Major League Soccer started in 1996 with ten teams split into the Eastern Conference and Western Conference. The first MLS Cup was won by D.C. United. The league now has 12 teams with a 13th team in Toronto to be added in 2007.

Major League Soccer had a night to remember, with some major milestones reached during Saturday's action.

First up was Clint Dempsey, who became just the second player in Seattle Sounders history to record 50 goals for the club.

The goal was a winner for the Sounders, who have now gone eight matches unbeaten, rolled up 400 minutes without giving up a goal, and moved into a tie at the top of the Western Conference.

“It feels great,” Dempsey is quoted as saying by MLSsoccer.com. “The team moved mountains to get me here when I was playing with Tottenham [in 2013] and I’m glad to chip in with goals and help this team win and do some cool things. I’ve enjoyed my time here but there’s more to accomplish so I’m looking forward to finishing the season strong and trying to repeat [as MLS Cup champions].”

A clever bit of footwork at the top of the box saw the Argentine slice through TFC's back line in the dying minutes. It was just a consolation goal, but the goal pulled Valeri's personal total up to 50, which is good for second all-time in the team scoring charts for the Timbers.

The Columbus Crew also reached an impressive mark.
