Late Goals by Morris and Jones Give Sounders 2-0 Over DC
WASHINGTON (AP) — Jordan Morris and Joevin Jones scored 4 minutes apart late in the second half and the Seattle Sounders beat D.C. United 2-0 on Wednesday night to end a three-game losing streak.
The Sounders (5-6-1) had only scored 10 goals in 11 games, including one goal in three losses since a 2-0 win on May 7th. D.C. United has not scored against Seattle in their last six meetings, going 0-5-1.
Both teams were without two players preparing for Copa America with their national team, including Seattle's Clint Dempsey and D.C.'s Steve Birnbaum with the U.S. team.
