The Seattle Sounders started off slowly early on in the 2013 MLS season, very slowly (scoring only three goals in their first six MLS Matches). Their League record stood at 1-3-2 during that stretch; they also went 1-2-1 in CONCACAF play, scoring four goals during those games. In other words, it was not exactly how any soccer team would want to their League season.
Well, the Sounders have managed to turn this season around and are now rapidly rising in the Western Conference standings. In fact, the Sounders are currently one point behind the Colorado Rapids in the standings and are very much still competitive in the Western Conference race.
The Sounders resurgence is thanks to an increased offensive output that has seen the team scoring more goals. In their last four MLS games, the Sounders have outscored their opponents 11-4 and gone 3-0-1 in that stretch. This four game stretch is primarily the reason the Sounders are not in a massive hole early on in the season.
There is still a lot of time left though, and it will be fun to see how this season develops.
