BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Obefemi Martins scored twice before his first-half ejection, Lamar Neagle added the winner and the Seattle Sounders earned their league-high 10th victory, beating the Chicago Fire 3-2 Saturday night.

The Sounders (10-3-2) stopped Chicago’s unbeaten streak. The Fire (2-4-8) had tied their last two matches.

Seattle midfielder Neagle scored on a screened shot from the left side to make it 3-1 in the 78th minute.

The Fire’s Harry Shipp cut the lead to 3-2 four minutes later on his second goal of the night.

Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei stopped Juan Luis Anangono from 12 yards in the 88th minute to preserve the win.

Martins, who had missed an open net in the fifth minute, beat Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson in the 31st and 38th minutes. He was ejected for an altercation with the Fire’s Benji Joya seconds after Shipp scored his first goal in the 41st minute.
