  SEATTLE - They have a dynamic scorer and passer, an ageless goalkeeper, the career wins leader among MLS coaches, and some pretty big expectations for a second-year soccer franchise. Meet the Seattle Sounders FC, a team that will be the first-ever opponent today for the Union in their inaugural MLS season. The game, at 9:30 p.m., Philadelphia time, at Qwest Field, will be televised on ESPN2. Let's just say that MLS isn't allowing the Union to ease into competition.

HOUSTON - Chicago's Dominic Oduro scored against his former team to lift the Fire into a 1-1 draw Saturday with the Houston Dynamo.

The Dynamo are tied with the Union for second with 43 points each, a point behind Sporting Kansas City. The Fire (7-8-16, 37 points) extended their unbeaten streak to four games. Toronto 1, New York 1. The Red Bull's Thierry Henry scored the equalizer for the visitors in the 88th minute.

Major League Soccer is based on competitive balance, which is why there are no New York Yankees or Los Angeles Lakers around to devour all competition. It means that the championship in the 16-team league is considered up for grabs and even an expansion team such as the Union isn't being discounted as a potentially competitive squad. Eight teams will make the playoffs. The first two teams in both the Eastern and Western Conferences will earn a postseason berth, along with the four teams with the next-best records.

SEATTLE - The Union's Major League Soccer debut last night went down in a sea of green. Green-clad fans filled Qwest Field, but the bigger obstacle was the opponent in green that gave the Union the blues. Beginning their second season in the same fashion as their first, the Seattle Sounders scored a 2-0 win over the Union in the Philadelphia franchise's opening game. It also was the first game of the MLS season. This one was decided in the first half, when the Sounders jumped to a 2-0 lead.

For almost the entire second half, it looked as if the Union were en route to a 1-0 win that was just like their other wins this season: a combination of strong defense and an opportunistic goal. But in the closing moments, the Seattle Sounders tore up the script. Alvaro Fernandez's header in traffic deflected off the right post and past Faryd Mondragon in stoppage time of the second half to give the Sounders a 1-1 draw with the Union at a rain-swept PPL Park. Union manager Peter Nowak expressed disappointment that his team couldn't finish off the win. "At some point, we need to not be afraid to score a second goal," Nowak said.

WITH THE second of three matches in a week span starting on Wednesday for the Union, there is very little time to go back to the drawing board, as they say. Although it wouldn't hurt. The club comes off its second loss in a row with Saturday's 1-0 result against Seattle. Against a 22-year-old goalkeeper making his first MLS start in Seattle's Brian Meredith, the Union registered just one shot on goal. It also marked the 12th league game dating back to October of last season in which the Union (2-5-1, seven points)

SEATTLE - There might not yet be panic in the Union locker room, but there is growing cause for concern. The Union, once again, struggled mightily in the offensive third and fell 1-0 to the Seattle Sounders in front of an announced crowd of 38,399 at CenturyLink Field. The Union (2-5-1) were shut out for the third time this season and have yet to score as many as two goals in a game. "We talked about it during the week, our guys are a little hesitant to pull the trigger," Union interim coach John Hackworth said.

A torrential downpour and near gale-force winds notwithstanding, there was 90-plus minutes of positives for the Union against Seattle. An edge in possession and physical brawn led to what looked to be a decisive result on the score sheet. There was even a halftime marriage proposal in Section 123. So how did the Union arrive at a balking 1-1 final at PPL Park on Saturday? "I think at some point we need to realize that we don't have to be afraid to score some goals," said manager Peter Nowak in response to a Union side that hasn't tallied more than one goal in MLS games this season.

CHRIS SEITZ, we owe you an apology. Your performance Sunday against Seattle offered a foot-in-mouth moment for your critics. After the first four games this season, some of us considered you a bust. After bad games against D.C. United and Toronto, we considered trading you in for a Knighton in shining armor. At one point, we would've taken Knightman, the lovable, unofficial mascot of the club, with his red, plastic cup and his Elvis shades. At least with Knightman, we know what you're getting.
