Seattle Sounders 0, Montreal Impact 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
Any hope the Seattle Sounders had of securing some points at home vs. Montreal Impact didn't last long Saturday night. Kelvin Leerdam was sent off in the 40th minute after slapping Daniel Lovitz across the face, changing the game instantly. The Sounders were already without Clint Dempsey, who was serving his own one-game suspension from a red card in Seattle's last game, but going down to 10 men proved a bridge too far.
Ignacio Piatti and Jeisson Vargas linked up for the Impact in the match's only goal and, while the match was surprisingly close despite Montreal's man advantage, the result was what everyone expected. The Impact should perhaps thank goalkeeper Evan Bush for preserving their lead.
