Colombian stiker Fredy Montero continued his torrid pre-season campaign by scoring two goals to help lead the Seattle Sounders to a 3-1 victory in a 70-minute pre-season match against Argentine club Estudiantes on Friday. The match was Seattle's first of its stint in Argentina.
Montero came on as a halftime sub and promply helped spark the Sounders attack into action. Estudiantes opened the scoring in the 20th minute, but Seattle responded with three second-half goals, the first coming from Nate Jaqua.
It's all good news coming out of Seattle lately, especially following word that the Sounders have already sold more than 20,000 season tickets for the 2009 season. That figure is easily more than any other team in MLS has, and is also more than the Seattle Mariners have heading into its season (The M's are projecting to sell 14,000).
What do you think of Seattle's pre-season victory? Is Montero starting to look like he could have a Juan Pablo Angel-like impact on the Sounders? Are you amazed at the 20,000 season-ticket mark?
