Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) – Marshawn Lynch rushed for two first-half touchdowns, Bruce Irvin tipped and intercepted Derek Carr’s pass and returned it 35 yards for another score and the Seattle Seahawks beat the Oakland Raiders 30-24 yesterday. The Seahawks won their second straight behind a strong first half, three field goals from Steven Hauschka and a defense that made Carr look like a rookie.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Klay Thompson scored 29 points, including a go-ahead jumper with 8.7 seconds left, and the Golden State Warriors defeated the Trail Blazers 95-90 last night. The victory gives the Warriors three straight wins to open the season – their best start since 1994-95 when they opened 5-0. LaMarcus Aldridge had 26 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Blazers, who dropped to 1-2.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) – Osvaldo Alonso scored in the 54th minute, and the Seattle Sounders tied FC Dallas 1-1 in the first leg of Major League Soccer’s Western Conference semifinals last night. FC Dallas opened the scoring when Michel converted a penalty kick in the 34th. The Sounders host the second leg of the total-goals series on Nov. 10.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Marcus Mariota says the Oregon Ducks refuse to let the loss to Arizona last month define their season. With a 45-16 victory over Stanford on Saturday night, the Ducks further distanced themselves from that loss but remained at No. 5 in the AP Top 25 yesterday. The College Football Playoff committee will decide if Oregon deserves to be among the top four tomorrow.
