In a Western Conference showdown between a pair of perennial powerhouses mired in slow starts, the Sounders trounced the host Galaxy, 3-0, on Sunday at the StubHub Center to snap a three-game winless streak.
The Galaxy, on the other hand, sputtered from the start in their fifth loss in seven matches, ending up on the wrong side of an Ashley Cole own goal while generating few scoring chances.
