Thompson Expected To Get Start At RB For Huskies

Shaq Thompson's performance as a running back for Washington against Colorado didn't get him a Pac-12 player of the week nod. It was good enough that Thompson is expected to get a third straight start at running back when the Huskies host No. 18 UCLA on Saturday. But it sounds like Thompson won't be limited to just one side of the ball against the Bruins. Washington coach Chris Petersen said Thompson would play some on defense after being strictly an offensive player the past two weeks. Thompson ran for 174 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries against Colorado. It was a needed bounce-back win for the Huskies (6-3, 2-3 Pac-12), who achieved bowl eligibility with the win after dropping their previous two games. SEATTLE (AP) – November 4, 2014

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.
