Sounders Blank Real Salt Lake, 4-0

Posted:

SEATTLE (AP) - Marco Pappa, Chad Barrett and Obafemi Martins each scored second-half goals and the Seattle Sounders ended Real Salt Lake's season-opening 12-game unbeaten streak with a 4-0 victory on Saturday in a game between the two top teams in Major League Soccer.

Gonzalo Pineda also scored on a first-half penalty kick for the Sounders (9-3-2). Pappa's goal was his first of the season, and Barrett scored for the second straight game, giving him three goals for the year. Martins tallied his sixth.

While Seattle won its league-high fifth straight home match, Salt Lake (6-1-6) fell for the first time, missing a chance to set an MLS record for longest unbeaten streak to start the year.

Los Angeles (12-0 in 1996 and 10-0-2 in 2010) and Kansas City (10-0-2 in 2000) previously had 12-game season-opening undefeated streaks.
