FC Dallas and the Seattle Sounders combined to score three goals in a seven-minute span late in Sunday’s MLS Western Conference semifinal. 

Seattle led 2–1 after the first leg and the second leg was scoreless until Dallas’s Tesho Akindele scored on a header in the 84th minute.

If that score had held, Dallas would have advanced on the away goals tiebreaker, but Chad Marshall scored for Seattle in the 90th minute, putting the Sounders back ahead on aggregate.

A Dallas goal by Walker Zimmerman in the first minute of added time forced the game to go to extra time, because the teams were tied on aggregate and away goals. 

FC Dallas won on penalty kicks after a scoreless extra period and will face the Portland Timbers in the Western Conference final.
