Obafemi Martins voted Player of the Week after leading Seattle Sounders' rout in Portland

The Seattle Sounders went on the road and romped the rival Portland Timbers on Sunday, and Obafemi Martins was the key.

Martins scored two goals and assisted on another to help the Sounders to a convincing 4-2 victory over the Timbers at Providence Park this weekend, and he was voted the MLS Player of the Week as a result. (See how the North American Soccer Reporters voted here.) The Nigerian forward beat out New York Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry, who also had two goals and one assist, and Philadelphia Union's Sebastien Le Toux, who had a goal and three assists.

Martins, who is the second Sounders player after Clint Dempsey to be voted Player of the Week this season, set the tone for the impressive win in the 18th minute. He put away a Brad Evans cross before turning into the provider by sparking an incredible counterattack that ended with Dempsey scoring in the 34th. Martins then bagged his brace and put the game well out of reach for Portland in the second half, powerfully dribbling through a number of defenders before slotting a shot past a helpless Donovan Ricketts in the 76th minute.
