Live Commentary

  • That's all she wrote. Four wins in a row for Seattle, and an 8th on the trot without a win for the Union.
  • 90' + 2'
    Dempsey picks up a yellow card for a late challenge, but the Sounders have just a couple minutes to kill off to grab another win.
  • 90' + 1'
    Yellow Card Clint Dempsey
  • 88'
    SubstitutionObafemi Martins Zach Scott
  • 88'
    Dangerous spot here. Evans commits a foul and the Union will have a chance to whip a ball in from the right side fo the box.
  • 87'
    SubstitutionSheanon Williams Antoine Hoppenot
  • 87'
    Nearly another good chance for the Sounders as Dempsey just misses Cooper on a through ball that had him in on goal.
  • 85'
    Good finish from Marshall on the end of a monster game. Once again the Sounders have come from behind.
  • 84'
    Goal Chad Marshall
  • 84'
    GOAL!!! Marshall, from the corner he bangs home the header.
  • 83'
    Okugo with a really nice play to cut out a cross from Dempsey with Cooper lurking this time. Out for another corner.
  • 83'
    Kenny Cooper on the pitch for Neagle and tries to float in a cross for Dempsey, but Philly gets it clear.
  • 81'
    SubstitutionAndrew Wenger Conor Casey
  • 79'
    SubstitutionLamar Neagle Kenny Cooper
  • 79'
    Good build from the Union but didn't go quickly enough. Seattle's most vulnerable on the break, and Wenger slowed it down.
  • 76'
    SubstitutionCristian Omar Maidana Leo Fernandes
  • 75'
    MacMath has been a beast in goal Another great save on Pappa who tried to fire it in on the near post.
  • 74'
    CHANCE!! Dempsey can't get the header on frame, but the Union caught napping at the back again.
  • 72'
    Dempsey commits a foul, had to give it a shot there, Martins just played it too long and Dempsey gave the defender a little tug to try and get on the end of it first.
  • 71'
    MacMath with another save, this time on Pappa, and another corner coming. This time the Union get it cleared.
  • 70'
    Good work from Neagle to win a corner there, and another bit of pressure for the Union to deal with.
  • 69'
    Marshall has been a monster at the back tonight for Seattle. Another huge block there on Maidana.
  • 65'
    Wenger heads back to the other end, again on the break, and really good work from him before Marshall blocks it out for a corner.
  • 64'
    Seattle turning on the style and turnign the screws there for a minute. Dempsey Martins and Pappa all showing some flashes of skill.
  • 62'
    Martins with his 4th of the year, and that was poor from Philly's back line, just let him waltz in and you can't do that with a striker that talented.
  • 61'
    Goal Obafemi Martins
  • 61'
    GOAL!! Martins just latched onto a loose ball and that's how quickly this Seattle team can strike.
  • 59'
    Pretty open game at the moment, going end to end. Both teams finding plenty of space to work with.
  • 56'
    Another short break as Williams and Dempsey clash for a cross. Both took good little hits there, but they're back up and moving.
  • 52'
    Evans picks up the ball down the left and cuts back onto his right foot to float a cross in. Over everybody, but Seattle moving well right now.
  • 51'
    SubstitutionDylan Remick M. Pappa
  • 50'
    This is interesting. Pappa comes on, so we'll be seeing Brad Evans as a left back. 
  • 50'
    Little injury delay as Remick goes down.
  • 46'
    We're back at it. Philly moving right to left as I see it.
  • Second half just about to get underway.
  • 45' + 1'
    There's the whistle. Philly heads to the break 1-0 up from a Brad Evans own goal.
  • 45'
    Dempsey has a go left footed from the top of the box and sends it up and over.
  • 43'
    Another chance for the Union, with Traore giving the ball away and Marshall having to jump in front of a hit by Le Toux.
  • 42'
    Nogueira with some fancy footwork wiggles some space in Seattle's box, but his cross flashes all the way across goal.
  • 40'
    WHAT A SAVE! MacMath comes up big and pushes Alonso's shot wide.
  • 39'
    PENALTY!! Hand ball given as Dempsey and Pineda exchange passes. Not the best call there.
  • 37'
    Rough and tumble for the last minute or so. Martins taken down on one end, Philly draws a foul on the other after none is given for Martins. Ref is letting them play this one pretty loose. 
  • 36'
    MacMatch again punches clear.
  • 35'
    Yellow Card Maurice Edu
  • 35'
    Dempsey draws another foul, this one earns Mo Edu a card.
  • 32'
    Dempsey's free kick was headed for the corner but was punched away by MacMath.
  • 31'
    Yellow Card Sheanon Williams
  • 31'
    That was strange. Williams just fouled Traore for no good reason. Now a real chance for the Sounders.
  • 29'
    Maidana is doing work for the Union. Nice run down the left, slick little turn, he's looked very shar tonight.
  • 26'
    Yedlin just had to track Le Toux down and did so well, send Seattle back the other way where Dempsey, Alonso and Martins played a little one-touch game before Martins sent the ball across the face of goal.
  • 25'
    Corner to the Union. Good tackle from Evans, but out behind the goal.
  • 18'
    Marshall did a nice job there to kill off another Philly attack, but the Sounders are on the back foot here and have been since the goal really.
  • 17'
    Plenty of the play in the middle of the pitch at the moment, but the Union making it very hard on Seattle at the moment. 
  • 15'
    That goal came more or less out of nothing. Now the Sounders are in a familiar position, trying to fight back into a game.
  • 13'
    Own Goal Brad Evans
  • 13'
    GOAL!!! The Union take the lead from a set play, with Brad Evans deflecting the ball into his own net.
  • 10'
    Wenger with a chance, and it's Philly on the break with Wenger ripping a shot right into the hands of Frei. Really nice move out of the back, fast through the Seattle midfield, and that's the danger this Sounders team faces.
  • 7'
    NEAGLE!!! OFF THE BAR!! Dempsey squared it for Matins, or maybe it was meant for Neagle, either way it ends up on Neagle's foot on the back post and he slams the ball off the crossbar.
  • 6'
    Evans hit hard against Wheeler as he tries to get on the end of the cross. Nasty little collision. Foul called on Evans.
  • 4'
    Not much happening in these early exchanges. Seattle has had most of the ball, but aside from a Clint Dempsey foul in the box killing off one move, there hasn't been much in the way of attack.
  • 2'
    Another big player back in the starting team tonight, but on the ohter side with Sebastien Le Toux on the right side of the Union midfield.
  • 2'
    There was some question as to how Seattle would deal with Brad Evans coming back, but he's slotted in on the right side of midfield. 
  • 1'
    Here we go, we're off and running.
  • Just minutes away from opening kick now. Plenty of reason to pay attention here, including getting to see the best attack in MLS, with Seattle boasting Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins, who have both been very good so far this season.
  • The Sounders come in as the hottest team in the league, fresh off of three wins in a row. For the Union, recent results have been headed in the other direct. Two losses and a draw are not idea, but heading across country for a late kickoff against the Sounders makes it all that much worse.
  • Welcome in to Goal's MLS Game of the Week. Tonight's match feature the Philadelphia Union and the Seattle Sounders, and promises to be a good one. Stick around and we'll bring you the live call as it unfolds.
