This week in Sounders gifs: Cascadian Masters

It's a good week to be a Sounder. Starting with a US Open Cup quarterfinal win on Wednesday, the Seattle Sounders capped it off with a second victory against the Portland Timbers as the two matched up in MLS play Sunday night. After a first half that played to a virtual stalemate, the Sounders came out firing in the second half. Obafemi Martins was substituted in and immediately sparked the Seattle offense. Clint Dempsey picked up where he left off before the World Cup by scoring the game winner and Marco Pappa put the game out of reach with a late goal. The win pushes Seattle to 38 points and and a lead of 7 in the Supporter's Shield race. The loss leaves Portland just asking more questions.

He’s a great player and he has had a great career and he continues to play well."

Here's what Dempsey had to say after playing with Martins for the first time in two months.
