The Seattle Sounders are atop Group D with a resounding victory on Mexican soil Monday night against the reigning CONCACAF Champions League winners CG Monterrey.

Alvaro Fernandez took a pass from Servando Carrasco and one-touched the ball into the upper corner for the first and only goal of the match. The Sounders won 1-0 and are now in first place in Group D with six points through the first two rounds.

Terry Boss had four saves in goal for the Sounders, and the defense a whole took on 17 shots from Monterrey.

Seattle returns to the States to play Columbus on Saturday before hosting FC Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup semifinals next Tuesday.
