The Seattle Sounders came into the 2014 with high expectations, and the past few weeks have shown them to be a team very capable of meeting these expectations.
The hottest team in MLS continued to roll this past weekend, as the dynamic duo of Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins led the way yet again, this time in a 4-1 thumping of the Colorado Rapids. The victory not only moved Seattle into first place in the Western Conference, it also earned them SBI MLS Team of the Week honors.
Dempsey and Martins combined to score three of Seattle’s four goals, with Dempsey helping set up the fourth in a match the Sounders blew open after a scoreless first 45 minutes of action. The victory pushed Seattle’s winning streak to three in a row.
