2016 Team of the Week (Wk 22): Sounders trio find rhythm in Orlando

The Seattle Sounders will need to make a historic run if they have any hope of making the playoffs this season – and they got off to a good start on Sunday.

Clint Dempsey scored all three goals for the Sounders in a 3-1 win over Orlando City SC, but he had some serious help from two of his teammates.

Jordan Morris and Nicolas Lodeiro each had two assists, with Lodeiro playmaking from the midfield and Morris laying it off to Dempsey for easy finishes.
