Deuce's Double Helps Sonics Sink Timbers In Cascadia Cup Clash

At Seattle:

Clint Dempsey scored twice (PK-61', 80') and Christian Roldan once (83') as the Seattle Sounders defeated the visiting Portland Timbers 3-1 in Sunday Major League Soccer action which also happened to be the latest installment of the Cascadia Cup.

Fanendo Adi scored the Timbers' lone goal in the second minute of second-half stoppage time.

The victory, played in front of 53,302 fans at CenturyLink Field, was the Sounders' third straight as their unbeaten run since Brian Schmetzer replaced the ousted Sigi Schmid has stretched to four games.

For Portland, who have now dropped four of their last five contests, they will face Seattle again next Sunday at 2:00 PM Pacific Time (ESPN), this time at home.
