If last evening wasn't beautiful enough, Starfire should be a wonderful setting for some afternoon footy. As always, admission at Starfire Sports Complex is free with donations accepted at the door (though if you're driving, the five dollar parking spot is mandatory).
Typically, the reserve matches feature the adjoined teams from the day before. Even if San Jose had brought the Sacramento Republic with them, however, they may not have had enough players to put together a full team. Instead, the opponent today is USL Pro side Orange County Blues (formerly known as the LA Blues). It is a team we will likely see more of when the Sounders start a PDL team next season.
Some of the bench players from last night (Andy Rose, Michael Azira, Tristan Bowen, Marcus Hahnemann, Chad Barrett) should be expected in the starting lineup. Cam Weaver, and Sean Okoli may get some minutes as well.
