Revolution Vs. Sounders Score Update: Johnson Makes It Two As Seattle Takes A 2-1 Lead

For the New England Revolution, a match that seemed to be proceeding in hand has now become a game they have to chase, as the Seattle Sounders have taken a 2-1 lead at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night. Eddie Johnson put away his second of the night to give the Sounders their first lead of the match in the 35th minute.

Marc Burch apparently got free of Florian Lechner down the left flank and lofted in a dangerous cross to the far post. Johnson was the only target in the area, but he was the only one needed as he rose above A.J. Soares to head the ball down into the corner of the net. Matt Reis appeared to have made a poor decision to come out for the cross and was left flapping at the ball as Soares attempted to get the height required to challenge Johnson, while traveling backwards.
