Tonight the Sounders Women play their first competitive match of the season at Starfire after picking up a road win against Vancouver in their opener. With the team is the full contingent of national team players, who've rushed back from a friendly with China to take part in the home opener.
This is the middle match in great stretch for Starfire, with the senior Sounders winning the US Open Cup match last night, the Sounders Women kicking off tonight, and the Reserves kick off tomorrow with the potential of a Steve Zakuani sighting.
It's a good night for the first match of the strongest lineup with points on the line, since they'll be taking on one of the division favorites in the Colorado Rush, who have won their first three games and have yet to give up a goal. I expect Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux will have something to say about that by the time the night is over. And if the Rush want to add to their 6 league goals, they'll have to do it through Hope Solo.
There'll be a stream on USL Live, and soundermom and I will have some play by play. #EBFG
