(Seattle) Gustav Svensson scored from a corner kick in the dying moments of the game and the Seattle Sounders beat Minnesota United 3-2 on Monday night to advance to the MLS final.
The Sounders scored three goals in the final 15 minutes of regulation and stoppage time to win the Western Conference title for the fourth time in five years.
The Seattle squad will now travel to Columbus to face the Crew in the MLS Cup Final, which takes place on Saturday.
Will Bruin began the ascent by touching the target at the 75 th minute, reducing the deficit to 2-1 and setting the table at times rather crazy.
Raul Ruidiaz took advantage of a favorable leap from a corner kick and beat goaltender Dayne St. Clair to allow the Sounders to level the score just before the end of regular time.
The Sounders continued to apply pressure and they fell a few inches away from the lead when Ruidiaz saw his shot hit the outside of the post. Svensson played the heroes by climbing over a roofer to redirect the last corner kick of the game.
The Sounders are the defending MLS Cup champions, which they won with a 3-1 win over Toronto FC just over a year ago.
