Sounders rally to 3-3 draw with Revolution
By MATT PENTZ
SEATTLE (AP) – Osvaldo Alonso scored Seattle’s third goal in a 13-minute stretch to help the Seattle Sounders rally for a 3-3 draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night.
Trailing 3-0 with 15 minutes of regulation time remaining, Seattle (2-2-4) midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro scored to spark the comeback. Will Bruin cut the deficit to 3-2 in the 85th minute, and Alonso tied it in the 88th. Joevin Jones was credited with assists on two of the three goals, while Lodeiro and Gustav Svensson both helped on the final tally.
Revolution forward Juan Agudelo scored twice for New England (2-3-4). The Revolution took the lead in the 15th minute courtesy of a gaffe by Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei. Daigo Kobayashi’s shot from well outside the penalty box was tame, but the shot was still able to sneak through Frei’s body before rolling into the back of the net.
Agudelo scored on a header 11 minutes later, then made it 3-0 early in the second half when he finished off a New England counterattack.
The result extends Seattle’s home unbeaten streak to 14 in regular season and playoff action dating back to last year, which ties the longest such mark in club history. New England is now winless in five matches away from home.
