With Clint Dempsey and Eddie Johnson starting the game on the bench due to their National Team commitments, Martins and Neagle showcased Seattle's offensive depth. Dempsey and Johnson eventually entered the game in the second half.
"With the minutes that Clint (Dempsey) had played and the minutes Eddie (Johnson) had on Tuesday... we decided, 'Hey, we've been in a good run and they are a little bit tired, let's use them off the bench today,'" Schmid said. "We knew they would participate and help us. Clint was unlucky with a couple of good chances and Eddie was almost in there as well a couple of times...It just shows the depth of our team."
Seattle notched their fifth win in a row and holds a single point edge over Real Salt Lake with two games in hand. The Sounders extended their home unbeaten streak to to 13 games (10-0-3).
