They were two of the last four undefeated teams in MLS entering Week 7, and the matchup between the Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC played out like a heavyweight battle, finishing 3-2 for the home side.
The two clubs, which met in consecutive MLS Cup finals in 2016 and 2017, exchanged first-half goals with their respective target strikers -- Jozy Altidore and Will Bruin -- converting on headers in the span of 13 minutes.
Midway through the second half, Bruin came through with another goal and Cristian Roldan scored a third on a nifty strike just two minutes later.
Then Altidore connected with playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo on a second goal to set up a thrilling finale. First Pozuelo forced Seattle's Stefan Frei into a world-class save and then Laurent Ciman blasted a shot off the left post as Seattle held on for the three points.
