Nicolas Lodeiro’s late goal helps Sounders extend streak, tie Dynamo
Wed., Aug. 24, 2016
FRISCO, Texas – Nicolas Lodeiro scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time and the Seattle Sounders tied the Houston Dynamo 1-1 on Wednesday night to extend their unbeaten streak to five games.
Lodeiro blasted a left-footer from near the spot, off a feed from Joevin Jones, just inside the right post. Lodeiro has two goals and four assists – and the Sounders are 3-0-2 – since signing with the club July 27.
Andrew Wenger put a rising, right-footer into the top-left corner to give Houston a 1-0 lead in the 75th.
The Sounders missed two chances to clear and Ricardo Clark tapped a feed – after Seattle (9-12-4) blocked two other Dynamo shots – to Wenger on the right side of the box.
Houston (5-10-10) outshot the Sounders 22-6.
After a five-game winless streak, the Dynamo are unbeaten in their last three.
