Comments: The Trans-Atlantic Challenge Cup was a round-robin tournament established in 1980. John Doyle yellow carded in the 85th minute though we have no note of him in the team - probably came on as a sub at some point [source].
Charlie Nicholas put the Celts 1-0 up in 21 minutes. Jeff Bourne scored both goals for the Sounders. Seattle had beaten Southampton 3-1 in their first match. Celtic were beaten 2-0 by Cosmos on the same day.
