Dempsey scores twice, sets club record

LONDON, ENGLAND (AP) -- Clint Dempsey scored twice as Fulham ended Bolton's recent revival with a 3-0 victory at the Reebok Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The American striker opened the scoring with a 30-yard free kick in the 25th minute and headed a second in the 45th to extend the London side's advantage.

Dempsey's double took him to 15 Premier League goals this season, surpassing Louis Saha's club record of 13 set in 2004.

Dempsey has 21 goals overall this season.

The Nacogdoches, Texas native has scored 48 goals in the English Premier League, which is the best all-time for an American born player.
