Davis Strawn and Jordan Jones also scored for the Victory, who led 2-0 before being forced to play with 10 men from the 77th minute when Jamoy Stevens received a second yellow


Seattle scored goals in the 82nd and 87th minutes to pull even, the second on a remarkable bicycle strike from distance by Ramon Ramos.

Vancouver is 6-3 with five league matches remaining, and improved to 5-0 at home. The Victory travels to Yakima United on Saturday for a 6 p.m. match
