SEATTLE (AP) --- Kelvin Leerdam and Harry Shipp scored in a two-minute span
midway through the second half as the Seattle Sounders rallied from a two-goal
deficit to tie the San Jose Earthquakes 2-2 Wednesday night.
Shea Salinas scored in the 34th and 53rd minute for San Jose (2-5-1), which now
has a result in three of its last four games after a 0-4 start.
The Sounders (5-1-2), routed 4-1 at Los Angeles FC on Sunday for their first
loss of the season, got on the board in the 65th minute. Nicolas Lodeiro sent a
corner kick from the left side into the penalty area. Kim Kee-hee flicked it
toward the center of the box, and Leerdam's diving header went into the back
right side for his third goal of the year.
Shipp tied it less than two minutes later. Lodeiro received a throw-in on the
left side and passed it across the box. Shipp, playing 12 yards in front of the
net, settled it and threaded a shot around two players and into the back right
corner for his second of the season.
Salinas' two goals, the first of which was deflected in off goalkeeper Stefan
Frei's outstretched left hand, and the second of which was into a wide-open net
from 8 yards in front, were his third and fourth of the year.
