There wasn't very much particularly attractive about the Seattle Sounders' overall team performance on Saturday against Chivas USA. But it was a continuation of a pretty wild season. Let's look at some of the more interesting numbers:

1: Obafemi Martins moved to the top of the all-time single-season scoring list for the Sounders. His 15 goals are one more than the 14 Eddie Johnson scored in 2012. He also has 17 goals in all-competitions, one less than the 18 Fredy Montero scored in 2011.

3: Clint Dempsey became the third player on the Sounders with at least nine assists across all competitions.

4: Number of goals the Sounders' scored, a total they've reached eight times across all competitions this year. They've done it six times in league play. Both are team records.

5: Lamar Neagle became the fifth Sounders player to score at least eight goals in all competitions this season. That's the best in MLS and a team record.

6: Obafemi Martins goal was the Sounders' sixth from outside the penalty area. They had just one such goal last year.

10: Martins picked up his 10th assist in league play. He's the second player in Sounders history to hit double-digits in both goals and assists.

18: The win was the Sounders' 18th of the season in league play, one away from the post-shootout-era record of 19 set by the LA Galaxy in 2011. The Sounders would need to win their final four games to tie the all-time record.

22: The Sounders have now won 22 games across all competitions. The Galaxy set the all-time MLS record in 2011 with 28 wins.

28: Martins and Dempsey have now combined for 28 league goals, one more than the combined total of Montero and Johnson in 2012. They've also combined for 31 goals across all competitions, two fewer than the Montero and Johnson had in 2012.

49: With two goals allowed, the Sounders have now allowed 49 goals. The most they had ever allowed in a season until this year was the 42 they gave up last year.

57: The Sounders set a new team record with their 57th league goal, one better than the number they scored in 2011.

75: With four more goals, the Sounders now have 75 goals in 35 games across all competitions. The team record is the 82 goals they scored in 2012 which saw the team play 49 games.
