Dempsey to Seattle Official, Sounders Cruise 3-0

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Obafemi Martins and Eddie Johnson scored first-half goals while the home fans were still buzzing about the arrival of Clint Dempsey and the Sounders beat FC Dallas 3-0 on Saturday night.

           

After two days of speculation, Dempsey was unveiled as the newest Sounders star during a pregame ceremony.

           

Then his new club went out and ran its unbeaten streak at home to nine straight games, the longest in franchise history.

           

Dempsey's transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Seattle was made official when he unzipped his sweatshirt to reveal his new rave green jersey just before kickoff.

           

 That set off a celebration that continued with early goals from Martins and Johnson. The addition of Dempsey should only make Seattle's offense more potent.
