SEATTLE, Wash. — If Clint Dempsey keeps scoring like this and the defense keeps pitching shutouts, the Seattle Sounders are going to be pretty darn hard to beat.

Dempsey scored his team-leading 10th goal of the season and the Sounders posted their fourth straight shutout — running their streak to 400 consecutive minutes without allowing a goal — and at least temporarily moved to the top of the Western Conference standings courtesy of their 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.

No matter what Clint Dempsey does for the rest of his United States national team career, he's never going to completely wipe Landon Donovan from the record books. But with his goal on Saturday against Costa Rica, Dempsey did move one step closer to diminishing Donovan's place in history by tying the USMNT's all-time scoring record.
