Seattle Sounders 1-0 Sporting KC – Things just got very interesting in the West. Saturday’s night’s result saw the Sounders move level on 37 points with SKC at the summit of the Western Conference. Houston Dynamo’s win then saw them also move onto 37 points, leaving a three-way battle for top spot.
Seattle knew they needed to beat Sporting Kansas City on Saturday. And Clint Dempsey was the man to deliver the goods, with the attacker netting his 50th Sounders goal to settle the game.
Dempsey’s first-half header proved to be enough to hand SKC their first defeat in 10 MLS outings. Both sides are now level on 37 points with 10 games to go.
