SEATTLE — Second-half substitute Roger Levesque scored twice in the second half to give the Seattle Sounders a 4-2 win over the New York Red Bulls on Thursday night.

In a game that set the Sounders’ attendance record at 46,505, Levesque headed in a corner from Leo Gonzalez to snap a tie in the 67th minute on Thursday, then knocked the ball away from goalkeeper Greg Sutton and into the open net in the 78th.

The two goals for Levesque, who came on in the 60th minute, were his first of the season for the Sounders.

Seattle also got goals on corners from Erik Friberg in the 11th minute and Osvaldo Alonso in the 12th.
