Seattle (AP) — Xavier Arreaga and Brad Smith scored goals in the second half, while MLS leader Seattle Sounders beat Los Angeles FC 2-0 on Sunday night.
Arreaga started scoring in the 57th minute and redirected João Paulo’s corner inside the right post with a header. This was Arreaga’s first career goal at the Sounders (5-0-1).
Carlos Vela of the 2019 MLS MVP made his second appearance of the season and took the place in the 70th minute, giving LAFC (1-2-2) a potential boost to a tie goal. However, Smith defeated Seattle 2-0 three minutes later, leading Alex Roldan’s cross home.
Smith missed the goal with the highest scoring chance in the first half and shot a wide open shot to the left of the goal 12 yards away.
