SoundersWomen Open Against Oregon State

Brigit Reder - Defender - SoundersWomen.com

In today's preseason match-up, there are a lot of roster spots yet to be filled for the Seattle Sounders Women. So this game isn't so much about the score line, as it is about seeing who will work the best for this version of the team. That said, I'm sure we are all anxiously waiting for a win for any Seattle Sounders team.

The Seattle Sounders Women will once again be wearing the X-Box Rave Green. There are some familiar faces on the roster, if you followed the team last season. Lindsay Elston will once again be in the midfield, Annie Sittauer will be on the back line and Allie Beahan will be racing in the front. Isabel Farrell is on the team, but unavailable to play today, as are Rachel Mercik and Shannon Woeller due to NCAA rules. Also missing will be Hannah Brewer, who is an Australian U-20 player. She isn't here yet, but is on her way.

Team Preview Video


The 12 woman roster is:

Forwards: Allie Beahan
Mids: Sarah Campbell, Lindsay Elston, Isabel Farrell, Rachel Mercik
Defenders: Hannah Brewer, Genessee Daughetee, Brigit Reder, Annie Sittauer, Shannon Woeller
Keepers: Megan Kufeld, Erin McNulty

Ladies to watch:

Brigit Reder, a central defender with 11 goals. She just missed the cut this season for the NWSL Western New York Flash. She brings a solid work rate and nose for goals (yes, even as a central defender) to our back line.

Striker Sara Campbell is just learning the forward position. She had been a central midfielder, but is all upside when she gets the new position worked out.

Keeper Erin McNulty should be the starting keeper this season. But Megan Kufeld is certainly capable. I expect both to get playing time.

M'ily Reiter is a midfielder that should have no problem making this team. Expect her to tear it up tonight.

Tafara Pulse and Niki Bonnell are both trying to make this team once again, and should be on the pitch trying to prove their worth. Experience and calm should help both shine.

Megan Lindsay is a forward that should also see playing time tonight. She has quality finishing skills and can slip behind the lines for cleanup.

As for Oregon State University, the SSW have to shut down their star, Jenna Richardson. If they can keep her considerable skills quiet, then the win should come. She has played for SSW Coach Hubert Busby Jr, so he might have an answer up his sleeve for her.
