Seattle Sounders FC

Montero leads Whitecaps past former Sounders teammates

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – Fredy Montero scored twice against his former team to help the Vancouver Whitecaps beat the Seattle Sounders 2-1 on Friday night.

The Colombian striker opened the scoring the 65th minute, heading Cristian Techera’s cross beyond goalkeeper Stefan Frei’s fingertips.

Montero, who scored 47 times and added 34 assists in 119 regular-season appearances with Seattle from 2009 to 2012, dropped to his knees after the goal and pointed to the sky in a muted celebration before he was joined by teammates.

On loan to Vancouver (2-3-1) this season from his Chinese club, Montero doubled the lead in the 80th minute off a corner when he nodded home Kendall Waston’s flick on past a helpless Frei.

Will Bruin got one back for defending MLS Cup champion Seattle (1-2-3) in the 89th minute.
