Sounders win first leg of Western Conference semifinals 3-0 over FC Dallas
SEATTLE -- Nicolas Lodeiro scored twice and Nelson Valdez added a goal — all in an 8-minute span early in the second half— and the Seattle Sounders rolled past FC Dallas 3-0 on Sunday night in the first leg of the MLS Western Conference semifinals. Dallas, winner of the Supporters Shield with the best regular-season record, now must score at least three times when the teams play the second leg in Texas next Sunday to keep its season alive.
