Obafemi Martins gives Sounders 1-0 lead

Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey seem to be playing their own little game of "whatever you can do..." much to the pleasure of Seattle Sounders fans. Martins just passed Dempsey's 2015 goal total, bagging his fifth of the season off a perfect pass from Marco Pappa.

Martins slipped a bit, which is probably why he chose not to pass to a wide open Dempsey. But full credit to Martins, who managed to recover and still beat New York City FC goalkeeper Josh Saunders despite there being virtually no angle.
