I am as well, and we are underway from Centurylink Field in Seattle, Washington, and who will be crowned the third time in the last four years.
These two teams that met each other, they each won one who will win went round three.
So Seattle will take this one down field over the top of the defense.
It's cleared out of danger by Toronto.
Getting it out now near the sideline in a foul will be called on.
Was a foul called on Lodeiro? Or it is a throne or a fell? Either way, thank you, Dave, for joining the broadcast.
What is going on? Well, come in.
I can't even hear the referee's whistle because it's so loud out there.
Yes, a foul was called So Toronto take the free kick.
At least this game is on ABC and naughty on ESPN News.
Avery? Yes, exactly.
Yeah, it's It's awesome how this game is on ABC up 100%.
It was kind of disappointing to see those earlier rounds on ESPN News, but, hey, now it's unless cup they pull on ABC.
It's a pack Centurylink Stadium 70,000 plus in attendance for this one, and this will be played out of bounds by Omar Gonzalez, a Seattle throwing on the far side.
This will now be put out of play by moving GE, another throwing for the Sounders just less than two minutes in thanks so much everyone for joining me.
It's a Super Bowl type atmosphere in the state of Washington, just the whole lead up to this game.
You know, it's it's a city with a lot of soccer history.
They love their MLS team in the Sounders, and you know this is a huge occasion for them because the last two times these these ah teams met in MLS Cup.
Both of those games were in Toronto, now Seattle with a chance to host, and they're taking advantage of that home field advantage. Now.
Seattle will win a corner kick out of this.
The cross engine from Smith.
It was blocked in the first corner kick of the game.
What can Seattle make of it? This game, starting shortly after noon, Pacific time.
That's the local time in Seattle, so the corner kick will be taken by Lodeiro.
But no problem for Toronto.
They take it the other way.
You'd be surprised if any Toronto fans show up because Toronto is Lily one million miles away from Seattle.
Behind how their eye.
They actually showed There's a There's a pretty good amount considering, like you said, that they're so far away.
Ah, good amount of Toronto fans.
They showed a section with the Toronto FC fence, and there's a good amount.
Not even not even kidding about that.
They showed it right in the free game a few minutes before kickoff.
And yeah, I'm impressed by I don't know the exact number, but it's probably around 1000.
Maybe more Toronto fans that made the trek out there.
There's Coca Cola Senate, and I had no idea.
I didn't have any idea about that, either.
All right, this will be played out.
Why? To Endo Endo has it.
You'll now play it out wide.
Tow Roo roo sends in the cross down low the shot from outside the box save Stephan Fry.
So Fry makes the first save of the game.
No problem dealing with that one.
Thank you for the tip, Dave.
I appreciate that a lot.
Thank you very much.
You just saw it on the ad.
Yeah, I caught that as well.
Um, yeah, I've never heard of it.
But But, um I mean, I guess it's, Ah, the new thing.
I remember when, during March Madness last year, Um, orange vanilla Coke was really popular.
They were. That's when it just came out.
And they were advertising that in every March Madness game.
So Aro will take the throwing for T F C four and 1/2 minutes in a sold out centurylink field so this throne is taken away by the Sounders.
It's played upfield.
It's back with Toronto.
Aro plays it down the line.
No problem for Seattle.
He'll play it up and a foul is called on Toronto.
And after the whistle was blown, that ball was kicked away by a sore eo and frustration.
Yeah, yeah, I'm doing the whole game.
Avery. Yes, I am.
I'm looking forward to it as well.
Yeah, I'll be on for the entirety.
If it ends in 90 minutes, 120 or penalty kicks, I'll be on from the opening kickoff to the final whistle.
I'm looking forward to it as well.
I always enjoy unless cup, even though the even when my team's not in and I'm still wrapping the revolution.
So what can I say? But it's, you know, the Revolution.
I made four MLS Cups and I've lost all four, so it's been a while since we made it.
But you know, we're on the were on the rise.
We made the playoffs this year.
A bright future ahead for the Revolution, the upcoming years.
I'm hoping in the next three or four years we can get to m Alaska.
Be great if it sooner. But we'll see.
All right, this cross is sent in by Justin Morrow.
The header there from Torrez and now with it for Seattle is Lear them.
Well, send this one in the air moving GE has it for Toronto will play it across the back to Omar Gonzalez Gonzalez.
What is going on? Jimmy, Welcome into the broadcast.
I appreciate it's the MLS Cup here on SportsCastr Toronto FC at the Seattle Sounders next year.
You think it could be LFC against Toronto FC? Yeah, definitely possible.
I think they should have made it this year.
You know, they had a historic regular season, and then Seattle went to L.
A and upset them to get to this Thio get to the MLS Cup final today.
And you know, I really thought L A f c was going to go all the way.
You know, those Those were two upsets in the conference finals.
Toronto beating Atlanta as well.
This cross sent in down low.
It's sent out of danger by Kim and that will go out of play.
Yeah, the MLS is.
You know, despite this being the match up to the last three out of four years, it's still a league that's like, really, it's really a league where you don't know who's gonna make, who's gonna make the final.
I mean, this year we didn't know.
I don't think a lot of people thought it would be the Sounders in Toronto FC in the ER in the MLS Cup. I shouldn't.
I thought it was gonna be L.
A F C in Atlanta from, uh, after the regular season especially.
But, um, you know, that's the fun.
That's that's what's so fun about MLS.
And, you know, with the new playoff format, one game elimination every round, anything's possible.
This ball played in its cleared out by Kim Stefan Frei was coming out for it but didn't want to risk anything as a sore eo was putting the pressure on eight minutes in throwing for Toronto on the far side, it's thrown into Ben is a Ben is a place it in the middle.
Now it's Delgado Gonzalez.
Toronto Still haven't Michael Bradley with a nice one touch past? It's in the middle now with Pozuelo, it's out wide.
Toronto FC on the attack.
Pozuelo switches fields, tried and sorrow, but it's intercepted by Jordan Morris.
Here come the sound of the other way.
Morris making his way to the other end.
The left footed shot saved Westberg.
Morris took it all by himself, but Quentin Westberg was ready.
And you know Jordan Morris.
He can be you down that flank.
He took off after intercepting that pass and you know he had options across.
Could have played. It.
Could have played a nice ball across, but decided to take the shot himself.
And ultimately not the right decision.
But that's a ah, good sign.
If you're a Seattle fan here, nine minutes in and you know, good to see Jordan Morris having a great season, really, after coming off of that injury, I believe it was his A c l buddy tour in the preseason of last year.
He missed all the entirety of last season, but he picked up from where he left off this season.
And, you know, back in MLS Cup with the Sounders chairman is in Seattle.
TORONTO Nothing this ball intended for Endo, but well done by Smith to get there.
He heads it up and ready for that one.
Was Stephan Fried to make the so for I will roll it out wide to Kim Kim up the line to Smith Smith past midfield.
Plays it out wide.
Here is Nicolas Lodeiro while they're over the Crossing, but that's not what he wanted.
It goes out for a goal kick.
Just couldn't quite get the curve on it as that went over the end line.
Michael Bradley, in the 2019 and less regular season, had three goals and three assists in 27 games.
This is this third career and the less cup appearance.
What's going on, Ryan, welcome to the broadcast.
Thanks everyone for hopping into the stream here on SportsCastr.
The 2019 MLS Cup between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders.
What's good, Ryan? I appreciate you coming in here and, you know, the great a great agree.
A phenomenal occasion is what I meant to say in this addition of the 2019 MLS Cup.
These tickets sold out in 20 minutes.
Now Toronto into the box.
The shots save Fry.
The shot from a sore Eo was right at the keeper, right at Stefan Frei.
Casey are having trouble against the Titans.
Yeah, I was watching that before this game got underway.
Is it still 13? 13 Are Has that score since changed.
Thank you, Rita, for joining the broadcast.
Welcome in Toronto FC at the Seattle Sounders in the 2019 and Alaska.
Oh, it's 20 to 20 now.
So 12 minutes in ah, at Centurylink Field in Seattle, Washington.
It's a throwing for Toronto on the far side.
And that ball will stay in bounds.
There was Justin Moral.
He'll send it out of play.
Another Sounders throwing jets, jets and giants are an epic duel in the snoop.
Yeah, I was. I was flipping off.
I was Ah, going Ah, between the Kansas City Tennessee game and the the New York New York game.
Yeah, that's the two games.
Ah, we have, uh, Ryan here in that New England's.
Yeah, way we got We got the s new poll exactly right between the Giants and Jets, but yeah, it's turning out to be a nice competitive.
I want a ball in, but it goes over the end.
Line one A service just a little too much on it.
Intended for leered.
Um wow, that was a great, great look.
Even though the execution not quite there from Raul Rui D s.
You don't have that game.
You've got the Lions, bears and Philly.
Yeah, I'd rather have that came, but yeah.
Yeah, we're stuck with the Giants jets here.
What do we got here? The ball didn't leave the box.
That's why if you're wondering if you're a little bit confused about that So the new rule was implemented in June by FIFA that the, uh you can now take a goal kick and receive it inside your own box.
it doesn't have to leave the box.
But that rule is implemented midway through the MLS season.
So you cannot change the rule in the middle of the season.
So this will be the last MLS game where you still have to take a goal kick and have it get outside the box after that for the 2020 unless season, the new rule will be in place.
If you're by any chance confused by that, what do we got here? If Alabama still makes the playoffs for CFB, I'm gonna right? Yeah.
I don't think they should get in now.
I mean, yeah, they will either be 45 Um, you know, they'll be right on the bubble, I think.
But I don't think they they're gonna make it.
I don't think they should make it, but we'll see a foul.
Meanwhile, Kim taking down I believe that was Pozuelo.
Yes, Pozuelo was the one found they shouldn't they dio Yeah, that's true.
Yeah, they they really had to win yesterday to get in.
I don't think that they will get in and we'll see this ball sent in by Michael Bradley.
One touch pass from a story on some more Amaro taken down.
Play on, says the referee.
Toronto into the box, The ball sent in.
And that will go off of Seattle and a Toronto corner kick.
Yes, this could be a very good game.
I mean, the way.
These unless playoffs have been, it's been exciting action in pretty much every game.
I wouldn't I wouldn't expect anything less.
This afternoon in Seattle, this ball sent in.
Michael Bradley put his Lego.
That could have been a dangerous play.
Nothing called Seattle trying to get other end.
Toronto Putting the pressure on, they'll finally clear it out here.
15 minutes in the score.
Seattle Sounders Nil Toronto FC Nil.
Now it will be a foul called on Toronto moving GE.
The guilty party.
Yeah, coming in from behind.
Taking down on the play.
Raoul Ruiz Diaz.
Lenny and I had lost the Toronto Yep, every year, right? Yeah, yeah.
And it was both Conference finals were ah, were upsets.
Toronto beat Atlanta and Seattle beat LFC.
So yeah, it was pretty crazy.
I was expecting L A f c the play out land in the final, But Seattle in Toronto meeting now for the third time in four years in the MLS Cup.
I lay in a New England was a horrible game. That's true. Yeah, I know.
Not every single game was good.
Yeah, back in the first round.
Yet that that is true.
I mean, it wasn't it.
Yeah, it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't.
It was all right.
Um well, for me, it was horrible.
Since I'm a diehard revolution fan, put for a neutral fan.
I was comin chain my high school's football game that day, so I only could see the highlights, so I can't really speak. I get.
I looked back and watched it.
This ball played out why Endo couldn't handle it.
That goes out of play for a Sounders goalkick and a little bit frustrated with himself.
Could have done better with it.
So Stefan Frei will take the goal kick for the Sounders.
Yeah, I can see the Toronto section up on the second bull in the in the right corner.
Then I did see some red up there.
So that goal kick well past midfield.
Now it's with Ah, now it's with I believe that was Lodeiro for Seattle.
Now it will go out of play on the far side throwing for the Sounders.
Hell, you're fine, Avery.
I know what you mean.
If you're a letter off, I still I still understand what you're saying.
Yeah, Yeah, I'm impressed that they had that many fans make the trek out west.
This throwing all the way to the box cleared out by Toronto.
Now this ball sending my Seattle The Heather It's over the bar The header from Raul Ruiz Diaz.
Want a chance there for Seattle? But Omar Gonzalez was right there making sure Rui de s couldn't put up a good effort in on net with his head.
It's really a nice job from Omar Gonzalez, making sure he Adam covered Now this ballpoint over the top, Endo running onto it.
Who cleared the wrong way by Torrez.
Now it's a story A with it for tfc.
Osorio plays it out.
The one touch shot from I believe it was Ah, Pozuelo that was blocked.
Not too much power on it in the end.
Now it will be played all the way back from Gonzalez toe Westberg Westberg.
We'll switch it to the other side.
Now it's Mavinga moving up to Michael Bradley.
Back to move. Inga.
That's a bad pass there.
From moving GE easily taken over in the middle of the pitch by Kim.
Came back to lead them.
Leered him over to Torres Tourist.
Place this ball, and that will be a foul called a collision.
There seemed, but the foul will go in the favor of Seattle.
Mavinga going over the top of Nico Lodeiro.
20th minute. Nothing.
The score between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders.
Yeah, you know, the right call there.
But Mavinga might have got the worst of it.
Yeah, they're the Toronto hands.
Yeah, they're having a good time ready for this.
Seattle has had some decent chances.
Yep, definitely the favorite in this game.
But, hey, you never know.
All right, this ball will be played all the way out wide over the head of Smith.
That should be handled on Smith.
Nothing called, though.
We had a great angle on it here, but Seattle still haven't with Aero crosses it and no one there at the back post a little too much on that cross.
What a chance for Seattle.
After a missed call, I thought Now Toronto turning over the Sounders, The shot.
It's deflected and that will be a corner kick for Seattle.
So Seattle, with the momentum here great work, though by Brad Smith to keep that ball inbounds.
I thought it went off of his arm.
Originally, nothing was called in a great opportunity for the Sounders.
In the end, Cristian Roldan wins the corner.
Kick that ball going off of, I think. Gonzales.
Alright, all the shot.
It's over the bar.
What a change for the Seattle Sounders.
Torrez making the run, The one touch effort over the crossbar.
What a service! That was from Lodeiro and no one was marking Torrez.
He was wide open.
Toronto FC! Get a break! The hair! My goodness! Good opportunity for the Sounders about midway through half number one.
So now Pozuelo has it to Mavinga Moving.
Go places that wide Toronto happen on the far side, now played in the middle toe.
Ben is a Osorio Boys back to Pozuelo, overto Aro.
Now they switch fields out.
It goes to Delgado.
Delgado sends the cross, and it's a nice ball.
Ben is a tried to play the cross was blocked.
Toronto FC Those still have possession this well employed in Smith with the header.
Jordan Morris comes away with it.
He plays it upto Lodeiro with Aero gets it up to Seattle on the fast break.
But holding it up will be Rui Diaz as Toronto quickly got back.
Yeah, the Toronto goalie could be the difference.
He's come a big in these playoffs.
Not a lot of people know about him.
Um, but, you know, I've been impressed so far in these playoffs.
I've saw quite a bit of Toronto FC in the playoffs.
Um, yeah, and you know, a lot of people know the other.
The other goal keeper, Stephan Fry, a lot better myself included.
Don't know too much about Westberg, but he's made some big plays in these playoffs, and he could definitely be a huge factor in this game.
Still, no goals for either side within his Pozuelo.
Alejandro Pozuelo hasn't thank you, Mike, for joining the broadcast.
What is going on Welcoming? It's the MLS Cup here on SportsCastr between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders.
24th minute Here it is to Jordan.
Morris Morris tried to play through.
It goes back to him.
Jordan Morris, at the edge of the box, plays a ball in save Stephan.
Save Quentin Westberg is what I meant to say.
And no problem there.
Westberg quickly throws without white tow.
Roo, you're doing Panthers Packer soon if you're interested.
I'll check that out if I can, uh, at the end of my stream or even at halftime of this game.
The second half will probably be underway before like, it's on.
But I'll definitely check you out every.
Yeah, for those of you training and make sure you check out Avery here on SportsCastr, he's got a lot of good videos on SportsCastr.
He knows a lot as well knows a ton about sports, so make sure you check him out.
He'll be on for Panthers.
Packers? Yeah, for whatever reason.
Avery in my area, they're showing the Steelers Rams instead.
Uh, I don't know why we kind of got screwed this weekend's for games, and that will be a fell on Brad Smith.
I mean, Steelers Ramses in the worst one but I'd rather have Panthers Packers Josie Altidore, by the way, is on the bench for Toronto, yet a quad strain in the decision they win against Columbus on October 6th.
He's had no appearances since, but he could come off the bench.
I don't know if if that's a possibility.
Well, it's definitely a possibility, but I don't know what percentage chance there is.
Um, of that happening.
You think it's because you have files? Maybe.
I thought it was always just based on where you live, not the TV provider you had, but, um, I don't know.
It could be that Michael Bradley with the shot.
That's why did the goal.
He was taken down the end of that one.
Nothing called goal kick for the Sounders.
A little laugh after the fact from Michael Bradley.
Michael Bradley taken one from way outside the box, So a goal kick here for Seattle Seattle, by the way, in green, Toronto in red, their traditional colors.
The possession, By the way, so far, Seattle Sounders with 39% possession, Toronto FC 61.
You can't wait for MNF tomorrow night.
I know Monday Night Football is gonna be awesome.
I should be, Ah, doing that game first half anyway, because I will have school on Tuesday between the 40 Niners Seahawks? Yeah, that should be a great game.
I'm looking forward to it as well.
Now that the Patriots lost, I kind of just want the 40 Niners to lose.
So there's no more undefeated teams.
Looks like Josh Gordon is gonna make his debut for the Seahawks as well tomorrow.
So Toronto FC haven't 27th minute and Endo plays it on back.
Here's Pozuelo gets right by, um, the Seattle Descend defender.
This one play to Ben is a butt too much on it.
It goes over the end line for a goal kick.
Ben is a a little frustrated there, and you know not not great opportunities for either team yet, but there's definitely been Ben chances, um, a majority of them coming from from Seattle.
But you know the possession in favor of Toronto so far and we'll see if that, uh, you know, really great opportunity for either team comes any time soon.
This one will go all the way back from r 02 Westberg Westberg places up to Gonzales Gonzales Tow roo Aro has time.
He'll play in the middle in a sore EO will switch fields to the far side.
It goes for Toronto FC.
This ball played out wide.
It's back with Aro.
Iro sends it to the middle.
Now Endo for Toronto, plays it out wide.
Here is Delgado.
Delgado plays it up for Pozuelo, but again too much on it, and it trickles over the end line out of play for a goal kick.
So a little bit frustrating.
These last compliments for Toronto because they've had the majority of the possession.
But in the end, the execution just not there.
That bomb, it was out of play.
So Toronto take the throwing Aro back to Omar Gonzalez Gonzalez.
Our own night met with the Nutmeg on Jordan Morris, but Morris did good and recovery to win that ball back.
The Sounders haven't back to Brad Smith.
Smith plays it up, but no problem for Omar Gonzalez, who plays it.
Westbourne Westbourne takes a touchback to Gonzalez.
It goes, he plays it.
Michael Bradley, a battle at midfield and no Fattal called play on, says the referee, and goes all the way back for Kim of the Seattle Sounders.
Yeah, hopefully I don't have I don't want to jinx it, but so far, so good here on the stream yesterday, for whatever reason, three times it abruptly stopped and I had to had to restart it.
But, um, we'll see.
Hopefully, we don't have that problem today.
I think it was on SportsCastrs, and but I don't know, it could be my Internet.
This is out of play for a Toronto corner kick, Pozuelo winning the corner.
But I can assure you, that SportsCastr are you know, it's it's improving, you know? It's still relatively new, but they're looking to and improve the, ah, improve the product for sure.
Because, um, Nick, who is the owner of SportsCastr? He actually actually reached out to me.
And ah told me to send him the links to my stream so he could see what the what the issue was on there.
And so they are looking to improve it, of course.
So they're looking into why, Because it's happened to other people, too.
I know other people who streams have just ended.
All of a sudden, um But yeah, they're looking t o fix those issues, which is good.
This ball played across and that will go out of play on the near side.
Good defending their by moving GE coming all the way back, sprinting back toe block that cross in from Brad Smith.
That could be a game saving block there.
Or was it Bradley? You made the block.
It was one of the two, so the oh, it went out for a corner kick. My apologies.
I did not see that.
I thought it was one on the sideline, but no went over the end line corner kick for Seattle.
It will be a left footed outswinger here.
We're past the half hour mark 00 between the Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC in the 2019 MLS Cup.
Thanks so much for joining me, everybody.
So this will be placed short with it is Jones.
Jones plays it in the shot takes a deflection, another corner kick coming up.
That time from Svensson.
The ball kind of just landed to him in the box, and once again, Lodeiro will take the corner kick in the Seattle fans on their feet.
They had been the whole game trying to get behind their team.
It will be into the box headed out by Michael Bradley.
It will go all the way back to Kim, the last defender for the Sounders.
Kim will play it up a ball in the air here.
Now it's a nice ball played in Michael Bradley with a tackle there and down goes Torrez and an extreme amount of pain here.
It's just a corner kick called.
There is video review.
Yeah, not much, innit? I'll think.
Let's see, this is a better angle.
They were kind of just both going for it.
It's It's unfortunate for Torres, but not enough for a penalty, in my opinion, because Bradley did get ball first.
A Seattle corner kick, though coming up the Sounders looking Thio take the lead here.
60 both teams looking to get on the scoresheet 1st 33rd minute.
This will be an in swinging ball from Nico Lodeiro.
The ball sent in an R O will send it right back out of play.
Another corner kick.
That's, Oh, it's a quick corner kick taken.
Jones sent into the box the header from Bradley.
It's over the end line for another corner kick.
So three in a row here and the Seattle fans wanna go here.
Can they deliver? It's electric atmosphere inside centrally field, but that crosses right into the hands of Quentin Westberg.
Westberg will quickly throw it out.
Toronto, looking to go the other way quickly within his Ben, is a Ben is a Texas in the middle of the field, now plays a nice ball over the top on the end of this one.
No, Osorio can't quite get there.
Brad Smith beat him to it now Jordan Morris and it will be off of Toronto for a Seattle throw.
It seemed like that was off of Morris from my point of view anyway.
Here on the ABC broadcast, Bonelli was given to Seattle.
Brad Smith will take the throw for the Sounders.
Smith plays this one up.
Here's Lodeiro, but that is intercepted by Omar Gonzalez.
Here come Toronto FC.
It's with Juan Carlos.
No, sorry. It was with a story.
Oh, my apologies.
Oreo spin around and he is fouled.
So it's Oreo is taken down and, ah, free kick in a dangerous position here for Toronto FC.
So Jonathan Osorio taken down.
It looks like it will be.
I'll let you know who's taken the free kick.
As soon as I figured out it will be Pozuelo So Pozuelo to take the free kick setting up the Wallace Stephan Fry.
They got two on the wall. Seattle does.
The rest are man marking at the edge of the box.
The whistle is blown by Alan Chapman, the ball sending my Pozuelo, the header out by Torrez and Jones with it for Seattle.
Toronto when it back Osorio Place with that wide Toronto FC on the attack.
The shots save stuff and fry it back out with us with the Ah excuse me with Ben is a in Seattle.
Eventually clear it out.
That's the best chance of the game so far.
Steph and Fry was prepared making the save, so this will be played back with Westberg Westberg.
We'll switch fields out to the far side with Mavinga.
Mavinga plays this one up here Come Toronto.
It's over to Delgado.
Delgado toe Endo, Endo on the right side, right at the edge of the box.
Delgado out tomorrow.
Can Aro send this one in? He's one on one.
All we nutmegs Brad Smith and then he's taken down.
But nothing's called.
Roo is absolutely furious.
Looked like a foul to me, but nothing was called by the official, Allan Chapman.
And now Toronto FC will take a quick throw.
Things getting chippy out there in the MLS Cup with it is Christmas Eve.
Inga Squid on the far side.
What a bit of skill there.
It's playing to the middle.
Pozuelo back this ball sent across what Endo was nowhere near that one.
It's cleared out by the Sounders and hear the Seattle Sounders come.
Michael Bradley, coming back to defense with Arrows, double teamed in the ball, taken away from Toronto.
Nice job there by Toronto FC coming back on defense, but they give it right back to Seattle.
For those of you just coming into the stream, I appreciate it a lot.
It's the 38th minute, the score.
Nothing between Seattle and Toronto here in the 2019 MLS Cup.
So with it is Kim, a nice move by Brad Smith.
Madero with heavy touch, and he was shoved off the ball.
No whistle blown.
And here come Toronto, the other way.
A lot of physicality so far in the referee letting them play, for the most part. Delgado.
Now it's Pozuelo.
Pause a little with 12 tries to get out to Ben and say, Ben is a back to Pozuelo.
Causeway Low sends it to the other side.
It's Delgado Delgado back, tow Roo Aro to Pozuelo.
He lost it on Lee as Faras Michael Bradley, though, was that one cleared.
He'll play that wide.
Now It's Ben is a Ben is a sends this ball in and that will go over the end line for a goal kick.
So you know a lot of great buildup play, but the final product just not quite there from either team so far.
But despite the scoreline being nil nil, it's spent an entertaining first stuff.
You know, both teams getting chances, the best chance of the game coming about five or so minutes ago.
Stefan Frei, making a big time save, diving to his left side and making the save with his left hand outreached outstretched for that one.
Stephan Fry of the Seattle Sounders is Emma Linens and last postseason career just 0.
90 goals against average nine shut outs and 22 appearances.
He comes up big when it matters from host and show.
And why again today.
You definitely have to give the goalkeeping advantage to Seattle, especially with the experience Stephan Fried has in big games like these.
Westberg, Meanwhile, he hasn't been, uh, involved in the stage as big as this as the goalkeeper.
Um, you know, we'll see if that plays a role.
This one played applause.
Well, oh, still in play, the Cross sent in its headed out by Kim.
Now it's up to Jones.
Jones loses that.
He wanted a foul to be called No whistle.
Now down goes, Ben is a and players flying all over the place.
Ben is a with it.
He's triple teamed Toronto FC still somehow have it.
It's out to Michael Bradley.
Bradley will play a wide Seattle doing a lot of defending in this first half, but especially in these last five minutes or so.
Now it's with Delgado, Delgado in the middle to Michael Bradley, Bradley back to Mavinga, Mavinga to Omar Gonzalez.
Gonzalez well played all the way out wide.
Paul sent in no problem for Torres, but it's back to Toronto FC.
Here's Ben is a Let's don't go out wide, the cross sent in its by everyone, though, we'll go all the way to the other side with it is Aro and nice defending their from Nico Lodeiro.
No foul called and this will be off of Roo of Toronto in a Seattle throwing Aro.
Definitely frustrated with calm, but it will be a throw for the Sounders in a big time tackle, by the way from Svensson a few minutes ago.
And you know, the Sounders defense coming up big here.
They've had toe defend a lot these last few minutes, but they're making big time shackles possession so far.
The Seattle Sounders 36% Toronto FC 64.
That tells you a lot right there and now a foul will be called on Toronto Lodeiro.
The one excuse me rolled on.
The one who went down for the Sounders and the Seattle Sounders can now finally take a breath for a second 42nd minute. Nothing.
Nothing in the as the first half winds down in the 2019 MLS Cup between the Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC.
Thanks so much for joining me.
Beautiful day by the way in Seattle, Washington at centurylink Field.
A sold out stadium.
70,000 in attendance for this one.
The tickets selling out in less than 20 minutes.
This one cleared out by Gonzalez throwing on the near side for the Seattle Sounders.
Morris will let it go for Brad Smith.
Smith to Morris back.
It goes to Smith, Smith to rolled on, afflict on header there from Lodeiro.
But offsides is Jordan Morris, and a wasted opportunity there for the Sanders will be a Toronto free kick.
Going the other way goes well past midfield.
It will fall for Endo of Toronto.
He'll play it back for Pozuelo Pozuelo.
Now it's Michael Bradley.
Bradley to Gonzalez over. Moving.
Go on the other side of the pitch.
Some Toronto with it.
A tackle in there and it will be a fell on tfc.
A Seattle free kick.
Going out, Down went, um, Down went Torrez.
Excuse me, Jones.
Jovan Jones, the one who was fouled for the Sounders 44th minute.
I'll let you know how much time Excuse me will be added on to this first half assed.
Soon as I find out.
Yet in 45 minutes thus far, you're throwing around midfield for the Sounders.
A little miscommunication there between moving Genaro didn't come to hurt them.
In the end, Mavinga, still able to control it with it, is rolled on.
He plays a nice ball over the top.
The cross sent in.
Getting on the that was through India's The Shot saved Westberg.
What a chance there for the Seattle Sounders.
In on goal is Raul Ruiz Diaz.
Nice buildup play by the Seattle Sounders.
A nice ball played in as well from Lodeiro.
And what an opportunity for the Sounders.
There'll be a minimum of one minute added on to this first half, This ball sent in.
So we are now into stoppage time, about 25 seconds into it.
Jovan Jones sentiment Bradley there to deal with it, but it's back with Seattle.
The shot from outside the box blocked.
Here come Toronto the other way.
Endo leaves it on for Ben is a Now will be left on back and Toronto FC will possess from the back.
And that might just about do it for this first half.
10 seconds or so, left and Serrano are happy to knock it around here in the back.
And there are the two whistles say, knowing for I'm well, 45 minutes down, 45 to go, your score at the half in the 2019 and less cup.
The Seattle Sounders zero Toronto FC zero while the Toronto fans happy that their team are not down a goal, the little group of supporters that made the trek out West.
Meanwhile, the Seattle Sounders, a packed, packed stadium full of Sounders fans.
Well, be glad that Toronto didn't get on the board, either.
I think both teams you know we'll be okay, you know, not pleased, but not disappointed with how the first half went.
But C l definitely will need to possess the ball lot more in the second half than they did in the 1st 45 minutes.
If they want Thio prevent if they if they don't want to get gassed out, because if they keep having to ah, defend like they were in that first half, then I mean then I mean, they'll be gassed out and you know Toronto FC having a majority of the possession around 65 70% and Seattle now heading to the locker room.
They definitely gotta pick up their game here in the second half of you had a pick who's happier at the half, you know, I would say Toronto, although they would have liked to have a goal.
But then again, the Sounders had a really nice chance at the end of the first half.
With that opportunity for Raul Ruiz Diaz, not the best of shots in the end, should have done better with it.
But, you know, still a tough technique with the cross coming in.
So, you know, it hasn't been the most electrifying first half a CZ we were probably hoping for.
But I'm sure the second half will have plenty of fireworks.
And, you know, I appreciate all of you who are tuning into the stream here on SportsCastr.
We still got 45 minutes to go.
We should be in for a good 2nd 45 minutes.
Your score at the half.
Toronto FC zero, Toronto FC zero Seattle and Toronto second half Coming up after these.
Ah, next compliments.
It's Chapter three.
These teams, meeting for the third time in four years in the MLS Cup.

Stay right where you are.
Second half coming up.
All right, What is going on? McLemore, a Seattle Sounders co owner, had the festivities going earlier on before kickoff, getting the crowd riled up.
And you know, it's been an electric atmosphere.
Really? Um, between the Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC.
And yeah, we have second half coming up shortly.

It's halftime here, and I'm just here kind of re capping the first half.
Um, and you know, I'll be back for more as we get closer and closer to the second half.

It's 00 at the half.
So the score line nothing, nothing.
Let's look back at the first half. Nine.
Many highlights, but there were a few Toronto FC.
Definitely the better team, especially if you look at the possession and, you know, they had a few opportunities.
A shot in on goal early on from, uh, Osorio.
But it was right to the chest of Stefan Frei.
No worries, really there, so alive looking here of Toronto FC in the locker room.
They're getting ready to go back onto the field and getting prepared for the second half.
So it's nothing.
Nothing at the half.
Seattle with eight shots to on gold.
Toronto with six shots.
Three of those being on goal.
But I'm sure things will open up here in the second half as the teams will realize, you know, the later and later we go, and the longer the score stays the same they got they got to put a goal in the board.
The Ravens won 49 13.
Yeah, I saw that they were crushing.
I mean, it is the bangles to so but, yeah, they crushed Tennessee just took the lead on Kansas City.
Um, I just saw that during the, uh I was just checking in on that during the commercial break.
Both teams will come back onto the field shortly for the second half.

So the starting 11 still out there to start the second half? See if Josie Altidore ever comes in for Toronto? Yeah, I probably will.
Yeah, Even though it's not my team, I probably will go insane.
If any team scores, this will go off of Toronto a Seattle throwing to take the throw.
It looks like it's Lear them.
Yeah, lead them to take the throw its into Cristian Roldan rolled on with it back.
It goes for lier.
Them leered him, too.
Torrez Tours will playing across the back to Kim Kim.

Almost taken away My Delgado, but I went right back to the Sounders here.
Two minutes into the second half.
Tour has sends that one up, but it goes all the way back to goalkeeper Quentin Westberg of Toronto FC.
Now this one will land with Pozuelo.
Possible out wide with Ben is eight.
Ben is eight into the box, Cuts back, sends it to a soy Oreo.
Osorio Back to Ben is a Ben is a across back post.
The shot from Delgado is blocked by Brad Smith out of play for a Toronto throwing, so Toronto will take the throne on the far side.
Quick. One touch pass right back.
Now it's in the middle with Mavinga.
Delgado gives it away.
Give it right back.
Toronto with it.
There Jordan Morris was ready.
Here come the Sounders the other way.
Morris, on the run with it, sends it across.
But back was Omar Gonzalez till block that one. Up and down.
Action here it back with Toronto FC.
Here they go and go with it.
You'll play it all the way out.
Wine Well, now be held up momentarily.
It's now in the middle of the pitch with Jonathan s Oreo s Oreo to Pozuelo Pozuelo.
Oh, tried singing it, sending it across that was blocked by chores with fatuous Oreo.
It went Here's Pozuelo with a 12 Now it's just in Morro Snow all the way back with Omar Gonzalez Delgado.
This ball intended for Endo, but Kim was there and Smith will send it down the line up in the air.
The header by Gonzalez is one Toronto FC, Back with possession.
Here's Pozuelo, Venezuela, taken at himself and he loses it too much.
On that last touched Stefan Frei was ready and makes the grab thanks so much everyone for suiting into the broadcast here on SportsCastr.
It's the 2019 MLS Cup between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders here from the opening kickoff to the final whistle.
50th minute, second half starting not too long ago.
Toronto With it switching fields is Ben is a Now it's Pozuelo, a 12 with Endo.
It's played out wide.
The cross sent in, but there was Lear. Them toe.
Get a foot on that one, but Toronto FC, still with the ball, Almost a carbon copy of the first half.
Toronto with a lot of possession so far.
Pozuelo in the box to Osorio Osorio turns around.
It's landed for Ben is a Venezuela shot blocked by Lear.
Them the Seattle defense like a wall back there in the box, not letting any shot getting on goal.
So Mavinga sends it up.
And, yes, it is called down went Pozuelo.
The foul committed by Christian rolled on 260 minutes, but he's so a free kick here.
Four tfc will be Pozuelo to take it.
Stefan Frei setting up his wall.
They have two on the wall, Pozuelo floater over the top, the header that one cleared by Seattle and that will go over the goal and a Toronto corner kick coming up.
So out to take it is Endo Toronto, FC, the better team in the first half and so far the better team in the second half as well, with the majority of the possession this game.
So this ball sent in.
It's headed out by Kim and this will go out of play for a throwing.
Is it? So it's Brad Smith to take the throne for Seattle.
Not much going so far in this second half.
Michael Bradley, with the glass of the now Seattle comes away with possession.
Jordan Morris has it.
Here's Leerdam cleared him back to Svensson.
Rolled on back to Svensson.
Christian rolls on dribbling with it under pressure from and from Endo, he got away.
No foul called Toronto takeover possession.
Here's a story Oh plays into Pozuelo.
Pozuelo somehow still has it.
What a bit of trickery there from Alejandro Pozuelo plays a ball through to a story.
Oh, takes a deflection, and no problem for Stephane Fry.
Just dancing around with the ball.
Run three players on Seattle.
We're running in circles trying to win that ball.
Then he sent Jovan Jones to the ground before playing a ball into Ah to Jonathan S Oreo.
Still the score here in the 2019 MLS Cup between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders.
Thanks so much for joining me on the broadcast style across the back to move Inga.
This ball played down, sending it in trying, sending it, and I should say it's been a say.
But that one went over the end line and look who's warming up.
So out the door it's starting to get Toronto substitutes pretty much their whole bench butt out the door, the one to keep an eye on. For sure.
He hasn't played a playoff game as he was injured in the last game of the regular season on Decision Day for two Rajjo FC.
Excuse me, but I'm you know, he is an option on the bench.
Toronto might put him in at the end.
We'll see, um, how much he has in him.
You know, you don't know how Sharp is going to be, either.
Michael Bradley with it.
Bradley will play that wine.
Here's Mavinga Mavinga tomorrow.
Now it's a story.
Oh, the tackle in there it lands for Ben is a Ben is a with too heavy of a touch last second.
It's cleared out on Lee as far as Justin Morro of Toronto.
FC Maura out O R o r o to Endo.
Here's Delgado sent it in in a big, big time sliding tackle there from leered Um, Toronto.
Still have it? Endo.
Try to get it back to Delgado.
Delgado won't get there in time.
It goes and out of play for a Seattle goalkick.
He's so looks like Seattle will be the first to make a substitution in this game.
It'll be Rodriguez coming in.
We'll see who he comes in for your in the 57th minute.
He'll be coming in shortly.
Meanwhile, the goal kick one by Toronto, the header from Michael Bradley to Jonathan S.
Oreo and Osorio just tramples over Svenson on the play offs.
Oreo actually wanted a foul to be called Hon. Seattle.
I think the other way around would have been the right call, referee says.
Play on Seattle with on the far side, this play down the line by Lodeiro Jones in the middle.
Seattle With it, this ball played out wide.
Um, we're the past a beggar, The Net and go.
The Seattle Sounders and Centurylink Field is going absolutely crazy.
The Seattle Sounders have taken the lead here in the 2019 MLS Cup in Toronto.
Are absolutely furious with the referee Alan Chapman, and it's leave them with the goal.
And the Sounders fans are going crazy.
Wow! The shot in on goal from leered Um, it took a deflection off of Morrow in a fortunate deflection for Seattle in unfortunate deflection for Toronto.
Wow, Completely against the run of play, Lear done puts it in the back of the neck and Seattle takes the lead in the MLS Cup.
The Sounders lead it and how well Toronto respond.
It looked like the shot from Reardon was going.
Why'd it was redirected off of a deflection from Justin Morro and into the back of the net? It went unfortunate for Toronto, and now they look to respond.
This one end he has taken out foul called it will be a free kick for Toronto.
FC Ben is a down a challenge from Lear them.
The gold score not too long ago, studs up there from leered them as well.
Greg Vanney, the coach of Toronto, not too pleased with what's going on out.
There could have easily been a yellow card.
I mean, that's that's a bad tackle right there.
You never want to see.
But no card is given.
That's what Ben is.
It will be a free kick, kind of like a corner to put a little closer in Pozuelo to take it a right footed inswinger here.
60th minute. One. Nothing.
Seattle. Eat it.
The kick taken the header up, and that will be cleared out by John By Jordan Morris Endo is furious for Toronto.
He thought that should have been a corner kick that that ball went over the end line.
Let's see if this is the correct decision that Morris did indeed save it from going over the line.
Well, we couldn't see well on that angle.
Now the first substitution of the game will be made by the Seattle Sounders, and coming off will be Brad Smith.
Coming in will be Rodriguez.
So Smith off for Rodriguez.
A big round of applause from the fans at Centurylink field.
Yes, I know I know, Ryan.
The Chiefs did lose.
Ah, that's that's the best thing that can happen on the Patriots.
Bye week of your Patriots fan that the Chiefs lose.
All right, so Smith off for Rodriguez.
Just taking a note on that here.
Yeah, I know, I know.
I was happy to see that 61st minute.
Seattle up one to nothing over Toronto Thanks to a goal from Justin leered.
I'm not too long ago this will trickle.
And four Stephan Fry, did you watch Man City in Liverpool? Ryan, that was quite the performance from Liverpool three.
The one they wanted.
Oh, you were just about to comment on that.
Yeah, Yeah, I guess I read your mind on that one, but yeah.
Huge win for Liverpool on you now.
Wow! There! Nine points ahead of Man City, eight points clear of second place Leicester City.
Chelsea level on points with Lester as well.
I would have done that game, but since I'm last couples taking place, I did that.
Looks like your prediction of Liverpool winning the Premier League is going to be right.
Hey, you can't You can't say it yet Because remember, last year Liverpool were leading the league by what seven points around Christmas time and Man City came back to win the league.
It's still early ons.
No Nick Daley own is coming in for Toronto, by the way.
So de Leone in four.
Endo Let me just take a note on that.
All right, so this ball send in the box by Seattle moving go there with the header.
But I Liverpool definitely looking really good, right? And I agree.
Yes, Chef Fields in the top five.
I know it's crazy, Dude, it is crazy.
Sheffield is fifth place.
Yep, I know it's insane, Dude.
GE has it up. It goes to Justin Morro.
That's a bad giveaway.
Ben is a given it away, but Toronto went right back.
Here is Jonathan this Oreo Howell, Toronto respond.
They've been the better team all game.
Seattle scoring against their on the play and they give it right back to the Sounders.
Out of play, it goes Seattle to take the throw.
Yes, We D'oh! Yep.
Seattle scoring, thanks to a deflection off of Justin Morrow that went in the back And that the shot from leered Um I know taught them or in 14th that is hilarious.
I know, I know, man.
Hey, Chelsea is not doing too bad at all.
I'm a Chelsea fan myself.
We're tied for second with Lester's.
So and Christian Pulisic is its scoring for Chelsea.
It sze going well, you're a Tottenham fan. Yeah, it's tough.
I don't know what is going on it.
Then they re but, um, it's just a disaster.
The season for them.
Yeah, there is a small difference on points, but still 14th is 14 feet.
It's Yeah, it's true.
Like a wind would get them all the way up to probably like a Thor seventh place or something like that.
But still, yeah only will take a few wins for them and be back in the top six.
Yeah, exactly, But still, it's still funny how it's Heather and 14th right now.
All right, Seattle have around midfield 65th minute, the Sounders leading one to nothing over Toronto FC Michael Bradley with possession of the ball.
I know Sheffield in the Champions League would be something crazy.
Even Europa League dude like, but yeah, Champions League that would be something Tow watch.
Oh, Tackle and their two players down.
Now it's one by Seattle, and play will be stopped as it looks like it's moving.
Go down for Toronto and it is Kim down for Seattle.
Yeah, Sheffield in the Champions League, that would be crazy.
I thought it was pretty crazy.
Pretty awesome how Atalanta made the Champions League this season.
But, Chef, it'll be a whole nother level.
Like auto Locked has at least been in the league for a while.
But But usually, you know, mid toe, bottom of the table, it was cool to see them get.
Fourth place is in the Italian league and city.
Ah, look at this.
Josie out the door is getting ready to come on.
Hasn't made a playoff appearance yet because of an injury sustained on Decision Day, the last game of the regular season.
But he's going to come off the bench for Toronto here, Um, but yeah, Sheffield, like just being promoted in stuff that would be a whole another crazy story if they were able to get into the Champions League.
Still a long way to go, but it's it's cool it's cool to see them in fifth place, for sure, trying to see in the 2019 MLS Cup playoffs three game winning goals after the 75th minute.
So this is no new scenario for them.
They never seem to panic down in late game situations.
They are down, one to nothing to the Sounders.
Here in the MLS Cup, this ball will go out of play, a Toronto throwing from the near side.
So Josie Altidore just stretching out before he'll get ready to make his way on for Toronto FC, each team with one substitution left to substitution left one substitution used is what I meant to say.
Seattle Have it a nice touch there from Rodriguez.
The substitute is this.
All the more stores and off of Mavinga.
It's off of Morris as the Ai R some booze raining down from Centurylink Field.
A goal kick is given to Toronto.
FC Mavinga limping a little bit, and here we go.
On comes Josie Altidore for Ben is a and the Serrano supporters who made the trek out west, applauding Josie Altidore as he comes on.
So out the door in for Ben is a Josie Altidore in the regular season.
11 goals, seven assists in 22 games.
But we know what he's capable of.
But back from an injury here in such a big occasion, can he produce like we're used to seeing? We'll have to wait and see.
So out the door in for Toronto halfway through the second half, the Sounders leading one to nothing in the MLS Cup, these two teams meeting in the ****ysts Cup for the third time in four years, this ball stopped by Kim.
But put under pressure.
Is Jones back to Kim? It goes well played up.
Rudy has got a nice touch to it.
It's on to Nicolas Lodeiro when they roll with it.
One on one with Michael Bradley near the sideline, Rodriguez plays in the middle of ruin.
Now it's back out.
Another shot from outside the box takes a bounce, but no problem for Westberg.
As he made the stop, Westberg will throw this one out to Justin Moore, O Morro, back to Westberg.
S women's national team is in action tonight as they take gone Costa Rica, at eight Eastern time.
Try to check out that game, probably will definitely be watching Sunday Night Football as well between Vikings, Cowboys and checking in on the Bruins taking on the Flyers.
Plenty of action tonight.
Here is Jordan Morris.
With it now is Cristian Roldan Roldan.
So Morris Morris sends in the cross.
But that's not what he really wanted out.
It goes for a goal kick.
20 minutes plus stoppage time left in regulation, now going back.
So their goal rolled on.
Thought he was felled.
Leered him, though, clearly wasn't an onside position as he scored.
That goal took a wicked deflection off of Justin Morro, and that's what has us at the scoreline.
We're currently with one to nothing.
Seattle up in the unless Cup, But Serrano will not go away with this.
Rodriguez gives them away.
A sore ego takes over back to Michael Bradley and making a run.
Here on the left side is Justin Mora.
He has space out.
It goes to Morrow.
Morro plays it back in the middle.
It's Jonathan Osorio.
A nice one touch pass there, and now the cross sent in, headed out by Seattle.
Jordan Morris with it, plays it back to Lear them imagine Seattle Sounders in the Frontier League.
Uh, I can't No, I can't really imagine them in the Premier League.
You know, as much as I love them, the less you know, the Premier League is a whole nother level.
You know, ****yst is getting better course with the expansion.
It's it's great to see, but yeah, the Premier League is just a whole another level.
But yeah, um, in my opinion, the Premier League is the best league in the world.
Some argue La Liga.
I don't think so, But you know well, it's great to see em.
Let's get better and better each year.
You know, with all the expansion teams coming in as well.
It's our oh too.
It was with Altidore.
I believe it's given away, and that will be a foul on Delgado and he'll be given a car.
That's the first card of the game.
Down went Lodeiro, and a sore eo is in the book.
Given a yellow car.
Pozuelo, Excuse me is in the book, given a yellow card taking down Lodeiro.
Yeah, I don't think there's Ah much arguing to be had on that call.
It's all 100 Pozuelo with a yellow free kick coming up for the Sounders from their own half step.
One to nothing. Score the Sanders in the lead.
This one played through OS for comes off his line. It will take a deflection.
Maura sends it back across to that ball.
Make its way over the end line.
Yes, it did, but it's often Toronto last corner kick coming up for the Sounders that could have ended in disaster there for Toronto FC.
This ball played in through and it was kicked back from Gonzalez.
But what a reaction from West Birds.
Even get a glove on that one.
Sounders fans on their feet.
Short corner kick the cross played in.
It's headed out by Altidore Back.
It goes to Jovan Jones.
Jones plays it. Lied to leered.
You're come tfc the other way.
Oh, that's a bad giveaway.
Back to Seattle, it goes.
Morris plays it out line.
Rodriguez sends it back in.
Rodriguez into the box.
The left footed shot taken deflection is out for a corner kick.
Justin Morro blocking that one.
Another corner kick for the Sounders.
Mavinga clearly and quite a bit of pain.
We saw him limping earlier.
He's clearly not 100% these last few minutes, and he is now down on the ground.
The Seattle fans on their feet as they been all game and Mavinga will now limp his way to the sideline.
It's unfortunate your Toronto such a solid defender back there for TFC, so moving is receiving treatment.
But so Toronto will currently play down the man he is being looked at.
We'll see if Toronto will need to make a sub or move.
Inga can carry on a chance here for Seattle.
The corner kick, an in swinger handed out a danger by Aro, but Seattle still have it, and the Sounders wanna throwing on the far side.
So moving GE is back into the game.
He received quick medical treatment, but it's back to 11 v 11 here.
Toronto No longer down a man.
There will be a substitution made from Toronto coming up.
It will be their last substitution of regulation anyway.
If they were able to tie it up and were this game to head to overtime, they would be given an extra sub.
Both teams would sounders with it running as the Shock A Stars and Go the Seattle Sounders.
Rodriguez doubles the league for Seattle when they have taken it to nothing lead in the 75th minute.
It's Rodriguez, the substitute with a nice, nice finished from outside of the box.
Bottom right corner, and the Sounders are so, so close to their second MLS Cup in four years.
How about that? Wow.
So the Sounders take the double their leak here.
And you know it's a fantastic shot from Rodriguez right outside the box.
Beautiful placement bottom right corner and Victor Rodriguez, the hero substitute doubles the lead for the Sounders and Toronto FC now have a lot of work to do.
Omar Gonzalez trying to close in on that one.
But Rodriguez got the shot off in time.
Brian Schmidt, Sir The coach of Seattle, happy on the sideline, knowing his team are about 15 minutes from another MLS CA Wow! While the crowd is loving it in Seattle and they have taken a two to nothing lead.
Toronto with a lot of work to do here in not much time, that is true.
Yes, at least the stream hasn't broken down yet.
Absolutely I am glad because, um, yeah, it's just it's just frustrating when that happens.
But, yeah, it's it's been it's been good today.
I don't know what was going on yesterday.
Maybe something wrong on SportsCastr, then I don't really know, but anyway, it's not the end of the world just restarting it.
But it's better when the one with the stream goes the whole game without, um, you haven't a restart it.
So yeah, that is true.
All right, So Lauria, who came on for Toronto, had a piece of paper, probably from coach Greg Vanney.
And, ah, he gave it to Michael Bradley immediately when he came onto the pitch.
And, um, you know, it's definitely a definitely a word from the coach.
It's so loud inside the stadium that the Michael Bradley probably can't hear his coach, Greg Vanney.
So So Greg Vanney, writing down a note Thio give to Captain Michael Bradley.
The Toronto FC has to be attacking minded.
They have no other choice here.
And, um, I'm just gonna check who Loria went in for cause it was right after that goal was scored.
So you know, Toronto was the better team in the first half, even from the beginning of that second half, but Seattle scored against their on a play.
Then they became the better team and doubled their lead a few minutes ago.
All right, so they don't have it here.
All right, this one played down and it will be just in moral.
We'll just let that one go out of bounds and it will be a Seattle throwing.
And the fans are as glad as they've been.
They are just realizing that their team is so close to winning another MLS Cup trophy.
Nicolas Lodeiro hasn't played it through with the on site.
Shot went wide left of the goal.
Anyways, that could have been the end for sure if he had been on.
And he has put away that chance.
No doubt about it.
He was offsides on the play, all right? Lauren came in for a sore e. Oh, there we go.
I was gonna take note of that own a while ago for Toronto after the goal for Seattle was scored.
Seattle up two to nothing here.
All right, 80th minute 10 minutes plus stoppage time left in this one.
