Seattle Sounders collected two away goals but tossed aside a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw with Olimpia at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in Honduras on Thursday.

The first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 tie was driven by Jordan Morris, who had a goal and assisted on Joao Paulo’s sixth-minute opener.

Olimpia leveled through a pair of second-half goals from Yustin Arboleda. The second leg is Feb. 27 in Washington.

The hosts can count their blessings they were allowed to play the entire match with 11 men, especially considering Arboleda leapt studs up into Stefan Frei’s ribs in the first half.

Arboleda and Frei were shown yellows after the incident for arguing in what would be baffling were it not, well, CONCACAF.

Paulo’s goal came on an exceptional bit of work from Morris, who at 25 had not scored or assisted in the CCL across three previous matches.
