Red-hot Dempsey scores again

Clint Dempsey did it again.

Dempsey scored another goal for Fulham, tallying the opener in the Cottagers' 1-1 draw with West Brom on Wednesday. Costa Rican international Bryan Ruiz slipped Dempsey a pass inside the area, and the American turned and finished with a right-footed strike in the 69th minute to add to his current run of form.

Dempsey's day could have been even better, too. He had a first-half goal called back for being offside, and he very nearly had second goal later in the match, but he misfired on a header from the edge of the 6-yard box off a corner kick that would have given Fulham another lead after West Brom found an equalizer.

For Dempsey, the goal was his 16th in all competitions this season and his 10th in league play. He is two league goals shy of the single-season record for an American in the Premier League — a record that he set last season — and he has scored 11 goals in his last 13 matches in all competitions for Fulham.
