New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Sounders FC striker Clint Dempsey was voted Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 6 of the 2014 MLS season on Monday.

After scoring a hat trick in a 4-4 draw with Portland last weekend, Dempsey followed up that performance with a two-goal effort in a 3-2 Seattle victory over FC Dallas on Saturday.

The United States international scored on a 35-yard free kick in the 22nd minute to level the match at 1-1, while it was Dempsey's cross that was redirected into his own net by Dallas defender Stephen Keel in the 75th minute to even the contest at 2-2.

Dempsey then snatched all three points for his team in the 85th when he exchanged passes with Chad Barrett and fired home the return ball to give him a league-leading six goals on the campaign and his second straight MLS Player of the Week honor.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from the North America Soccer Reporters (NASR). The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
