August was a pretty amazing month for the Sounders. It started with a 2-0 win over FC San Francisco of Panama to get into CONCACAF Champions League group play and concluded Tuesday with a 1-0 win over FC Dallas to advance to the U.S. Open Cup final.
In between there was a 2-1 win that gave Sporting Kansas City its first loss in its new stadium, a 4-1 rout of Comuniciaciones, a 1-0 win at Dallas, a 1-0 win at Monterrey, a 6-2 mauling of Columbus. The only imperfection was a scoreless draw against Chivas USA.
Much credit to
