Photos by Scott Butner of the Seattle Sounders during the 1977 NASL season - including the Soccer Bowl defeat to the New York Cosmos at Portland’s Civic Stadium. Butner was 19 at the time, working for a photography studio contracted by the Sounders - in this interview with goalWA.net, he explained the challenges of shooting at the Kingdome:

“Mostly, I remember that shooting in the Kingdome was like taking pictures in a bat cave. Very dark, very cavernous. It was always such a treat to get to shoot a game outside for a change, where there was light, and weather, and sometimes even mud! All the things that made soccer photos more interesting.”
