Sounders drop a big one

The Sounders served as first blood for the Philadelphia Union in the home-opener of their brand new stadium. It was tied 1-1 last and then Seattle decided to take a big, steamy crap.

CHESTER, Pa. (AP)-- Fred scored the go-ahead goal in the 79th minute to help the Philadelphia Union open their new stadium with a 3-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.

Sebastien Le Toux, who assisted on the Brazilian's goal, scored on a penalty in the 55th for his team-leading sixth goal. Seattle's Tyrone Marshall took down Alejandro Moreno in the box.

Five minutes later, the Sounders were also awarded a penalty, but Noonan's shot was saved by Chris Seitz.

Rookie Danny Mwanga added a goal in the 85th minute to seal the win at $122 million PPL Park, where some of the crowd of 18,755 arrived four hours before the game.

The Sounders are second to last in the conference standings and we're just par for the course with Seattle sports at the moment right now.
