Forward Fredy Montero put himself on the Major League Soccer radar as a force to be reckoned with, scoring two goals and assisting on a third. Goalkeeper Kasey Keller made two sterling saves, the only clear shots on goal he faced all night, so effective was Sounders FC's defense. And everyone basked in the din and palpable energy of a buzzing sellout crowd at Qwest Field.
The dream comes true — big-time soccer returns to Seattle.
Portland will join Major League Soccer in 2011 along with Vancouver, British Columbia, as the league expands to 18 teams.
Huskies, Sounders FC almost enough to make us forget Seattle's disastrous 2008 sports year.
