Anyway, last week the Sounders played Santa Tecla, the El Salvadorian top club, in El Salvador, and tonight was the second of the home and away matches.
The score is an aggregate of the two matches, and the Sounders lost the first round 2-1, so they had some catching up to do.
Today was a beautiful day, sunny, dry, and the temps reached 50 by late in the afternoon. But when the sun goes down, it gets cold quickly. We bundled up in multiple layers to go to the stadium tonight.
Quite a few soccer fans made it out on a chilly work week night. The supporters group, ECS, presented an awesome overhead, "Climb Higher"
The game was close, and scoreless at the half, but then the Sounders broke it open and won 4-0. They will move on to the quarter finals. We were comfy in our layers of warm clothes and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
A full moon rose over the stadium as we made our way to the train. They say there might be an inch of snow in the morning. We'll see.
