Seattle and Salt Lake played a wide-open game that was full of scoring chances in front of 38,976 at CenturyLink Field, and by the time the fireworks had subsided - the last of them being fired in stoppage time after an Andy Rose game-winner - the Sounders had a 3-2 victory that extended their lead atop the standings.
