Montero blinder guides Seattle Sounders to first win over LA Galaxy in two years

Seattle Sounders scored their first win over Western Conference rivals LA Galaxy in two years when they recorded a 2-0 result at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday.

Goals from Fredy Montero (first of the season) and Eddie Johnson (second in two games) allowed the Sounders to move to third on their conference table, pushing the reigning champions, who were without David Beckham, down to seventh.

Former Fulham striker Johnson opened the scoring in the 40th minute with a header from Mauro Rosales' rightwing cross to add to his last start finish against Chicago Fire.

The Sounders doubled their advantage three minutes into the second half courtesy a goal of the year contender from Montero who produced a 35-yard piledriver which gave Galaxy keeper Bill Gaudette no chance.

It was the first time in seven outings that Sigi Schmid's men had beaten Bruce Arena's charges with the Sounders now six points off top-of-the-table San Jose Earthquakes with two games in hand.
