Sounders Kick Off Season In Dramatic Fashion Before a Drenched Crowd (PHOTOS)

It was a record-setting and rain-soaked crowd of almost 40,000 that showed up for the Sounders’ home opener at Century Link on Sunday, dousing Pioneer Square in blue and green along the way.

Those who weathered the entirety of the 90-minute-plus match witnessed the heroics of Chad Barrett, who scored in the final minute of second-half stoppage time to lift the Sounders to a 1-0 victory. The win brought the Sounders to a 4-2 record in home openers and was an auspicious start to the season, especially in light of the team’s inability to win at the end of last season.
