SEATTLE (AP) – Cristian Roldan scored the go-ahead goal in the 78th minute and the Seattle Sounders overcame a three-goal deficit in the second half to beat D.C. United 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Will Bruin, Brad Evans, and Gustav Svensson also scored for Seattle (7-7-6), with the four goals coming in a 27-minute span.

Bruin set up the winner when he stole the ball at midfield and sent it ahead to a streaking Roldan. Roldan caught up with it, got around United defender Steve Birnbaum and beat goalkeeper Travis Warra to the left side from 12 yards in front.
