SEATTLE (AP) — Gyasi Zardes scored in the first half to give Columbus the lead, but Seattle's Raul Ruidiaz scored on a second penalty-kick attempt midway through the second half as the Crew and Sounders played to a 1-1 draw.

The match was overshadowed by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and the Seattle area serving as the epicenter of the virus in the United States. Zardes scored in the 33rd minute to give Columbus the lead. 

Ruidiaz scored late in the second half after his first penalty attempt was saved. Video review ruled Columbus goalkeeper Eloy Room came off his line early and Ruidiaz didn't miss the second attempt.
