Match report from the Sounders:
Andrew Gregor scored on a set play and the Seattle Sounders defeated Team Calgary 1-0 in A-League action Thursday at Foothills Park in Calgary. The Sounders, with 47-points, can take another step toward clinching one of the two Pacific Division playoff spots when they host Indiana Sunday.
Seattle had beaten Team Calgary by a combined 12-0 in their last two meetings at Seahawks Stadium, but in two previous matches in Calgary the Sounders had a win and a draw from just two goals.
After a scoreless first half Seattle finally broke the deadlock on Gregor's free kick in the 65th minute. Sounders midfielder Alex Bengard was fouled hard five yards outside the penalty box. He stayed on the turf for a few minutes then hobbled off to the sideline. When play resumed Gregor lined the direct free kick off his left foot from 23 yards out and just inside the left post past Team Calgary goalkeeper David Wiebenga. The goal was Gregor's sixth of the season.
