Sounder coach Sigi Schmid says his team obviously noticed the parallel between its situation this weekend and what San Jose accomplished last night with its come-from-a-goal-down-on-the-road-advancement at New York last night.
“Obviously San Jose went into a place where nobody expected them to win," Schmid said this morning. "For sure New York, I think, had more of the game, more of the game territorially. But if you finish your chances well, you get an early goal, helps your momentum, great individual goal by [Bobby] Convey on the second goal where he beat Tim Ream and then (Chris) Wondolowski off a great service. Even though they got dominated in possession and all those stats favored New York, it’s all about finishing goals. It certainly shows us that it’s very, very possible.”
