Ruidíaz Scores From Long Range, Sounders Beat Austin FC 1-0
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Raúl Ruidíaz scored a spectacular goal from 40 yards out midway through the second half and the short-handed Seattle Sounders beat expansion Austin FC 1-0. Ruidiaz came on as a second-half substitute and quickly netted one of the top goals of the season — his MLS-leading 11th of the season — catching goalkeeper Brad Stuver off his line and curling a shot for his 11th goal of the season. Obed Vargas became the third-youngest player in MLS history to appear in a match, playing 77 minutes for Seattle at 15 years, 351 days. Only Freddy Adu and Alphonso Davies made younger debuts in league history.
