1-1 win at San Jose earlier this week and was a constant threat to NYCFC without scoring a goal.
NYCFC reached the second place in the Eastern Conference thanks to the winning streak of four games and tried to solve the difficult task of just days apart on both coasts. NYCFC won in Orlando City on Wednesday, but could not make it to Seattle. Medina's goal was his fifth of the season, but NYCFC fought for chances to score.
NYCFC coach Domenec Torrent was unhappy with the plan, which forces his club to play just days apart across the country.
& # 39; & # 39; I was very proud of my players because it is not easy. I do not have to apologize – it's a fact, "said Torrent." We have a big problem in MLS. If you want to keep your balance in the MLS, it's not fair to play two games in three days. "
NYCFC had gone 434 minutes before Roldan's goal, a span of more than four games, with the last goal allowed by NYCFC coming in on June 30th after a 3-2 draw with Chicago in the 52nd minute
