Match report from the Seattle Sounders:
The Seattle Sounders and the Calgary Storm played to a 1-1 draw
Sunday afternoon at Foothills Park in Calgary. It was Seattle's sixth overtime match in
their last seven matches.
The Sounders (22 points from 12 matches) and Storm (14 points from 13 matches) were originally scheduled to play the match 10 May but it was postponed because of snow. Instead of snowflakes the two teams played the match in soggy conditions and temperatures in the low 40s. It rained heavily for two hours before the opening kick but the rain abated by game time.
Seattle fell behind in the 38th minute when Calgary's Nik Zuniga blasted a ball past Sounders goalkeeper Rich Cullen from 15 yards left of the Seattle goal. Cullen got his body on the ball but couldn't control it as it slid under him and across the goal line.
Seattle tied the match at 1-1 in the 53rd minute on Andrew Gregor's goal, assisted by Marco Velez. Both of Gregor's goals this season have come in Calgary against the Storm. Gregor left the match in the second half after injuring his leg.
