Sounders Reserves Top Earthquakes Reserves on Tetteh Goal

Sounders win! Sounders win! Sure, it was in the Reserve League, but there are standings kept so it counts. Most notable of course will be the Michael Tetteh goal late, at least to those browsing the story, but more important to the future for real League play is who plays, and where.

Would anyone accept a season with a Heritage Cup and Reserve League title?

Robert Jonas reported on twitter that the Sounders midfield controlled the game, as well as the Seattle side controlling possession and having a shot advantage, particularly in shots on goal.

Here's the starting lineup.

Jaqua
Estrada
Montano Neagle
Seamon
Carrasco Levesque
Scott Wahl Hurtado
Boss

There is some question as to how it finished, as there is no report as to who went up top at the end, but here's a best guess until the Sounders report is posted.

Noonan
Estrada
Tetteh Levesque
Seamon
Wahl Carrasco Scott
Graham Hurtado
Boss

 

The San Jose Earthquakes release is below the break.

Earthquakes Reserves Fall 1-0 to Sounders FC in San Jose
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Michael Tetteh came off the bench to break a scoreless draw, striking an 87th-minute game winner to give Sounders FC a 1-0 edge over the Earthquakes in Sunday’s Reserve League match at the Nutrilite Training Facility.
 
Tetteh cut in from the left, took a friendly bounce off an Earthquakes defender while trying to dribble to the right and then unleashed a shot that whizzed through the legs of center back Brad Ring and into the net past a diving Andrew Weber.
 
Weber made several quality stops for San Jose and finished with seven saves in his second Reserve League start of 2011. Both sides had their chances at goal with a narrow 13-11 shot advantage for Seattle, but it was Weber that was tested more often with Sounders FC placing eight shots on goal to San Jose’s one.
 
The Earthquakes Reserves return to action on Saturday, April 23 when they host Chivas USA at 4:30 p.m. PT at the Nutrilite Training Facility.
