SEATTLE — Chad Barrett scored 30 seconds into second-half stoppage time to give the Seattle Sounders a 2-1 comeback victory over the Red Bulls on Sunday.
Lloyd Sam scored in the 36th minute – his fourth goal of the season – to give the Red Bulls (4-3-5) the lead, but the Sounders’ Marco Pappa maneuvered around defender Chris Duvall to tie the score in the 69th minute with a 12-yard shot from the left side, his second goal in two games.
Defender Tyrone Mears helped set up the decisive goal for Seattle (8-3-2) when, playing near the goal line, he floated a ball across the penalty area. Clint Dempsey got a foot on it and sent it toward the far post, where an unmarked Barrett was waiting. He tipped the ball in off his right toe, his third goal this season.
