The Seattle Sounders went into B.C. Place and took down Cascadia rivals Vancouver 2-0. It was more than enough to take the top spot in this week's MLS Power Rankings...
1. Seattle Sounders (+2)
The Sounders' depth has revealed itself this season, especially in midfield. But on Saturday, it was forward Chad Barrett stepping in for the injured Obafemi Martins and delivering two clinical finishes to grab three points over Vancouver. Seattle defended smartly as well.
2. New England Revolution (no change)
Chad Barrett scored his first two goals of the season and the Seattle Sounders beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0 on Saturday.
Starting in place of the injured Obafemi Martins, Barrett scored in the fourth and 38th minutes to help the Sounders beat their Cascadia Cup rivals for the first time in six tries.
A former teammate of Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson when the two were with Toronto FC, Barrett opened the scoring after taking a pass from Clint Dempsey and moving in alone on goalkeeper David Ousted.
