This week in Sounders gifs: A Deuce Brace, an ObaFlip, a Neagoal, and a backheel montage! (Animated)

Chad Marshall heads the ball back in to Clint Dempsey for the goal

This team is on a roll. Looking for their third straight victory and a return to winning on their home pitch, Seattle Sounders FC also sought to remove the demons of a 5-1 defeat to the Colorado Rapids. After the opening goal by Lamar Neagle right before the end of the first half, it was almost all downhill to three points. The in-form duo of Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins continue to work closer and closer to deliver points during this great run of form.

A nice ball through by Obafemi Martins springs Clint Dempsey whose play sets up an easy tap in for Lamar Neagle:
