Dempsey Debut Ends In Victory For Sounders

Seattle Sounders

Clint Dempsey garnered most of the headlines ahead of his home debut for Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday, but it was Eddie Johnson who made the biggest impact by scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over the Portland Timbers.

With Dempsey’s first two appearances for Seattle coming on the road, fans flocked to CenturyLink Field to witness the American international’s first home match as a Sounder – the attendance figure of 67,385 was the second largest stand-alone crowd in MLS history.

“At the end of the day,” said Dempsey, “I thought we had more quality and we deserved to win.”
