Seattle Sounders players Cristian Roldan and Clint Dempsey were named to MLS’s team of the Week for Week 24. The duo were instrumental in helping the Seattle Sounders to a 3-1 win over the Portland Timbers Sunday night at CenturyLink Field. Sounder Captain Brad Evans was also named to the team of the Week as an honorable mention. It was the Rave Greens third consecutive.
Dempsey scored the games first goal with a well struck penalty in the 61st minute and completed the brace in the 80th minute when he made good on a Cristian Roldan pass. Roldan went from passer to scorer in the 83rd minute when he scored from a flick on header pass by Evans. Congrats to our “Team of the Week.”
