Obafemi Martins’ winner, set up by Clint Dempsey, up for MLS Goal of the Week

The Clint Dempsey-Obafemi Martins partnership has seemingly been talked about ad nauseam the past several weeks, and that connection came up big again Saturday as Dempsey set up a lovely Martins’ winner in Seattle’s 2-1 comeback against Chivas USA.

The 81st-minute winner is up for MLS Goal of the Week, an award Dempsey claimed last week for his free kick in Dallas. Check out the nominees below.

In other MLS awards, here are the Save of the Week nominations. Also, Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando won Player of the Week for his huge saves in a shutout win against Portland. Had Dempsey won Player of the Week for his two assists, he would have been just the second player in league history to win three in a row (joining Thierry Henry, Weeks 3-5 in 2012).
