WATCH: Ilsinhoooooo

It's an Ilsinho game, folks. The midfielder has struck again, picking up Haris Medunjanin's through ball on the breakaway and calmly beating Earl Edwards Jr., who will be seeing the Union's No. 25 in his nightmares. Ilsinho now has two goals and an assist on the day, bringing his season goal and assist totals to six and five, respectively.

Fafa was the star of the first half, scoring two goals and assisting another. His second goal came in the 38th minute, when he was played in by Scott Sutter's horribly misjudged header. Picault picked up the ball 25 yards from goal before dribbling right at Earl Edwards Jr. and slotting it through his legs.

Just minutes after he put the Union ahead, Ilsinho had a hand in expanding the lead to two. After picking up a through ball from Marcus Epps, the Brazilian lifted a ball onto the head of Fafa Picault. The diminutive winger soared over Scott Sutter to nod home his sixth goal of the season.

The man can score goals. 17 minutes after coming off the bench, Roland Alberg has scored his seventh goal of the season and put the game beyond doubt. What a goal it was, too. After initially holding off two Sounders in the corner, Alberg dribbled to the edge of the box before lashing the ball on net. Stefan Frei got a hand on it, but could only send it off the far post and in.

WATCH: Epps gives Union the lead

Marcus Epps was only added to the starting lineup moments before kickoff, but he didn't appear the slightest bit unprepared. The rookie, who benefitted from Chris Pontius's pre-game abdomen injury, found the net in the 28th minute. After picking up a wonderful ball from Ilsinho, the right-footed winger took a few touches before finishing with his left. The goal is his second of the season.
