Obafemi Martins chips it over Dan Kennedy for a goal

In a game that saw a bizarre own goal by Chivas USA and the famous Obafemi Martin's flip, the Seattle Sounders FC got 3 points to hopefully put the team back on the front foot.

The opening goal by Obafemi Martins may have been punctuated by his trademark celebration, but the calm finish and the beautiful passing that lead up to the goal is what we will remember the most. After winning the ball back at the midfield the Sounders keep possession of the ball stringing together passes that eventually springs Martins into the opening. After receiving the through ball from Lamar Neagle, Martins calmly chips it over Chivas GK Dan Kennedy who is helpless to do anything about it as it rolls into the net.
