Clint Dempsey with a sweet turn and finish to equalize

The Columbus Crew have had the better of the play so far, but the Seattle Sounders still find themselves equal after Clint Dempsey had this sweet finish from about 26 yards out.

Up until this sequence, Dempsey had been struggling to get into the match as the Crew had the Sounders pretty well pinned back. But he only needed a couple touches and the smallest amount of space in order to fire this shot inside the near post and beat Steve Clark.

The goal also tied Dempsey for the league lead with six goals. Kei Kamara, who scored earlier for the Crew, and Obafemi Martins are the co-leaders.
