SEATTLE -- With the match lurching forward in frustrating fashion, the Seattle Sounders needed a breakthrough. Clint Dempsey will get the credit for the goal. Harry Shipp and Will Bruin at least got assists. But the hardest, and probably the most important, work was supplied by Cristian Roldan.

SEATTLE Maybe a loss was just what the Seattle Sounders needed, the slap to the face required to start playing with the urgency demanded by a tight Western Conference playoff race.

Coming off a loss that snapped a 13-game unbeaten streak but also extended a five-game winless stretch, the Sounders played with energy and panache from the start on Wednesday night, running around and passing through the first-place Vancouver Whitecaps, romping to a 3-0 victory in front of 41,868 at Century Link Field.

It was Van Damme's second yellow of the night. Seattle could not take advantage of the weakened LA Galaxy, though, and settled for a 0-0 draw.

Only Osvaldo Alonso is a likely absence as Nicolas Lodeiro returns from suspension and Oniel Fisher, Clint Dempsey, and Jordan Morris return from the Gold Cup.

A great pass by Lodeiro and an even better finish by Bruin

Wednesday's match between the Seattle Sounders and Orlando City was pretty even in the opening 20 minutes, but it was the home side that struck first at CenturyLink Field. Nicolas Lodeiro put in a killer ball from left midfield, and Will Bruin took advantage of a defensive slip by Jonathan Spector to grab the ball and fire it past Joe Bendik to make it 1-0 to Seattle in the 18th minute.

Nick Rimando is amazing and so is science.

In the sixth minute Nicolas Lodeiro nearly opened the scoring for the Seattle Sounders in Saturday's match against Real Salt Lake. He had a free kick from a horrible angle about 12 yards from the endline and wide of the 18. Like any confident goalscorer he shot at the near post side of the wall, forcing a brilliant save by Nick Rimando.

Will Bruin turned a nearly certain road loss into an incredible road draw. His goal in the 94th minute earned the Seattle Sounders their first point of 2016, securing a 2-2 draw. Seattle has yet to lead on the young year, has given up two goals before scoring in both games, and yet magic clearly exists.
