Sounders open preseason friendlies with 5-0 victory over UCLA

Obafemi Martins, Lamar Neagle, Chad Barrett, Kenny Cooper and Micheal Azira all got on the scoresheet as Seattle opened its preseason friendly schedule with a 5-0 victory over UCLA in Walnut, Calif.

Martins opened the scoring 39 minutes in, and Neagle — who slotted in up top alongside Martins with Clint Dempsey still off at national team camp —  added another on the stroke of halftime. Rookie Darwin Jones started on the left wing, while Brad Evans teamed with Chad Marshall in the center of the Seattle defense.

Barrett, Cooper and Azira all came off the bench to score in the final 15 minutes.

The Sounders conclude the Southern California portion of their preseason with a rematch of the Western Conference finals against the Galaxy on Friday.
