Result: Late own goal seals Seattle victory
A late own goal from Gonzalo Segares sees Chicago Fire lose 2-1 at the Seattle Sounders.

Seattle Sounders have cut the gap on Real Salt Lake City to two points at the top of the MLS Western Conference with a late victory over Chicago Fire.

The visitors took the lead in the 24th minute through Mike Magee, who was left with a tap-in thanks to Dilly Duka.

Osvaldo Alonso spurned the chance to equalise from the spot five minutes later after Bakary Soumare had handled inside the area.

However, the Cuban's failure to breach the net was more down to a brilliant save from goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

Despite that setback, Rave Green managed to pick themselves up and go again, with Lamar Neagle sliding home Marc Burch's cross to score for a second successive game.

The game looked destined to end in a draw until disaster struck for the visitors, with Gonzalo Segares turning Zach Scott's cross into his own net with just one minute remaining.
