So the Sounders Reserves played against that club from that city to the south today.
For me though the conversation from this is really about the depth that Adrian Hanauer has assembled thus far. Sure there are a few rookies on the pitch (ok, four all at wide positions - Karkas, Brown, Zakuani and Nyassi), but there of the center four (Ianni, Wahl, Sturgis, King) there is a ton of experience
King has 11 starts and 13 appearances as a sub with 3 goals in MLS and related competitions.
Sturgis has 35 starts and 2 subs with zero goals
Wahl with 32 and 6
Ianni with 30 and 21 and a goal.
Levesque has four appearances
Kevin Forrest never made an appearance last year in MLS related play (League, Playoff, Open Cup, SuperLiga, etc)
The starters in a Reserve match carry 80 starts and 49 substitutions in their history and five goals. Only three of these players could be called regulars with the big club.
The substitutes on the other hand had even more experience.
Vagenas came on as a sub in a Reserve game. He carries 211 and 28 with 17 goals.
Ely Allen was also a sub had 12 starts and a sub with one goal.
Taylor Graham another sub with 19 and 24 and a goal.
