The Seattle Sounders, the club of T&T midielder Joevin Jones, beat Los Angeles FC 3-0 on Friday night at Century Link Field, Seattle, to move to the top of the Western Conference of Major League Soccer.

The defending champions got a brace of penalties from Nicholas Lodeiro four minutes apart in the first half to take a 2-0 lead at half-time.

Raul Ruidiaz then fininshed off a smart move in the 82nd minute to wrap up a 3-0 win.

The win moves the Sounders above the inactive Sporting Kansas City by a point, to the top of the Western Conference.

Jones,who scored a double in Seattles last game, played 71 minutes of the match before being replaced by Alex Roldan.

The Sounders are coming off a 7-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes, where they broke a MLS record for the fastest time to score five goals in a match (33 minutes).

Seattle were eliminated from the 2018/19 tournament by LAFC, but have now won their last two games against their rivals. 

Jones, 29, has scored two goals and has three assists in nine games for the season.

Seattle Sounders have now won six games in 11 games, racing up 21 points.
