SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Sounders failed to deliver on coach Sigi Schmid's victory guarantee, tying the New England Revolution 0-0 on Saturday despite dominating most of the play.

In remarks to reporters Friday, Schmid promised that the Sounders (0-3-2), off to the worst start in the five-year history of the franchise, would win for the first time this season.

The Sounders have scored only two goals, and both of those scorers — Eddie Johnson (hamstring) and Brad Evans (calf) — were sidelined with injuries Saturday.

New England (1-2-2) has gone without a goal for four-plus games totaling 388 minutes since scoring in the 62nd minute of a season-opening 1-0 victory at Chicago on March 9.
