Seattle had done enough to win the group and advance with its two earlier wins but was looking to remain undefeated through group play, while Academy SC Select was coming off two draws earlier in group play. Neither side made good of any chances in the first half but it was Academy SC from the Cayman Islands, who edged ahead in the 45th when Cody Ebanks found the back of the net much to the elation of the home crowd, which was further delighted when Rohelio Wright scored for the second time in the tournament to double his team’s lead two minutes later with a free kick from about 35 yards out. A series of substitutions brought fresh legs onto the field for Sounders, who pulled within one when Azriel Gonzales converted a penalty kick in the 51st minute, shortly after entering the game. Three minutes later, Gonzales ensured his team would no longer trail, beating Amal Bell in the Academy SC goal for the second time. Further pressure continued by Sounders, who nearly took the lead when Camilo Santiago struck the post with about five minutes left. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.
