Aug 25, 2014, 7:47 AM EDT

On Sunday at Providence Park the Seattle Sounders brushed aside Cascadia rivals Portland, with Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins ripping the Timbers defense apart.

Martins scored twice and set up Dempsey to score as both players ended their lengthy MLS scoring droughts. Chad Barrett scored a beauty to round off the scoring as the visiting supporters celebrated in style in PDX. This season

Seattle are now top of the Western Conference, the Supporters’ Shield and the Cascadia Cup standings, while Portland are embroiled in an almighty scrap for the fifth and final playoff spot in the West.

Watch the video above to relive all the action from yet another exhilarating Cascadia clash. So far in 2014, Seattle and Portland have tied 4-4, Vancouver beat Portland 4-3 and the ‘Caps and Sounders tied 2-2 earlier this year. That trend of goals galore continue on Sunday in another epic Cascadia Cup encounter.

    And once again, Baldomero Toledo was garbage, missing penalty calls at both ends and giving out yellow cards seemingly at random.

      Yeah, it was disappointing to see that level of officiating in what is one of MLS’s marquess match-ups. I thought the two handballs in the first half were fairly obvious, and the mugging of Neagle by O’Rourke (or was it Harrington?) in the second half was ridiculous, and not a one received attention from the officials.
