White carries Sounders to MLS victory over Chicago

SEATTLE – O’Brian White scored his second goal in two games and set up another to give the Seattle Sounders their first Major League Soccer win of the season, 2-1 over the Chicago Fire on Saturday.

Steve Zakuani scored the go-ahead goal in the 25th minute after Diego Chaves tied it for Chicago.

The Fire are 0-3-2 against the Sounders since Seattle joined the league in 2009.

Seattle got on the board first early in the seventh minute when Mauro Rosales crossed a target ball from the right side into the penalty area, and White went up for a header from 16 yards away that sailed into the upper-right corner.
