Stoppage-time goal gives Sounders draw at Union

Apr 16, 2011 - 10:21 PM Chester, PA (Sports Network) - Alvaro Fernandez scored in stoppage time and Seattle Sounders FC tied the Philadelphia Union, 1-1, on Saturday in steady rain at PPL Park in Major League Soccer.

Carlos Ruiz scored in the first half for Philadelphia (3-1-1), which allowed just its second goal in five matches this season. Seattle (1-2-3), which lost its first two games of the season, extended its unbeaten streak to four.

The Union took the lead 13 minutes before halftime when Ruiz drove a free kick into the area that deflected off Seattle's Erik Friberg and into the left side of the net past Sounders goalie Kasey Keller.

Philadelphia, which posted 1-0 shutouts in its three wins, made the Ruiz goal stand until stoppage time, when Fredy Montero's short cross from the left side of the area found Fernandez, who headed off the right post and in.

Seattle visits the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids on Friday in its next game. Philadelphia hosts the San Jose Earthquakes on April 30 in its next match.
