Seattle Duo Martins & Dempsey Down New England

Obafemi Martins opened his Major League Season (MLS) account on Sunday as Seattle Sounders sailed past New England at the CenturyLink Field.

Martins doubled Sounders’ lead four minutes to the break, when he got in the end of a Tyron Mears in swinging cross and tucked in with aplomb.

Strike partner Clint Dempsey opened scoring from the penalty spot and then rounded off the scoreline from close range from the Nigerian’s pass in the 67th minute.
