Revolution Vs. Sounders: Eddie Johnson Answers Back For Seattle, Knots Score at 1-1

The New England Revolution took an early lead in their match against the Seattle Sounders, but the Rave Green didn't waste any time giving their reply. Eddie Johnson headed home a dangerous Mauro Rosales cross to tie the scores up at one apiece.

Rosales took advantage of a mistake by Florian Lechner, dispossessing the veteran right back in the Revs own third. The Argentinian then floated in a diagonal cross to Johnson, who leaped into the stratosphere and nodded the ball home past a helpless Matt Reis.

Sounders fans will perhaps feel the goal has re-established equilibrium in the match after the Revs were awarded the first goal despite strong indications of offside. Regardless, the match has been fairly open, with chances for both sides. New England does seem to have the upper hand in possession and chances created, with several dangerous Chris Tierney deliveries and Blake Brettschneider opportunities throughout the first half.
