Well, this one was tough. A very makeshift Seattle Sounders lineup took the show on the road to MAPFRE Stadium and Columbus Crew SC, and it didn't go well. The Crew stars made some great plays, but they got plenty of help from the Sounders who seemed to have forgotten how to defend for stretched of the match.

Referee Ted Unkel might not have won over many fans from D.C.
