This baby Cascadia match is destined to be over shadowed by the two trailists (Cillian Sheridan and Myron Samuel - links to brief scouting reports), but is also a key Reserve match between the Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. Seattle has dominated Reserve play displaying their depth by winning all 4 previous matches with a goal differential of five. The match starts at 7PM at Starfire (there is a roof over most seats) and is free with suggested donations. Parking is 5$.
Strong Reserve performances by Mike Fucito and Lamar Neagle earned them both first team time, which should show the rest of these guys that out-playing the Whitecaps will give them a shot at first team time. Sigi also will need to start evaluating the roster for the US Open Cup as the Third Round match is on June 28th.
The Vancouver Whitecaps should have some of their old USL guys playing tonight as Wes Knight and Jay Nolly did not play in their last MLS match.
Lineups will be posted as soon as they are available, below the break you will see our crowd sourced scouting form.
