Sounders earn a 1-1 draw on Marshall’s Late Goal at Houston
HOUSTON (AP) — Chad Marshall scored in the 94th minute to give the Seattle Sounders a 1-1 tie with the Houston Dynamo on Sunday.
Marshall buried the finish from a behind the 6-yard box after Oalex Anderson's cross deflected off goalkeeper Joe Willis and defender Raul Rodriguez. The final whistle blew shortly after the ensuing kickoff to give Seattle (1-3-1) its first draw of the season.
Giles Barnes scored for Houston (1-2-2) in the 35th minute. He was facing away from the ball when Jalil Anibaba made a pass, turned around in time to see it coming his way and improvised a 15-yard turnaround flick that looped into the upper left corner.
Willis had five of his six saves in the second half, stopping Clint Dempsey's attempt in the 92nd minute.
