Seattle Sounders 1-0 San Jose Earthquakes: Martins scores stunner

Seattle Sounders 1-0 San Jose Earthquakes: Martins scores stunner

Joe Nicholson

The Nigerian was at it again, scoring a classy goal to give the Sounders a win.

Another goal from Obafemi Martins lifted the Seattle Sounders to a 1-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.

Matins' goal came inside the eight-minute mark when he took Gonzalo Pineda's lofted pass first time to chip the keeper from an impossible angle.

The early goal would prove to be enough as Seattle held on for the win, the club's sixth in the last seven matches. The result sees the Sounders move back to the top of the Western Conference with 25 points from 12 games played.

For San Jose, the loss keeps the club in the bottom half of the Eastern Conference with 10 points from 10 matches.
