SEATTLE (AP) - Lamar Neagle, Obafemi Martins, and Leo Gonzalez scored in the second half, and the Seattle Sounders beat FC Dallas 3-0 on Saturday night to move back atop the MLS standings.

Late in the 55th minute, Neagle took a pass from Brad Evans, went to the left side of the penalty area and drilled a 20-yard shot into the far right corner past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy for his third goal of the year.

Martins, who entered in the 61st minute and wore a facemask to protect his surgically repaired broken nose, made it 2-0 midway through the 73rd minute. Gonzalez scored in second-half stoppage time for his first of the season.

The Sounders (9-4-2, 29 points) moved one point in front of D.C. United atop the table. D.C. plays at Orlando City on Sunday.

Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei earned his league-leading eighth shutout.

Dallas (6-5-4, 22 points) is winless in its last five games (0-3-2).
