During the last meeting with Chivas USA the Seattle Sounders had trouble defending them within the 18. That problem did not occur Saturday, in fact the defense held the Goats to just six shots and or passes in the penalty area. That defensive improvement held Chivas to just one goal. What may have gone unnoticed is that in the previous match with six goals for the Sounders they had 11 Key Passes plus Assists.

In a game that was really in their control throughout, the Sounders needed to come from behind to beat that other Chivas USA, after two set pieces had the home team down 2-1. But as the first team did on Saturday, so the reserves mimicked on Sunday, as Seattle picked up their second straight come-from-behind reserve win with a 4-2 victory.

All hail Eddie Johnson. The Seattle Sounders forward has now scored 13 league goals, setting a new team record with seven matches left to play.

The two he scored on Saturday were vintage Johnson, leading the Sounders to a 2-1 win over Chivas USA. The first was a matter of him out leaping three Chivas USA defenders and was very reminiscent of a goal he scored against the New England Revolution earlier this year.

SEATTLE, Wash. - They play the games for a reason, and for 88 minutes Saturday afternoon swooning Chivas USA (7-12-7) looked like it might defy the odds and earn a draw with the Seattle Sounders (13-6-8).

But this late in the season there are also reasons why some teams are fighting for the Supporters' Shield while others watch their playoff hopes dwindle away.

If you feel like you've seen enough of Chivas USA imagine being the players and coaches that watch that match tape to get ready for them.

No they are not the New York Red Bulls or the LA Galaxy (or Toronto FC if they were good), but they are a have.
