SEATTLE (AP) – Tyson Wahl and Alvaro Fernandez scored six minutes apart late in the first half Sunday to rally the Seattle Sounders to a 2-1 victory over the New England Revolution.

The Sounders (8-4-7) won their season-high third straight game and are unbeaten in their last six (4-0-2). The Revolution (3-8-6) are on a seven-game winless streak (0-5-2) since a 1-0 victory at home against Vancouver on May 14.

Wahl’s first career goal pulled the Sounders into a 1-1 tie late in the 34th minute. On a direct free kick to the right of the penalty area restraining arc, he launched the ball over a six-man New England wall, and it went just under the crossbar into the top left corner.

Fernandez gave Seattle a 2-1 lead midway through the 40th minute with his fourth goal of the season. Playing 8 yards up from the goal line in the left side of the box, Fernandez took a short through ball from Roger Levesque and sent a shallow shot toward the far post. New England goalkeeper Matt Reis got a hand on it, but couldn’t stop it.

The Revolution scored 2 1/2 minutes into the game when Sainey Nyassi drilled in a shot off Benny Feilhaber’s corner kick for his first goal of the year.
