SPORTS BRIEFS: Roldans’ 2 goals leader Sounders to win

BMX results from Lincoln Park

CARSON, Calif. — Cristian Roldan scored his first two goals of the season, Jordan Morris added a goal and an assist, and the Seattle Sounders beat the LA Galaxy 3-1 on Sunday night.

Morris ran onto a long rolling ball on the left side by Nouhou Tolo, worked his way to the near post before slipping a pass to Roldan for the sliding finish from point-blank range to open the scoring in the 12th minute. It was the 25-year-old midfielder’s first goal since scoring twice against LA on Sept. 1, 2019.

Seattle (7-3-3) has won three of its last four games.

Morris outran Rolf Feltscher to get to a through ball by Nicolás Lodeiro and then tapped a side-footer in the 38th. Roldan slipped behind the defense and ran onto an arcing pass by João Paulo and lofted a chip shot over goalkeeper David Bingham near the top of the box into the net to make it 3-0 in the 61st minute.

Sebastian Lletget scored in the 88th for LA (4-6-3), which has lost three in a row and is winless in its last four.

The Sounders were without Raul Ruidiaz, who was suspended for one match and issued an undisclosed fine for violent conduct against Portland Timbers defender Pablo Bonilla early in the second half of Wednesday’s game. Ruidiaz went into Sunday with eight goals this season, third-most in MLS.

Stefan Frei had four saves, including a stop against Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez from close range in the 41st minute, and a diving stop of a shot by Cristian Pavón in the 65th.
