Clint Dempsey does some Dempsey stuff and scores his first Sounders goal. (Animated)

Clint Dempsey scores his first goal as a Sounder

The wall may have been breached but we held the miracle mile. With playoff seeding on the line, the Seattle Sounders FC and LA Galaxy drew 1-1 Sunday night at CenturyLink Field. Clint Dempsey finally opened his Sounders goal account, redirecting a Lamar Neagle cross with the outside of his right foot back into goal. That lead held until the 78th minute when Robbie Keane pounced on a short clearance to tie the match up.

Lamar Neagle crosses a ball into Clint Dempsey and Deuce does the rest in a way only Deuce would:
