Seattle Sounders take down reigning champions Monterrey

Seattle Sounders managed an upset of sorts when they defeated reigning CONCACAF champions Monterrey 1-0 at the Estadio Tecnologico on Tuesday night.

The MLS outfit netted the only goal through Alvaro Fernandez in the 38th minute to down the Mexicans on their own turf and the magnitude of the result was not lost on Sounders midfielder Brad Evans.

"Bottom line, that's what championship teams are made of," said Evans. "You win when it's tough. You win when it's easy. You win when you're not supposed to."

The win put the Sounders on top of Group D with two wins from two and head coach Sigi Schmid was over the moon after the match.

"To come into Monterrey and win gives our team confidence as we go into games in the future," said Schmid.

"Obviously we left some very important players on our team at home because of the amount of games that we play. So to win with the team we had we are very, very pleased."
