Dempsey drop a brace to stop the Caps in their tracks

The Seattle Sounders take the series on aggregate scoring 2-0 against the Vancouver Whitecaps. Coming into the game at a disadvantage (0-0) the Sounders found help from USMNT superstar Clint Dempsey as he woudl get the brace with a go-ahead goal in the 56th minute and the clincher int hte 87th.

The Sounders would defend their MLS title in this tense game with a suffocating defense that would hold former Sounder legend Fredy Montero at bay. Center backs Chad Marshall and Román Torres held the visiting Caps to only one mere chance in the second half which would come on a second-half header from midfielder Christian Bolaños that was easily gobbled up by Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei.
