Sounders 2-0 Dynamo

For the first time in Sounders history, the team has won four matches in a row. The Sounders are level at .500, and have taken fourth in the West. Seattle is now fifth overall—remember the top eight go to the playoffs.

An assist from Kasey Keller allows Montero to flip around Eddie Robinson and punch the ball into the net. Montero proceeds to kiss his badge.

Montero then shoots a perfect ball through to Alvaro Fernandez. Although Fernandez managed to trip over the ball, or possibly his feet, he steadies himself enough to beat Tally Hall and calmly flick the ball in. Immediately he gives Montero the credit, and they both do a fun dancing love-fest, complete with a big kiss.

Fredy Montero loves Seattle. There’s no more talk about him heading off to Europe. Sign him, Sounders. Sign him now.

Seattle 2-0 Dynamo

Alvaro Fernandez scores on an assist by Fredy Montero. Fernandez, after just scoring his first MLS goal, gives all the credit to Montero, who embraced him and gave him a big wet kiss. All together now: awwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Just as I say Fernandez had been looking unsettled, too. El Flaco beat Tally Hall and calmly put the ball in the back of the net.

Fredy Montero Scores, Sounders 1-0 Dynamo

Fredy Montero does a backbend over Houston Dynamo defender Eddie Robinson to receive the goal kick from Kasey Keller. He traps the ball, sends it to his favored right foot and puts the ball in the back of the net.

Kasey Keller earns an assist on that goal.

Fredy Montero now has a goal or an assist in the last nine games. Sounders front office—Fredy is kissing his badge. Get your third DP ducks in a line, pay the money, and give this man a decent contract.

Halftime: Sounders 0-0 Dynamo

Sounders supporters had clearly been hoping for a continued run of the great play we’d been seeing over the last few games, but the extreme physical play of the Dynamo have been restricting much of their movement.

While Seattle has had more of the possession, Dynamo have been pressing forward well and putting through some nerve-wracking chances. Fredy Montero had a fantastic free kick in the 17th minute, but the keeper pushed it just wide. It’s clear Montero wants to keep his streak (a goal or assist in the last eight games) going.

This game needs to be stretched out. The wingers need to take it wider. And for goodness sake, Alvaro Fernandez needs to take to the field. There’s no reason Nathan Sturgis should still be in midfield. Bring on El Flaco.
