Sounders 3, Toronto FC 2

Will Bruin and Cristian Roldan scored two minutes apart midway through the second half and the Seattle Sounders stayed unbeaten with a 3-2 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday. Seattle knocked Toronto from the ranks of the unbeatens in the only regular-season matchup between the MLS Cup finalists from 2016 and 2017. Bruin scored twice starting in place of injured striker Raul Ruidiaz, and Roldan’s goal in the 68th minute — his first of the season — proved to be the difference. Seattle (5-0-1) is off to its best start in franchise history and set the stage for an important upcoming stretch with two games in seven days against Los Angeles FC. Toronto (3-1-1) entered the weekend having played just four league games and was the only unbeaten remaining in the Eastern Conference. Jozy Altidore scored twice for Toronto.

Impact 1, Crew 0

Harry Novillo scored his first MLS goal to help Montreal beat Columbus. Evan Bush made five saves for his third consecutive shutout for the Impact (3-2-2). Zack Steffen made six saves for the Crew (4-2-1).
