Match report from Sounders FC:

Pat Noonan scored twice and Lamar Neagle added another goal as Seattle Sounders FC erupted for three early goals before settling for a 3-3 draw with Chivas USA in their final MLS Reserve League match on Sunday at The Home Depot Center's practice field.

Seattle had clinched the West Division with three games remaining and finished the season with a record of 8-1-1.

Michael Seamon assisted on two Sounders FC goals in the first four minutes. Seamon dispossessed an opponent and promptly found Noonan lurking for a header at the far post for the opener. Two minutes later Neagle blasted his team-leading fifth goal of the season, doubling the lead. A cross from Michael Tetteh to Noonan made it 3-nil after 14 minutes.

However the Goats (3-3-4) pulled back two goals before the break. In the 34th minute Estupiņan netted his fifth goal in Reserve League play off a corner kick. U18 academy player Ben Spencer struck in the 42nd minute and Greg Vanney's free kick in the 88th minute enabled Chivas to split the points and finish third in the West
