SEATTLE (AP) — The intent was for Clint Dempsey to go 65 or 70 minutes and not push too hard in his return from the World Cup rejoining the Seattle Sounders.

Dempsey didn't want an abbreviated appearance. Not against Portland. Not in front of another massive crowd.

Dempsey scored off a wild scramble in the 71st minute, and the Sounders beat rival Portland 2-0 on Sunday night, their second victory over the Timbers in four days.
