Eddie Johnson put the Sounders on the board after 16 minutes and Lamar Neagle made it 2-0 in the 30th minute.

But then Dallas stunned the hosts by scoring two set piece in seven minutes.

In the 54th minute, Kenny Cooper redirected a long Michel free-kick with a glancing header to claw one back.

Seven minutes later, Michel drew Dallas level with an olimpico straight from a corner.

The 31-year-old Brazilian drilled a corner kick from the right side that went just over the outstretched fingers of Sounders goalkeeper Michael Gspurning and into the far side netting.

But before the crowd could appreciate what had just happened, the Sounders regained the lead through Johnson.

Second-half substitute Obafemi Martins then settled things in the 83rd minute with his third goal of the season.

"You don't want to squander a two-goal lead, but we knew they were dangerous on set pieces," said Sounders coach Sigi Schmid.

"We lost our mark on the first one; and obviously Michel hits a great ball on the second and Michael (Gspurning) got tied up."
