By the Numbers: Dempsey slicing Timbers

Nothing too crazy this week, just a lot of rivalry stuffs.

4: Stefan Frei has posted four shutouts in the Sounders' first seven matches. A year ago, Frei needed 14 matches to get to four shutouts.

5: Clint Dempsey has now registered a goal or assist in all five matches in which he's played this year. Dating back to last season, Dempsey has registered a point in 14 of 16 matches.

6: Dempsey has now scored six goals against the Portland Timbers, a record during the MLS era. All of those goals have come in the last four meetings, coincidentally the last four times the Sounders have played Timbers since getting knocked out of the playoffs. Roger Levesque still holds the all-time record, though, with nine goals. Fredy Montero (8) still has the MLS record in Cascadia Cup matches.

8: Dempsey and Obafemi Martins have combined to score eight goals, tied for the most among any two MLS teammates. Kei Kamara (5) and Justin Meram (3) have eight for the Columbus Crew.

11: Through seven games last year, the Sounders had allowed 11 goals. This year, they've given up five over the same number of games.

14: Through seven games last year, the Sounders had scored 14 goals. This year, they've scored 10.

25: Dating back to their first meeting in 1975, fully one quarter of Sounders-Timbers matches have ended 1-0.

36: This marked the 36th time in his Sounders career that Zach Scott has faced the Timbers. Obviously, most of those came when he was in the USL.

180: The center back duo of Zach Scott and Brad Evans has not allowed a goal in 180 minutes together this year.

10,644: Sounders fans donated $10,644 to victims of the Nepal earthquake.

41,451: The announced crowd of 41,451 was the Sounders' largest of the season and the win improved their record to 15-1-3 in front of crowds of at least 40,000.
