Jordan Morris has hat trick, Sounders outlast Dallas FC 4-3
Jordan Morris scored in the 113th minute to complete a hat trick in the Settle Sounders' 4-3 extra-time victory over FC Dallas on Saturday in the first round of the MLS playoffs.
Raul Ruidiaz, who had scored Seattle's opening goal, took a shot from 8 yards in front that was blocked. The ball deflected into the air, and came down toward Morris, who was positioned at the top left corner of the 6-yard box. Morris' header bounced off the turf and into the left side of the net. It was Morris' 13th goal of the season.
Twice, the Sounders had the lead, only to see Dallas come back and tie. Ruidiaz scored in the 18th minute and Morrisin the 22nd to put Seattle in front, 2-0. Ruidiaz's goal was his 12th and ended a six-game scoring drought. He had not scored since tallying twice in a 4-3 victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sept. 1.
Reggie Cannon cut Dallas' deficit in half in the 39th minute with his second of the season. Then, a header by Matt Hedges off a Michael Barrios corner kick tied it at 2-2 in the 64th. That also was his second goal.
Morris scored his second of the day to put the Sounders up 3-2 in the 74th. But just eight minutes later, Dallas got level again, this time off a header by Bryan Acosta, his third goal of the season.
The Sounders advanced to the West semifinals against either No. 3 seed Real Salt Lake or No. 6 Portland.
