Another week, another come from behind victory. After a start that included giving up a very early penalty kick, the Seattle Sounders took all three points behind a goal by Lamar Neagle and a Clint Dempsey - Obafemi Martins combination for goal. The buildup for the game-winner featured a 10-pass sequence by the Sounders and was punctuated by a classic ObaFlip goal celebration. While Seattle have yet to show us the "complete" game we'd love to see - this team is sure fun to watch.

ObaFlip, the SoCal version

After a Dan Kennedy mistake, Lamar Neagle pounces on the redirected ball by Clint Dempsey for Seattle's first goal:

In slow-motion, it appears the ball flicked in by Deuce at least hit Chad Marshall in the upper thigh region before it reaches Neagle:

These are always fun: a 10-pass sequence that leads to Obafemi Martins' game-winner:
