Today introduced another first for the expansion Seattle Sounders FC. With a hard-fought win against perennial favorite D.C. United at RFK Stadium, the Sounders bring home the U.S. Open Cup trophy. Not the greatest accomplishment that a team can win but definitely says something about this up and coming Seattle team.
The Sounders return to regular season play on September 12th when they return to RFK Stadium to play D.C. United again, but this time it is to battle for playoff position with the Seattle Sounders FC sitting 4 points out of an Automatic-Bid. Currently they are in first place for an At-Large bid to the playoffs but an Automatic-Bid would be so much better.
