“Sounders FC matched a team-record Thursday night, scoring four goals behind a Roger Levesque brace on the way to a 4-2 victory over the New York Red Bulls on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field…..After subbing in for Mike Fucito in the 58th minute, Levesque was able to score his first two goals of the season, regaining Seattle’s lead and sealing the victory. ….New York had fought back from an early 2-nil deficit, equalizing in the 58th minute when Jan Gunnar Solli sent a cross in from the right side and Seattle defender Zach Scott inadvertently deflected it over Kasey Keller’s head for an own-goal….The Rave Green got off to a fast start, scoring the fastest two goals in club history, in addition to scoring the quickest back-to-back goals.  In the 11th minute, Erik Friberg controlled a deflected corner at the top of the box and bent it around several defenders and into the right corner of the net for his first MLS goal.”
