Sounders Insider

Halftime: Sounders up 2-0 in Toronto

45th minute: Steve Zakuani finishes on a ball that seemed to roll through the box for quite a while.

Big goal because Toronto had been taking control of play a bit.

The Sounders are well over 200 minutes into their season without giving up a goal.

12th minute (or so): Sounders move ahead 1-0 on the first MLS goal by Freddie Ljungberg -- and it was a thing of beauty. Ljungberg got the ball in space, ran up the middle, sent a short pass to Nate Jaqua, who returned it to Ljungberg, who finished.

It's a fair result so far, with Sounders dominating play, although Toronto has had a couple of quick-developing chances.

Pregame: The starting lineup are out for the Sounders' 1 p.m. game at Tornoto. The most interesting twist is coach Sigi Schmid swapping Freddie for Fredy -- that is Freddie Ljungberg getting his first MLS start at forward in place of Fredy Montero, who remains in Seattle for whatever reason you choose to believe.

By the way, it looks crazy windy up there today (game is on FSC and CBC). And in a story I wrote this week, Schmid said wind is the weather condition that most affects a soccer match.
