Dempsey Brace Lifts Sounders Past Colorado

Posted:

SEATTLE (AP) - Clint Dempsey scored twice in a five-minute span early in the second half and set up Lamar Neagle's first-half goal to help the Seattle Sounders beat the Colorado Rapids 4-1 on Saturday.

Dempsey leads MLS with eight goals. He has at least a goal or an assist in each of Seattle's last six games. It is the second time in his career that Dempsey has had a six-game scoring streak in MLS, having done it previously in 2005 while with the New England Revolution.

Obafemi Martins added a 75th-minute goal for Seattle. The Sounders have won three straight to improve to 5-2-1. Dillon Serna scored in the 62nd minute for the Rapids (3-2-2).
