Seattle D Zach Scott suspended for 1 game

Seattle Sounders defender Zach Scott has been suspended for one

game and fined after a hard tackle on FC Dallas midfielder Fabian

Castillo.

Scott’s suspension was handed down on Friday. He will serve his

punishment on Saturday when the Sounders face Real Salt Lake with

first place in the Western Conference at stake.

Scott was given a yellow card for his hard tackle on Castillo

near the sideline in the 75th minute of Seattle’s 2-0 win on

Wednesday night. He’s the second Seattle defender to face

suspension this week after Leo Gonzalez was suspended for the

Dallas match after stepping on the leg of a Philadelphia player

last Saturday.
