Gallery: Exclusive photos from Seattle’s incredible comeback over New England

Seattle stun New England with late rally to comeback and earn unlikely point at CenturyLink Field

Seattle Sounders produced an incredible late comeback to rescue a point at home to New England Revolution on Saturday, scoring three goals in the final 15 minutes to stun the visitors.

The Revs started well and found themselves 2-0 up through 26 minutes and on course for a first away win of the season. They must have thought they were cruising when Juan Agudelo made it 3-0 nine minutes into the second half, but Seattle weren’t giving up.

Brian Schmetzer sent Harry Shipp on and Seattle started to dominate. Nicolas Lodeiro’s deflected goal on 75 minutes gave the home fans a glimmer of hope, before Will Bruin made it 3-2 ten minutes later.

Then, with just two minutes to go, Osvaldo Alonso headed in from close range to send CenturyLink Field into raptures. Both sides left with a point, but given the manner of the result, New England will have felt like they’d left Seattle with a defeat.
