Coming off a huge win and today being Memorial Day, you can be excused if you didn't realize the Seattle Sounders were playing the Portland Timbers. Of course, it's only the reserves, but if you've got nothing better to do, you can listen to the game here.
Looks like a few familiar names are in the game for the Sounders, including Fredy Montero. Other players of note are Roger Levesque starting at full back and Miguel Montano and Michael Tetteh in the midfield. There are also three Sounders academy players on their bench.
The Timbers' most notable starter is probably Eddie Johnson, who has not yet made an appearance for the senior team after leading USSF D-2 in scoring last year.
Timbers starters: GK-Brown; D-Braun, D-R. Smith, D-Horst (C), D-Taylor; M-Pore, M-Marcelin, M-Moffat, M-Lopez; F-Johnson, F-Umony. Subs: F-Sp. Thompson, D-J. Gonzalez, M-Ogunyemi
