Also, Chad Marshall is totally fine, you guys.

After missing a preseason match and having a few practice sessions reduced, Jordan Morris is confident he will travel to Texas to take on the Houston Dynamo (Sat. March 4, 5:30 p.m., Q13 FOX). Asked directly about his ankle, the Seattle Sounders forward responded, "It feels really good.

Sounders center back cleared concussion protocol.

Brad Evans has cleared the concussion protocol and will be available for Wednesday's game against D.C. United, Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid told reporters on Tuesday.

Evans' availability was cast into doubt when he was struck in the side of the head by a close-range Kei Kamara shot during Saturday's game against the New England Revolution.

Heading into Saturday's home match against the Colorado Rapids, the Seattle Sounders hope to earn a much different result than that of Week 7's 3-1 loss in Colorado. Head coach Sigi Schmid recognized the threat that the Rapids present to the Sounders: "I think it'll be a good game, obviously Colorado is on top of the table in the West.

And just like that, it seems, the good feelings and positivity over the past couple weeks are gone. No, it wasn't anything as extreme as being played off the pitch. Rather, it was the simple act of the Seattle Sounders losing for the second time in their past seven. Confidence is a funny thing like that.

Sounders surrender another somewhat soft penalty

The Seattle Sounders find themselves trailing early after Chad Marshall was whistled for a penalty and Mauro Diaz converted. It wasn't exactly an egregious penalty, but Marshall made it tough on himself by grabbing Walker Zimmerman in plain view of referee Ricardo Salazar.

In a vacuum, it's the kind of penalty that is probably going to get called more often than it won't.

The Philadelphia Union played admirably, however a red card was again their undoing - this time against the Seattle Sounders.

Los Sounders han encontrado en su forma de ganar demasiado sufrimiento. Con mas ocasiones de gol que en los partidos pasados, con sus atacantes enchufados, con un hombre mas en la cancha y asediando sin cesar a la portería del Philadelphia Union, el triunfo de 2 1 es un mezquino reflejo de lo que pudo ser comodamente un resultado mas amplio.

An unmarked man on a corner kick and a silly foul by Roland Alberg doomed the Union Saturday night in Seattle.

Going away to what is usually one of the toughest places to play in MLS, the Union fell short on the road at Seattle losing by a score of 2-1 late Saturday night.

In what was by far the most "feel good" match of the season, Seattle Sounders beat Philadelphia Union 2-1 for Seattle's second win of the season.

The first half was a little dicey at times, as Jordan Morris and Oalex Anderson had a few solid chances but didn't manage to put them away.

We analyze the heartbreaking last-second goal from Seattle's Chad Marshall that robbed two points from the Houston Dynamo.

There was some good and some bad to take from the Houston Dynamo's draw with the Seattle Sounders on Sunday at BBVA Compass Stadium. The attack was promising (at least for part of the game) and the defense looked fairly solid, but the Dynamo gave away a couple points at the bitter end when Chad Marshall—one of the many Seattle players stationed around the box—scored a goal on the last kick of the game.

Morris will be the Sounder closest to goal in today's formation

With Clint Dempsey away with the US Men's National Team, the task of leading the Seattle Sounders attack falls to the forward trio of Herculez Gomez, Jordan Morris and Aaron Kovar.

The only unit that comes into this match entirely healthy is the midfield, but what a midfield it is: Andreas Ivanschitz, Osvaldo Alonso and Erik Friberg are three names that can make some beautiful music together.

The draw didn't cover up any poor play. Poor play still existed, but poor play can get points in MLS.

Chad Marshall's goal was a wonderful moment. With it the Seattle Sounders are now on a loss-less streak, undefeated in two games. But there are a few problems that are as evident today as they were prior to game, maybe even more so.

It's always frustrating when many good performances don't add up to a win, or even a goal. These players know the fans expect more, but it's hard to point to a really bad outing for any of the Sounders in their loss to Colorado. While no Sounder made your jaw drop, there was plenty of attacking play to be excited about, and Jermaine Jones was effectively contained in the midfield.

Chad Marshall will miss his first game of the season after suffering a right hamstring strain in training this week. In his place will be Zach Scott, who will get his fourth start of the season. We'll also see Clint Dempsey and Erik Friberg in the midfield together for the first time this season.

Although the lineup is listed as a 4-3-3, with Aaron Kovar and Andreas Ivanschitz in the forward band it will more likely play like a 4-2-3-1 or possibly even a 4-4-2 with Dempsey effectively slotting in as a withdrawn striker.

Seattle Sounders defender Chad Marshall is no shrinking violet on the pitch—he's loud, he's tough, and he'll fight for every single tackle for 90 minutes straight. Teammate Herculez Gomez said that Marshall has a "nasty" side, but it's only ever seen on the pitch.

Chad Marshall's fourth goal elevated him into an elite group of Seattle goal-scoring central defenders, including one who led Sounders in scoring.

Down through the years, Seattle certainly can claim its share of goal-scoring central defenders. Beginning with David Gillett driving home a corner kick in '74 and renewed through Chad Marshall's flick to the far corner versus Chicago, the big backline boys have often proven the difference between victory and defeat, at both ends of the pitch.

Seattle Sounders are creating chances via set-pieces. Eventually they were going to get a goal from them, if only via forcing an LA Galaxy error. Jelle Van Damme loses his mark on Chad Marshall, and instead heads the ball into his own goal tying the match at 1-1 in the 35th minute.

With Torres, Fernandez and Marshall as targets Seattle should be able to earn more opportunities from similar schemes later.
