MLS Standings
A draw between Seattle and RSL means an SKC win on Sunday puts them in 4th place (if Portland doesn’t beat Vancouver by more than we beat SJ... fricken MLS).

Instant Replay - Benny earned penalty against RSL
It was an absolute stonewall penalty that went uncalled. Had it been called and converted, SKC would already be sitting in 4th place.

He refused to be in the lineup after being told he wouldn’t start. But the club says the player is happy and will do whatever he is asked to help the team.
