Sounders Beat Olimpia 2-1 in CONCACAF Champions League
SEATTLE (AP) — Brad Evans converted a penalty kick 6 1/2 minutes into second-half stoppage time to give the Seattle Sounders a 2-1 comeback victory over Olimpia of Honduras in a CONCACAF Champions League game Wednesday night.
The penalty kick was awarded when Sounders defender Dylan Remick was taken down just inside the penalty area by Arnold Peralta. Evans drove his shot into the right side, with goalkeeper Noel Vallarda going the opposite way.
The final whistle came immediately after Olimpia kicked off following the goal.
Erik Friberg tied it for Seattle on a header in the 90th minute.
Before scoring, the Sounders had had six near-misses, including two shots off the post.
Alberth Ellis scored for Olimpia in the fifth minute.
Seattle (1-0-1) took the lead in the three-team group. Vancouver (0-0-1) is second, and Olimpia (0-1-0) third.
