This is an example of a game where the scoreline doesn't really tell the whole story. The Sounders were under a lot of pressure in the first half and could have given up more than one goal, but a combination of Stefan Frei's saves and bad finishing from LA kept it close long enough for Seattle to turn on the jets later on.

The Seattle Sounders are not out of the woods. Not yet and not by a long shot. But with six games left in the 2016 season, a path to the playoffs has become clear. The Sounders are going to need to win their final three home games and probably pick up a couple more points on the road.

That won't guarantee them a spot in the playoffs, but given that the Portland Timbers and Sporting Kansas City only have one home game apiece and that they've been nothing short of awful on the road, the Sounders' path looks reasonable enough.

In his past three games alone, Lodeiro's late goals are the only thing sitting between the Sounders going pointless and keeping their postseason hopes alive with a pair of road points.
