CARSON, Calif., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Robbie Keane scored twice and added an assist Sunday, powering Los Angeles' 3-0 thrashing of Seattle in the first leg of the Western Conference finals.

Keane broke a scoreless tie late in the first half off a perfect pass from Landon Donovan and then assisted on Mike Magee's right-footed shot at the end of a fast break in the 67th minute.

The Irishman handed the Galaxy a formidable three-goal advantage 3 minutes later, directing Christian Wilhelmsson's attempt into the net.

The Sounders will now need to make up the difference in the second leg of their first-ever appearance ever in an MLS conference final.

That contest is set for Nov. 18 at CenturyLink Field.
