This Week in Sounders Gifs: Pappa, Dempsey, and Oba combine for a beauty of a goal. (Animated)

New, 27 comments

Clint Dempsey converted his own penalty early and Obafemi Martins headed in the second goal. But Deuce, Oba, and Marco Pappa saved the best goal for last in the 3-0 win over New England.

Obaflips are back!

The Seattle Sounders FC put on as complete of a performance as we have come to expect in their 3-0 rout of the New England Revolution. A first-half penalty converted by Clint Dempsey opened the scoring and a second goal from Obafemi Martins set the tone by halftime. But the real beauty came in the second half, when Marco Pappa, Clint, and Oba combined for some of the prettiest passing you'll ever hope to see and Dempsey walked in his second of the match. It is something to behold.

Penal penal penal!
