Sounders U18s v Montreal U18s Academy Quarterfinals - Liveblog

Mike Russell

The winner of tonight's' match advances to the national finals while the loser goes home.

If there's one thing that has become quite clear to the Seattle Sounders FC community it's that this whole Academy thing can produce great talent worthy of being more than just MLS, but capable of playing on the world's stage. Tonight the next wave of talent that could be members of the first team take on the Montreal Impact U18s.

Seattle's 18s are the baby hydras. Their attack is diverse. A full eight players have six or more goals. Three of those are in double figures.

Nearly every member of the coaching and talent evaluation staff is here in attendance. There are also several hundred fans down here at Starfire enjoying the sun and a favored Seattle side.

This live blog will try to focus on how the players are playing, not the specific soccer situation.
