Sounders serve notice with two-nil win

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Obafemi Martins scored another game winner as Seattle Sounders FC serve notice to the rest of MLS - this is our B+ team and it will crush you.

Goals from Obafemi Martins and Lamar Neagle insured that Seattle Sounders FC would win another home game, another match without a loss when scoring first. There is no doubt that this club, at home, can beat any team in the league. A defense without Djimi Traore managed to hold the best offense in the league scoreless. An offense lacking three United States National Team players scored two against a team that is normally solid defensively.

Michael Gspurning saved a goal or two, but mainly this was an attitude match. The attitude was simple: 'we play better in front of large crowds.' The club was heard.

An MLS team with four EPL players on the bench crushed the league leaders. This was not merely victory to be protected. Sign Schmidt did not just win. He fully understood Real Salt Lake and destroyed them. Their jugular was exposed and the subs were Clint Dempsey and Eddie Johnson.

First place is yours. You were heard.
