Caledonia AIA Vs. Seattle Sounders, 2012-13 CONCACAF Champions League: Fredy Montero Stays Hot

There might not be a hotter player in North America than Fredy Montero. The Seattle Sounders forward scored his eighth goal in his past seven competitive matches in a 3-1 victory over Caledonia in CONCACAF Champions League Group Stage on Thursday. Montero now has 15 goals across all competitions, including two in CCL play.

Montero's goal was not necessarily the Sounders' most important goal of the night, but it did relieve some significant pressure as it came just three minutes after Caledonia had cut their deficit to 2-1 on a Kareem Joseph penalty.

As he's been making a habit of doing, Montero once again found himself with an opportunity in the penalty area as he took a pass from Alex Caskey and calmly poked redirected it inside the far post in the 70th minute.

Caskey had a goal to go along with his assist, scoring the Sounders' opener with a similar shot as the one Montero scored. In first-half stoppage time, Caskey took a ball that Zach Scott had won on a slide tackle and pushed it inside the far post.

Scoring the Sounders' other goal was Sammy Ochoa, who now has six goals in a little more than 500 minutes of playing time across all competitions. He, too, has scored in both CCL matches. His goal came in the 61st minute off an assist from Montero.

The Sounders remain atop their group with six points and a +4 goal-differential in two matches. Caledonia was effectively eliminated from the tournament, with just one point with just one match left to play. The Sounders' final two matches are against Marathon, who can't afford to lose either match.
