Sounders break record in win over Kansas City

Clint Dempsey scores 50th Sounders goal to help Seattle beat Sporting KC

Clint Dempsey scores 50th Sounders goal to help Seattle beat Sporting KC

After regaining control of the ball high on the right wing side, Jordan Morris took it toward the end line and floated a cross into the penalty area.

The Sounders had not defeated Kansas City since the 2014 season opener, going 0-4-2 and getting outscored 9-1 since then, including a 3-0 loss at Kansas City on May 17.

"When we made that announcement in the locker room, the first thing (goalkeeper) Stefan Frei did was start pointing and saying, 'It's you guys, it's you guys, '" Schmetzer said. But we think the goalkeeper is the first attacker, and the striker is the first defender. The Sounders extended their shutout streak to 400 minutes, breaking the club record of 379. "There are defining moments when a team has to dig deep and find a lot of character". They haven't allowed a goal in the last three games, and they've scored three or more in four of the last five. The moments that stand out to me are being 3-0 down versus New England and coming back and drawing that game, and being 3-0 down to D.C. United and coming back to win 4-3. The only area I didn't think we were good today was we really weren't risky in the final third. The midfielder said the string of positive results was the outcome borne of a confident team. "We have a lot of depth in this team, we're able to have a lot of competition for spots, we're able to have a consistent lineup but we've had guys who stepped up when they get called, and I think there's still another level to get to". The Sounders finished with a 15-8 advantage in shots.

Dempsey is inching closer to Fredy Montero's all-time club record of 47 regular-season league goals and 60 in all competitions and Dempsey is showing no signs of slowing down. The Sounders' path to the 2016 MLS Cup began with a victory against Sporting KC in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs.
