SEATTLE – Fredy Montero scored off a long kick downfield from goalkeeper Kasey Keller early in the 64th minute on Sunday night to help the Seattle Sounder extend their MLS unbeaten streak to five games with a 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo.
The Sounders (8-8-4, 28 points) have gone 4-0-1 since a 3-1 loss at Los Angeles on July 4th and have climbed into fourth place in the Western Conference.
The Dynamo (5-9-5, 20 points) saw its winless streak extended to nine games (0-4-5), the longest such dry spell since the club relocated from San Jose after the 2005 season. Houston has not won since a 2-0 decision at home against D.C. United on May 22.
In addition to his first-ever point in MLS play, Keller picked up his seventh shutout of the season.
