Jordan Morris scored his first career hat trick, including the winner in extra time, as the Seattle Sounders defeated visiting FC Dallas 4-3 Saturday afternoon in the first round of the MLS playoffs.

Raul Ruidiaz added a goal and an assist for the second-seeded Sounders, who will next play host to Real Salt Lake -- who were 2-1 winners against Portland -- in the Western Conference semifinals.

Reggie Cannon, Matt Hedges and Bryan Acosta scored for seventh-seeded Dallas, which rallied from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to force extra time.

Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei made five saves -- all in overtime.

The Sounders improved to 12-1-3 against FC Dallas at CenturyLink Field, including 3-0-1 in the playoffs.

Seattle took a 2-0 lead midway through the first half, as Ruidiaz and Morris scored four minutes apart -- in the 18th and 22nd minutes. Ruidiaz scored on a 25-yard blast that skipped off the wet turf and past Dallas goalie Jesse Gonzalez. Morris slipped a 10-yard shot under Gonzalez on a two-on-one break with Joevin Jones.

Cannon pulled FC Dallas within a goal with an unassisted score in the 39th.

Dallas tied it on Hedges' header off a Michael Barrios corner kick in the 64th minute.

Morris gave Seattle a 3-2 lead in the 74th as Nicolas Lodeiro's corner kick was flicked on by Gustav Svensson to Morris, who was being pulled down by a defender about 2 yards out from the middle of the goal. Morris was able to get his left foot on the ball as he was falling backward, deflecting it into the left-side netting.

Dallas tied it at 3-3 in the 82nd minute on Acosta's header off a corner by Reto Ziegler.

Gonzalez made a diving save on a shot by Seattle's Kelvin Leerdam in second-half stoppage time to preserve the tie before Morris broke through in the 113th minute. Gonzalez made five saves.
