Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders FC were seemingly waiting for the other one to flinch in the second leg of their Western Conference semi-final. As the old cliche goes, it was going to take something extraordinary to break the deadlock. And that's just what we got in the form of Sounders FC's Mario Martinez. Brad Evans started with a give-and-go with Eddie Johnson, passing off to Fredy Montero who chipped the ball onto the run of Mario. Martinez took the ball off one hop and struck a beauty of a volley past the diving Nick Rimando. Boom. Goal celebration dance ensued. Boom. Into the Western Final we go. More dragons to slay.
Dance, Mario, Dance:
