Sounders Get Away Goal In 1-1 Tie With FC Dallas

Osvaldo Alonso scored in the 54th minute, and the Seattle Sounders tied FC Dallas 1-1 in the first leg of Major League Soccer's Western Conference semifinals on Sunday night. FC Dallas opened the scoring when Michel converted a penalty kick in the 34th. Goaltender Stefan Frei guessed the right way, but Michel kicked it into the right corner. Andres Escobar drew the penalty on Seattle midfielder Marco Pappa's careless challenge. Pappa redeemed himself with a free kick that set up Alonso's tying goal. Pappa's placement kept goalkeeper Raul Fernandez on his line and gave Alonso the room to head it in. Fabian Castillo nearly put Dallas in front in the 90th minute with a 40-yard run and blast that Frei deflected over the goal. The Sounders host the second leg of the total-goals series on Nov. 10.
