After a chippy start to the second half, Seattle would answer in the 69th minute. Obafemi Martins passed to Marco Pappa who made two moves around the defense and found the back of the net to tie the score 1-1.

Just as the referee held up the sign stating 3 minutes of extra time, Barrett chipped in a Clint Dempsey shot to give the Seattle Sounders a 2-1 win.
