Seattle is locked in a battle with the Los Angeles Galaxy for the MLS Supporters’ Shield that goes to the top team in the regular season. Both teams had 60 points coming into the weekend — the Galaxy play at FC Dallas on Sunday — and meet home- and- away on the fi nal two weeks of the regular season. The Sounders had hoped to get a leg up by beating Vancouver and things looked good when they decided to open up CenturyLin­k Field to full capacity Friday. In home games with more than 40,000 in the stands, the Sounders were 11- 0- 3. They got 55,765 on Friday night, the most ever for a game featuring Vancouver, but 96 per cent of them left disappoint­ed as the high- scoring Sounders were shutout for just the fi fth time in 2014.
