Seattle Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey was named MLS player of the week for the second week in a row by the North America Soccer Reporters(NASR).

Dempsey is on some what of a tear. The US Mens National Team Captain has scored five goals in two games and leads the league in goals scored with six.

“ I am feeling confident, getting good looks in from of goal and taking my chances, Dempsey said, the most important thing is to get wins and we are doing that right now.”

While Dempsey’s goal’s have come from various spots on the pitch , Dempsey prefers free kicks.

“ I am always looking to take free kicks , I am a little selfish that way, we work on them in practice and we have a lot of guys who are good at taking them, today I felt good and so I took,” Dempsey said after Saturdays 3-2 win over FC Dallas.

Dempsey has recorded at least one point in all four appearances this season, totaling a league-high six goals with one assist.

Sounders FC will conclude the three-game road trip at Chivas USA on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. PT at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media. More information and membership information can be found at http://www.soccerreporters.com/.
