Match report from Sounders FC:

Lamar Neagle scored and assisted and Pat Noonan and Michael Tetteh tallied goals as Seattle Sounders FC defeated the Portland Timbers, 3-2, in a MLS Reserve League match on Sunday afternoon at Starfire Sports Stadium.

Sounders FC (3-0-0) remain undefeated in Reserve League play while Portland (1-1-0) lost for the first time.

Neagle staked Seattle to a lead with a strike in the 44th minute. He played a ball into the box from the right side that bounced through a crowd and spun inside the far post.

Neagle started the second scoring sequence as well. In the 57th minute he swung a cross into the box that Noonan headed past Timbers keeper Adin Brown from close range.

Rookie Michael Tetteh extended the lead in the 74th minute. Tetteh worked a give-and-go with second-half substitute Roger Levesque and slotted a left-footed shot past Brown from 12 yards.

David Horst pulled Portland a goal back in the 68th minute. Bim Ogunyemi headed a free kick from Rodrigo Lopez that Terry Boss stopped. Horst was able to knock in the rebound from the ground.

Portland scored a late goal in second-half stoppage time when a ball fell to Ogunyemi at the top of the box and he blasted it just under the crossbar and into the back of the net.

David Estrada tested Portland early when he pounded a shot from 20 yards in the 9th minute that Brown blocked.

Tetteh had another scoring opportunity in the 11th minute when he weaved through the center of the field but his attempt from 16 yards missed just wide right.

Neagle and Noonan nearly combined in the first half when Neagle swung a cross into the box from the right wing that Noonan fired just wide from 12 yards out.

Neagle and Tetteh co-lead Sounders FC in MLS Reserve League scoring with two goals. Neagle drew and converted a penalty in last week's win over Chivas USA and Tetteh scored the winner at San Jose.

The sides were even on shots with 10. Terry Boss made five saves and Brown made four.
