Dempsey Scores As Seattle Beats Portland 2-0

Clint Dempsey scored for Seattle off a wild scramble in the 71st minute in his return to Major League Soccer after the World Cup, and the Sounders beat rival Portland 2-0 on Sunday night, their second victory over the Timbers in four days. Dempsey and Obafemi Martins were both denied by Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts earlier in the sequence with sprawling kick saves. The ball eventually landed at the feet of Gonzalo Pineda and his diagonal pass found Dempsey open in front of the net for his first goal with Seattle since April 26 against Colorado. Dempsey was kept onside on the play by Portland's Will Johnson. Seattle defeated Portland 3-1 in extra time in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Cup last week and moved 10 points clear of second place Real Salt Lake in the MLS Western Conference with the victory.
