That result keeps the Sounders atop Major League Soccer: 60 points -- same as LA -- but holding the tie-breaker of 19 wins. That means Seattle wins Supporters Shield with split (or better) over it's home-and-away regular-season ending pair against LA. The first of those comes one week from today at StubHub Center.
Seattle can clinch the Shield with a win that day. The Galaxy cannot. Instead, LA must get at least four points out of its next two matches.
The Sounders are off today. But come 4 p.m., they'll probably be watching along with a lot of their supporters as the LA Galaxy visits FC Dallas. The game will be shown on ESPN2.
Never miss a local story.
The Galaxy goes into the match even with Seattle in the MLS points race: 60 each, with the tie-breaker favoring the Sounders. This is LA's game in hand.
The meaning of the game to the Sounders was the topic of our TNT story from today's paper.
