Sounders Reserves a win away from clinching division

The Rave Green reserves have methodically won their first seven matches (of ten total) and have almost mathematically reached the West Division title. They have won four of those seven in the friendly confines at Starfire, but not always emphatically. In fact, the Sounders have only twice (in seven) managed to defeat another reserve team by more than a single goal. The names of the two teams the reserves defeated and more stats after the jump. 

The Sounders defeated the reserves of the Portland Timbers 2-0 at Jeld-Wen Stadium on May 30 and then beat the Vancouver Whitecaps, at Starfire, 2-0 a week later. The other five reserve games were one goal affairs. All of the results are listed below.

The table for the Western Division Reserves (more updated than the last time I checked the MLS website).

Nothing has been announced regarding the rescheduling of the postponed game from 4/10 @Chivas USA. I am guessing it will be during the Sounders trip back to LA on October 22nd to play the MLS game.
