Preview

One-time pitched cup foes, Seattle Sounders FC and the Houston Dynamo will meet for the only time this season when
the clubs face off Sunday evening at CenturyLink Field before an ESPN2 audience. Sounders FC have lost back-toback
games for the first time this season and now no longer lead the MLS overall table, following their 1-0 defeat at San
Jose last weekend. The Dynamo put an end to their eight-game winless run last weekend, leaving it very late before
getting the game's only goal in a win against D.C. United at BBVA Compass Stadium.
