Seattle Sounders Women begin a long road trip tonight at 7:30 in LA facing the LA Strikers a second time. This game will be streamed live on USL-Live and on the radio as well. Once again 1150AM KKNW will be broadcasting the Sounders Women away games with Jon Billings behind the mic.
The Sounders Women will be on the road from June 5th to June 16th. The first three games will be against California opponents; the LA Strikers tonight, Santa Clarita Blue Heat on June 7th, and the power house Pali Blues on Sunday, June 9th. They head out to Colorado after that, to face the Colorado Rapids Women on June 14th and finish this long run against the Colorado Rush on Sunday, June 16. They will have faced all but one division opponent after this trip. They will face their final division rival upon their return. The Bay Area Breeze are a fully professional team that is new to the W-League this season. That game is at Starfire on June 21 at 7:00PM.
The Sounders go into this road trip with a 1-0-1 record, sitting in second behind the Pali Blues. The SSW should have been able to win the game against the Rush last Friday, but they just couldn't get the finishes that they needed. They salvaged the point though, and will have had the chance to tighten up the defensive line and the combination of Melissa Busque and Lindsay Elston up top. This road trip should be a great test of their team depth, and their fortitude.
