Clint Dempsey ties Sounders career goals record

New, 5 comments

Strike against Chicago Fire pulls him even with Fredy Montero on the all-time list.

Max Aquino / Sounder at Heart

SEATTLE — It has taken almost exactly nine months to do it, but Clint Dempsey has finally tied Fredy Montero on the Seattle Sounders’ all-time scoring list. The goal was a big one, too, as the Sounders were trailing the Chicago Fire 1-0 at home on Saturday when he put away Will Bruin’s pass from point-blank range. It was Dempsey’s 47th regular-season goal for the Sounders.

The drought was the longest of Dempsey’s career, spanning 12 appearances over two seasons. He made nine starts in that time, taken more than 40 shots and had been red-carded twice.

To be entirely fair to Dempsey, he had scored four non-regular season goals since his goal on Sept. 27, 2017 against the Vancouver Whitecaps, including three in the playoffs last year. His most recent goal was against Chivas in CONCACAF Champions League on March 7. He now has 57 in all-competitions, three behind Montero.
