Sounders v Impact - Referee, Injuries, Suspensions and TV

Bob Levey

Tonight's game will feature the best referee of 2012, no players on the injured list, two suspensions and TV in multiple languages.

At 7:30 PM on Saturday night Silviu Petrescu will blow the whistle to start the first match of the 2013 Seattle Sounders FC campaign. He will be joined by SAR (bench): Darren Clark; JAR (opposite): Kevin Duliba; and 4th: Alejandro Mariscal. Petrescu's MLS record is MLS Career: 58 games; FC/gm: 27.5; Y/gm: 3.6; R: 8; pens: 7.

In Seattle KING5 (the mothership) will carry the match live and over the air. That would be 105, 5, 5.1 or check local providers if they use a different system. Ross Fletcher and Kasey Keller will have the call. 97.3 FM will carry a simulcast and split off analysts for pre/half/post. In Montreal they will be able to watch on TVA. Earlier, at 5 PM Pacific NBC Sports will have D.C. United at Houston Dynamo.

Both Osvaldo Alonso and Marc Burch are suspend from actions in the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs. No Impact are banned from play.

The injury situation is going to be harder to track. Montreal lists no injuries and they are no longer required to do so. Seattle Sounders FC list Patrick Ianni and Andrew Duran as OUT with Shalrie Joseph and Adam Johansson are QUESTIONABLE. Other players have various levels of knocks and fitness issues but the official report only has those four men.
