The Seattle Sounders won over the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS Cup Playoffs on Wednesday night and the team now advances into the next round of the postseason. The New England Revolution lost to DC United and now DC has advanced out of the knockout round.
Seattle won the match 3-2 over the Galaxy, while United won 2-1 against the Revolution and now those teams will get the chance to play on in the playoffs.
