Readers choose Martins Open Cup Final Man of the Match

Catch up on reader player ratings, and cast your ratings for Wednesday's loss at FC Dallas.

Drew Hallowell

Sounder at Heart readers chose Obafemi Martins as Seattle Sounders Man of the Match for the U.S. Open Cup victory in player ratings for the game.

Martins received a score of 7.69 from reader for the game, edging out Stefan Frei's 7.64 and Clint Dempsey's 7.60 for the highest score in reader voting.

The ratings were far, far worse for the loss in an MLS game in Harrison New York, where three players finished below a 4 in reader ratings and three more finished below a five as the Sounders lost to New York Red Bulls.

Read on to see the community ratings from those two games, and to register your ratings from Wednesday night's loss in Frisco, Texas, to FC Dallas.
