The Quakes hosted the Sounders in a weeknight matchup with both teams aspiring to play in the postseason tournament. However, it was the visitors that ended up dominating the game with the Sounders winning 3-0. The Quakes were doomed from the start thanks to an early goal from Raul Ruidiaz in the 25th minute. His second tally from the penalty spot 17 minutes later to close the first half, plus an insurance goal from Cristian Roldan in the 49th minute sealed the win for Seattle. Only an own goal from Shane O’Neil gave the Quakes their only tally of the match.
