Lodeiro, Eikrem help Sounders end drought, beat DC, 2-1

SEATTLE (AP) - Nicolas Lodeiro ended a 362-minute Seattle scoreless drought in the 57th minute, and Magnus Wolff Eikrem headed in the winner in the 83rd on Saturday night as the Sounders rallied to beat D.C. United 2-1.

Seattle (3-7-2) had not scored since Handwalla Bwana's tally in the 54th minute of a 2-1 win at Toronto on May 9. Since then, the Sounders were blanked by Portland and twice by Real Salt Lake.

The 362 minutes tied a club record for longest dry spell between goals, originally set over the course of six games from July 11-Aug, 9, 2015.

Lodeiro's shot from the top of the penalty-area restraining arc tied the game just four minutes after Darren Mattocks had put D.C. in front. It was the first goal of the season for Lodeiro, who rejoined the team this week after not making Uruguay's 23-man World Cup squad.

Cristian Roldan set up Eikrem's first of the year. He crossed a target ball into the box from the right side. Eikrem met it at the penalty spot and headed it past United keeper David Oustad into the right corner.

The goal by Mattocks in the 53rd minute was his sixth the season for D.C. (2-6-3).
