Jordan Morris Continues Historic Goal-Scoring Run in Seattle Sounders’ Win Over LA Galaxy
Seattle Sounders’ Jordan Morris has added another chapter to his historic goal-scoring run, scoring in the 21st minute to help the team secure a 2-1 win over rivals LA Galaxy on Saturday in Carson, California.
Seattle, who now sit at 4-1-1 with 13 points, has extended their unbeaten streak against the Galaxy to 10 games, making them the first MLS team in history to have such a run against the Galaxy, who currently stand at 0-2-3 with 3 points.
During the match, Morris finished a cross on the run from teammate Leo Chu, netting his fifth goal in just two games, following his historic four-goal performance against Sporting Kansas City last week. Morris has scored 50 regular-season goals for Seattle and 60 goals across all competitions, making him the first-ever Sounders player to record five consecutive goals for his team.
Leo Chu also made his mark on the game, scoring Seattle’s second goal in the 35th minute and his first of the season. Chu’s assist was his fifth in two games, having had a hand in all five of Morris’ goals across the two matches.
The Galaxy made a comeback attempt in the second half, with Jalen Neal scoring a goal in the 63rd minute amidst a sustained Galaxy possession and pressure. Despite having more corner kicks and shots, the Galaxy couldn’t find the tying goal before time ran out. Seattle goalie Stefan Frei was forced to make seven saves, including a big stop on the final play of the match.
The Sounders have cemented their position as one of the top teams in the MLS with their latest win over the Galaxy, and fans are eager to see if Morris can continue his historic goal-scoring run in their next match.
