SEATTLE (AP) — Shane O'Neill scored his first goal since 2014, Will Bruin added a goal and an assist and the Seattle Sounders beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-0 to clinch the club's 13th straight playoff berth.
It's the second longest active streak in North American pro sports, behind the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins with 15 straight playoff berths.
Western Conference-leading Seattle (17-5-6) has won four games in a row.
Nicolas Benezet and Léo Chú also scored for the Sounders.
Vancouver (9-9-10) had its four-game unbeaten streak snapped.
