One of the most appealing aspects surrounding a reserve team is that it offers immediate response to a poor result. While nothing that happens on Sunday can fix the stoppage time goal that equalized Saturdays match. By no means will the Sounders be obvious favorites, with many key pieces of their depth chart having seen action this week. However, the reserves have already shown their quality, most notably in the preseason Diamond Cup tournament.
It will be an excellent opportunity to see some of the playres that haven't made their way into the starting lineup early in the season. That includes one or both of Seattle's 2013 draft picks, Eriq Zavaleta and Dylan Remick. Also look for David Estrada and Lamar Neagle to get their first action of this winter-spring.
Starfire is always a party, and while the stadium will be especially busy with fixtures this year, there's no reason not to make the trip and get even more Cascadia action.
