The Seattle Sounders needed 118 minutes to escape with a 1-0 win over Arizona Sahuaros in the 105-degree heat of the Valley of the Sun last night and advance to the second round of the U.S. Open Cup.
The lone goal came as Kenji Treschuk scored unassisted after a missed clearance.
Seattle’s returns to Cup action June 24 for a home game against Hollywood United, who beat the Portland Timbers, 3-2, on Tuesday.
The Sounders next game comes Thursday at Starfire Sports Complex, a friendly against Juventus Primavera.
Details on all this are available at the Sounders’ website.
