[MLS: Week 14]The Seattle Sounders will enter the World Cup break with no less than a six-point lead in the Supporters' Shield race thanks to a 3-2 win at the Chicago Fire. Obafemi Martins had two goals to give him eight on the season before being sent off in the 42nd minute.

Fellow Nigerian Fanendo Adi added to his growing reputation with two more goals for the Portland Timbers, who ended their 11-game winless streak against Real Salt Lake with a 3-1 victory in Utah. Adi, acquired on loan from FC Copenhagen, has four goals and two assists in five games.

The Sounders now lead RSL by seven points in the Western Conference. New England will move to within six points of Seattle in the overall standings with a win over New York on Sunday.



-- Jermain Defoe, overlooked for England's World Cup team, scored his from fourth goal in four games, from the penalty spot, since the roster announcement to give Toronto FC a 1-0 win over San Jose.

-- Vancouver extended its unbeaten streak to a record seven games when Pedro Morales scored his sixth goal of the season in the 81st minute to give the Whitecaps a 3-3 tie at Philadelphia.

-- Casey Conorhad two goals and Cristian Maidana assisted on all three goals as the Union came back from 2-0 down to take a 3-2 lead it could not hold.

-- The D.C. United-Columbus game, the second game of the doubleheader at Fedex Field after the Spain-El Salvador friendly, ended 0-0. Steve Clark’s penalty save on D.C. striker Fabian Espindola's penalty kick preserved the draw.
