Clint Dempsey scores hat trick with two assists from Jordan Morris

Monday August 8th, 2016

Clint Dempsey and Jordan Morris helped lead the Seattle Sounders over Orlando City on Sunday. 

Dempsey scored a hat trick in the 3–1 victory, with Morris assisting on two of the three goals. 

Dempsey’s first goal came shortly after Orlando took an early 1–0 lead. He converted a one-touch finish from just in front of goal to tie the match.

The second goal was assisted by Morris after he and Dempsey got behind the Orlando defense on a 2-on-0 advantage.

In the early moments of the second half, Morris found Dempsey again to stretch Seattle’s lead to 3–1. 

Dempsey had a hat trick for the national team last July in a Gold Cup win over Cuba. His last MLS hat trick was in April 2014.
