Montero rocks Sounders camp with six-goal day

Fredy Montero went OFF today in California, scoring six goals over a series of 8 v. 8 matches! The Sounders broke up in to teams of eight and rotated with shortened fields and smaller goals. Montero's six were scored on regulation-sized goals. (Read a recent Seattle Times feature on Montero here.)

As posted in the TNT Sounders Insider:

1st game: Purple-v-Blue ended in 0-0 draw, with Blue holding field on coaches decision.

2nd game: Orange defeated Blue, 1-0, on goal from Montero drop-in over the head of Eylander.

3rd game: Orange defeated Green, 1-0, on goal from Montero holding ball inside box and delivering lower-right past Dragavon.

4th game: Orange defeated Blue, 2-0, on two goals from Montero. The first came on an Eylander penalty inside the box for tripping. The second came on a tackle from Nyassi, stripping the ball from Adam West, and passing to a running Montero, who delivered on one-touch lower-left.

5th game: Orange defeated Green, 3-0, on two goals from Montero and one from Nyassi. The first came on a Montero one-on-one with Dragavon, faking left and going center. The second came on from a Ezra Hendrickson assist over the top of the defense to Nyassi on the right side, and shot left for the goal. Montero scored the final goal of the game on a pass from Alonso lower-right.

6th game: Purple defeated Orange, 1-1, on a penalty shootout. Alonso assisted on Montero’s seventh goal of the day. Brad Evans scored the equalizer from 20 yards, shooting from the left side upper-right. Two stops from Guppy in the shootout secured the Purple win.

7th game: Green defeated Purple, 1-0, on a Oliveira cross to Caugherty, who went lower-right past Guppy.
