Sounders shock Wizards in penalty shootout

SEATTLE -- Chris Eylander made two saves in the penalty kick shootout and Zach Scott converted the game-winner in the seventh round, giving the Seattle Sounders a 1-0 victory Tuesday night over the Kansas City Wizards in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal game.

Seattle won the shootout, 6-5.

The Wizards of Major League Soccer and the Sounders of the second-tier United Soccer Leagues First Division were scoreless through 120 minutes -- 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of overtime.

The teams were tied at 4-4 through the first five rounds of penalty kicks. They remained tied after the sixth round, then Eylander dove to his right to save Tyson Wall's try in the seventh round.

Scott came up to the penalty spot and drove his shot to the back left corner past Wizards goalkeeper Eric Kronberg.

The win for the Sounders (9-3-8 overall) sets up an all-USL First Division semifinal between Seattle and the Charleston Battery on Aug. 12 in Charleston. The Battery upset FC Dallas in another quarterfinal game on Tuesday, 3-1. The other semifinal will match New England and D.C. United of MLS.

Eylander came up with 10 saves in all. He has not allowed a goal in Seattle's four U.S. Open Cup games this season.
