SEATTLE (AP) — Robbie Keane scored in the 15th minute, leading the Los Angeles Galaxy to a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.
It was Keane’s sixth goal of the season for the Galaxy (7-3-8, 29 points), who were outshot 22-7, but still won their second straight after a seven-game winless streak.
The goal came on a counterattack. Defender Dave Romney gained possession on the L.A. side of midfield and sent a long through ball down the left wing. Gyasi Zardes caught up with it and took it into the penalty area, crossing it toward the middle. Keane ran onto it and drove it past goalkeeper Stefan Frei.
The Sounders (5-10-2, 17 points) are winless in their last four games. Sounders forward Clint Dempsey returned after missing five games while playing for the U.S. national team in Copa America.
