CASA GRANDE, ARIZ. - Sounders FC concluded the Arizona portion of its preseason training Saturday with a 1-0 win over Chivas USA.
The Sounders’ lone goal was scored by second-year forward David Estrada.
In the 75th minute, Jonathan Prieto got past the Chivas defense and sent the ball to Miguel Montano at the far post. Montano laid it back to Estrada, who finished from in front of the goal.
“It was a play that was created off of energy,” coach Sigi Schmid said. “The guys worked hard. ... Sometimes we give up on plays, and we don’t want to give up on plays.”
The result moves Seattle to 2-1-1 in the preseason and capped two weeks of training in Arizona.
