Obafemi Martins turns and fires into Chicago's goal for the early lead.
Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire matches at Toyota Park are always a bit dramatic, and the last match before the World Cup break proved to be no different as Seattle managed to hold on to beat Chicago 3-2. Obafemi Martins was the man on fire in the first half missing a difficult open net, scoring a goal, scoring on a penalty, and getting a straight red for 'violent conduct.' Lamar Neagle scored the third Sounders goal which should've been the clincher, but Chicago would not go quietly into the night. It came down to Stephen Frei making several huge stops down the stretch to secure all three points, keeping the Sounders at the top of the table going into the break.
