Sun., May 1, 2011, midnight

Brad Evans scored twice in the second half and set up Alvaro Fernandez’s (at right in photo) first-half goal in the host Seattle Sounders’ 3-0 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night. Seattle won consecutive games for the first time this season and is 3-0-3 in its last six games and 3-2-3 overall. Toronto (1-3-4) is winless in six games, going 0-2-4 since a 2-0 home win over Portland on March 26. Goalkeeper Kasey Keller had his second straight shutout. On a quick counterattack in the 52nd minute, Evans took a through ball from Fredy Montero (at left in photo) down the right side, took it just inside the box and sent a shot off of goalkeeper Stefan Frei’s hands into the left corner. Evans converted a penalty kick on a handball call in the 75th minute for his third goal of the season.
