VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Fredy Montero scored in the 90th minute to give the Seattle Sounders a 2-2 tie with the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday.

"We have really good players, but we have to be consistent," Montero said. "Sometimes in the game, we were away from the goal. ... But at the end of the day, we have one point."
 
Eddie Johnson also scored for Seattle (7-2-2).
 
Alain Rochat and Camilo scored for Vancouver (5-3-3) in front of a sellout crowd of 21,000 at B.C. Place Stadium.
 
"It's definitely not all doom and gloom, but I just want us to be making strides faster than we are," Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie said. "Today was a chance for us to make that stride."
 
Montero took Johnson's header on the run, lifted the ball around Vancouver captain Jay DeMerit, put it on the ground and fired home a shot from the top of the 18-yard box.
 
"Definitely, I was really happy because that ball went into the net," Montero said. "The goalkeeper got some really good saves. But for the second half, I just really wanted to keep trying to score goals. At the end of the day, I had that one."
