Jordan Morris scored twice in the Sounders’ surprising win over the Galaxy while Ola Kamara added two as well in the Crew’s victory over the Revolution.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Jordan Morris scored his 11th and 12th goals of his rookie season and the Seattle Sounders beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 4–2 on Sunday to snap an 11-game road winless streak in the series.
Seattle (11-13-5) remained in seventh place, three points behind rival Portland for the final playoff spot. Los Angeles (11-5-15) lost its first home game of the season and its first against the Sounders since 2009.
Morris gave the Sounders a 2–1 lead in the 63rd minute and scored again 10 minutes later. He outraced a defender down the right sideline and curled a shot with the outside of his right foot on a breakaway. In the 73rd, Morris settled a rebound and calmly scored with his left foot.
He moved into second place in MLS history for rookie scoring.
Robbie Keane opened the scoring in the 20th minute for Los Angeles when he headed home Sebastian Lletget's chipped cross and Keane scored on a penalty kick in the 85th. Landon Donovan entered as a sub in the 67th.
Seattle tied it in the 35th on Jelle Van Damme’s own goal. Chad Marshall elevated to head Andreas Ivanschitz’s corner kick and it deflected off Van Damme’s head. Osvaldo Alonso hammered a shot from distance in the 78th for a 4–1 lead.
CREW 2, REVOLUTION 0
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ola Kamara scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season and Columbus beat New England to keep its playoff hopes alive.
Columbus (7-11-11), which played in the 2015 MLS Cup, is ninth in the Eastern Conference, but only five points behind D.C. United for the final playoff spot. New England (9-13-9) is seventh, one point back.
In the 42nd minute, Kamara slid a shot through the legs of defender Darrius Barnes and it got past a diving Brad Knighton. Kamara added a penalty-kick goal in the 84th after he was nudged from behind by London Woodberry.
Kamara has scored five times in the last three games and leads all MLS newcomers for goals scored this season. He trails New York’s Bradley Wright-Phillips by five goals for the MLS Golden Boot.
Revolution forward Kei Kamara made his return to Mapfre Stadium after being traded from the Crew in May.
