MLS Game Summary - Kansas City at Seattle



(Wednesday, June 20, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Seattle 1, Kansas City 1

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Seattle Sounders FC saw its winless streak reach six games on Wednesday as the team was held to a 1-1 draw by Sporting Kansas City at CenturyLink Field.

An early goal from Jacob Peterson put Sporting in front, but Seattle answered seven minutes later with an acrobatic finish from Patrick Ianni.

Both sides had chances to claim all three points, but both teams saw their efforts to claim go-ahead goals denied by the post.

Seattle was reduced to 10 men in stoppage time after a terrible challenge from Alvaro Fernandez, but it wasn't enough time for Sporting to push forward for a winner.

A long throw-in in the eighth minute led to the opening goal as the ball bounced around the penalty area and was nodded back toward the edge of the box by Sporting's Aurelien Collin. Peterson charged forward and hammered a shot into the top corner of the net on the half-volley, putting the hosts behind.

But Seattle was back on level terms seven minutes later when a free kick from Mauro Rosales was finished off by Ianni with an impressive side-winding volley.

The chances continued in the 20th minute when Sporting's Soony Saad struck the crossbar from a tight angle, while Seattle's Eddie Johnson failed to hit the target from 10 yards with only goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen to beat.

Rosales had a great chance to put Seattle ahead after the break, but rolled the ball wide after being played in behind the defense.

Seattle goalkeeper Andrew Weber faced his toughest shot in the second half in the 71st minute. And it came from the head of his teammate, Johnson, who tried to clear a corner kick but instead redirected it on his own net, where Weber made a diving save to bail him out.

Fredy Montero created the final opportunity of the game a few minutes from time when his shot from a tight angle took a deflection and wrong-footed Nielsen, forcing the 'keeper to make an awkward save that was redirected off the post, preserving a point for the visiting side.
