Seattle once again witnessed their prodigal son, Jordan Morris, shine brightly. With four goals in the last five games, Morris has not only reignited hope among Sounders fans but also redefined his leadership role in the team's attack.

Morris proved to be the difference maker from the outset. At the 28th minute mark, he outjumped the opposing defense and expertly headed in Albert Rusnák's free kick, sending the ball into the back of the net and paving the way for Sounders' 2-0 victory.

Paul Rothrock, Morris's teammate, didn't hold back in praising his performance. In post-game statements, Rothrock highlighted not only Morris's decisive contribution to the scoreline but also his ability to positively influence the team in crucial moments of the game.

His presence on the field brought renewed confidence to the Seattle Sounders, who hadn't seen such a convincing victory since April, when they secured a 5-0 thrashing over CF Montreal. For Morris, the priority is clear: "I'm happy to score goals, but even happier for the team to win. I'll continue giving my all to help the team whenever I'm on the pitch," affirmed the player.
