Whitecaps Drop More Points

Sounders Midseason Report

It’s a weekend of meaningless international friendlies in MLS, and the Sounders are off until a big “Monday Night Football” showdown with the LA Galaxy, so it seems like a good time for a midseason progress report.

Grabbing a point at Rio Tinto is an impressive feat for any team in this […]
