First Half

Despite missing Obafemi Martins (knee), Shalrie Joseph (hamstring), Steve Zakuani (groin) and Osvaldo Alonso (birth of daughter), the Seattle Sounders certainly did not look like a depleted team early. In the tenth minute, the always explosive Eddie Johnson scored on a corner kick service from Mauro Rosales, and Seattle were up 1-0.

The only goal of the match came when the Portland Timbers won a corner kick and kept pounding away at the goal mouth. They would eventually score after a Ford save and Yedlin clearance stopped earlier attempts on goal. Much of the game was similar as the Seattle Sounders were out-of-synch and pushing deep reserves and non-roster players against a lineup much closer to starting XI from Porter's side.

There's no reason to pretend the start of this season has been anything other than totally frustrating. This game was a perfect example of why. The Seattle Sounders weren't awful, heck they were pretty good for long stretches, but couldn't score and gave up a goal on a corner kick that probably should have never even happened.
