Sounders in sole possession of first place

Last week, first place was a shared distinction with FC Dallas.

This week, first place is an honor held solely by Sounders FC. Seattle four-game winning streak has the team atop the Western Conference standings and also first in the Supporters’ Shield race. The Sounders’ 20 goals, 21 assists, 54 shots on goal and plus-seven goal differential are best in the league, as well — not to mention 167 fouls suffered, in which case we should say “most” not “best”.

On the individual front, Clint Dempsey is still first in goals (8), shots (34) and shots on goal (15). Obafemi Martins is tied for the assists lead with four. Chad Barrett, believe it or not, is first in goals per 90 minutes at 2.14. Stefan Frei‘s win percentage of 67 is tied for first.

Here is a look at the standings in the West:
