Jordan Morris made his MLS debut for Seattle on Sunday however it was unfortunately overshadowed by a Sounders red card that left them down a man for over half the match.
Morris had an amazing opportunity in the eighth minute to score after Andreas Ivanschitz played a lovely through ball just outside the 18, however, Morris woefully sent it sailing over the crossbar.
Six minutes later Tim Melia made an outstanding save on Clint Dempsey’s free kick that looked destined for the upper 90. On the ensuing corner kick, Seattle was again denied, this time by the crossbar as Chad Marshall’s header bounced back into play. The Sounders were creating all the chances to open the match and looked to be well on their way to victory until the 41st minute when Oniel Fisher received a straight red for a flying studs-up challenge.
Minutes into the second half, Seattle were again looking like the stronger side after Ivanschitz had his strike saved by a diving Melia.
The scoring breakthrough happened in the 73rd as debutant Nuno Coelho got a little bit of luck from about 25 yards out as the ball somehow stayed underneath Seattle keeper Stefan Frei.
That was the only goal scored in the match and Sporting KC walked out of Century Link Field victorious over Seattle.
Next up for Seattle is a trip to Real Salt Lake while Sporting KC will head home to Sporting Park to face the Vancouver Whitecaps.
