MOST COMMENTED

[MLS: Week 6] Clint Dempsey followed up on his hat trick at Portland with two goals for the Seattle Sounders in his Dallas homecoming, a 3-2 win at previously unbeaten FC Dallas.

He scored on a free kick in the first half, watched as his pass across the area was deflected into the goal for own goal in the 75th minute and won the game himself 10 minutes later, finishing off a one-two with Chad Barrett.

With five goals over the past two matches, Dempsey set the club record for most goals in back-to-back games. In perhaps his best effort of the evening, a vicious Dempsey volley also rattled the crossbar earlier in the second half.

“It’s always good to perform well in Texas,” he said after the game, "because that's where I developed my game in Nacogdoches and driving to Dallas playing my club ball. A lot of friends and family were here, and it's nice to perform well."

-- U.S. World Cup hopefuls Kyle Beckerman and Maurice Edu traded late goals as unbeaten Real Salt Lake and Philadelphia played to a 2-2 tie at PPL Park. Playing without five injured starters, including Michael Bradley (quad strain) and Jermain Defoe, Toronto FC lost at home to Colorado, 1-0. Also out of action was Brad Davis for Houston, which fell for the third straight game, dropping a 2-0 decision to New England, which suddenly finds itself in fifth place in the Eastern Conference despite its slow start.
