Raul Ruidiaz converted from the spot in the second half to give Seattle Sounders a 1-1 draw with LA Galaxy in MLS action Monday. 

LA’s Oniel Fisher brought down Cristian Roldan in the penalty area in the 49th minute and Ruidiaz beat goalkeeper Jonathan Bond with a Panenka on the spot kick.

That equaliser put Seattle back on top of the Western Conference table on 59 points, one ahead of Sporting Kansas City and Colorado Rapids, while the Galaxy moved up a spot to sixth with the point.

LA had taken the lead in the 19th minute on Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez’s 15th goal of the season, the Mexican star flicking the ball past Stefan Frei with the outside of his right foot. 

Jordan Morris took the pitch for Seattle for the first time since injuring his knee February 20 while on loan to Swansea City.

The United States international came on for Ruidiaz in the 60th minute to get in some match time as he looks ahead to the MLS play-offs. 

Seattle travel to Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday in the final match of the MLS regular season, while the Galaxy host Minnesota United.
