The first leg of MLS playoffs always tends to be a tense venture and last night’s match up between Seattle and Salt Lake was no exception. Both teams displayed expert defensive prowess and as a result the match ended in a 0-0 draw. But the game was by no means void of action.
The action got off to a fast start in the 23rd minute as Nate Grabavoy dashed towards the top of Seattle’s eighteen yard box where he met an onrushing Michael Gspurning who made a spectacular sliding save. Both keepers were kept busy as the Sounders peppered Salt Lake’s Nick Rimando with shot after shot. Rimando finished the match with one of the most sound performances by a keeper in MLS this season, and Gspurning matched him save for save.no comments
