Morris scores twice, leads Sounders past Los Angeles FC

August 31, 2020 GMT

SEATTLE (AP) — Jordan Morris scored two goals less than a minute apart early in the second half, and Seattle rolled past Los Angeles FC 3-1 on Sunday night in the Sounders first home match in 5½ months.

Playing in an eerily empty CenturyLink Field, Morris scored 59 seconds apart in the opening moments of the second half as Seattle gained a bit of revenge after LAFC’s 4-1 thumping of the Sounders during the MLS is Back tournament in Florida.

Raúl Ruidíaz scored in the first half with a stunning 35-yard left-footed shot.

Diego Rossi scored in the 60th minute but LAFC lost consecutive matches for the first time since the 2018 season.
