Seattle turn Western Conference play-off race into a fight to the death

MLS: Toronto FC at Philadelphia Union

They wasted a lot of time this season, but boy, the Seattle Sounders are making up for it. Sunday’s Cascadia Cup win over the Portland Timbers means that since firing Sigi Schmid the CenturyLink Field side have drawn one and won three of their four league matches, lifting them into play-off contention in the West. A race that looked to have settled into a rhythm just a few weeks back is now a chaotic hot-mess. Seattle haven’t just lit the fuse, they’ve sparked a raging furnace.
