Wired to win. Wired together.
On Tuesday evening, the Seattle Sounders trounced LAFC 3-1 to eliminate the Black & Gold from the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs for the second consecutive season.
With the entire city of Seattle behind them, the Sounders put on a show as Nicolás Lodeiro, Raúl Ruidíaz and Jordan Morris combined to power the Rave Green past LAFC, booking a spot in the Western Conference Semifinals.
It was an epic evening for the club as the team wrote another successful chapter to its already dominant history in Major League Soccer since 2009. With the Sounders representing Seattle on domestic soccer's biggest stage, the other local professional sports teams rallied around the Rave Green.

Good luck to @SoundersFC tonight! I'll simulate the stadium experience by wearing my scarf and occasionally spritzing myself with rainwater. pic.twitter.com/wB5hL98DJk
