SEATTLE (AP) - Georgios Samaras' penalty and Patrick McCourt's second-half goal gave Celtic FC a 2-1 exhibition win over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.

Samaras came in on a counter in the 30th minute, and goalkeeper Terry Boss tried to cut down the angle, but wound up tripping Samaras, who put the ball in the net anyway.

Referee Paul Ward blew for a penalty, though, and replacement keeper Jordan Jennings came on to watch Samaras sent his kick high into the net.

McCourt made it 2-0 early in the 64th minute on an assist from Milan Misun.

Rookie David Estrada got one back for Seattle when he sent a 22-yard strike from the right side of the box into the upper left corner in the 66th minute, just two minutes after coming on as a sub.
