SEATTLE - Roger Levesque cleaned up the ricochet of Fredy Montero's free kick late in the first half, Pat Noonan and Michael Seamon both scored midway through the second half and the Seattle Sounders FC beat Argentina's Boca Juniors 3-0 in an exhibition match Wednesday.

Having scored just two home goals since a 2-0 season opening win over expansion Philadelphia, the Sounders were hoping the exhibition with the one-time South American powers might be an opportunity to solve some of their offensive woes before returning to MLS play on Saturday at Colorado.

Playing a mixture of regular starters and youngsters needing playing time, Seattle dominated possession and scoring chances against a Boca Juniors squad filled with youth and minus three players preparing for the World Cup.
