Tonight the Sounders Women play their final preseason game and once again the US National Team players who've been bringing attention and excitement to the team for the last few months will be suiting up in Rave Green.
In fact it might be the first game that all of those players are available. Last game Alex Morgan sat out with a minor injury and midfielder Megan Rapinoe had yet to join the team. But Rapinoe is now on the squad and we can hope Morgan is recovered, though we haven't received lineups yet. If any number of the nats play the Huskies can probably expect to face what the Falcons and Redhawks faced, which was a lot of goals and not much success on offense. The Sounders outscored those two by a combined 10-0, and I suspect Hope Solo would like to finish the preseason without giving up a goal.
One Huskies player who might not feel too bad about a Sounders win is Lindsay Elston, who plays for both teams. She'll be playing for UW tonight but moves over to the Sounders when the spring soccer season completes next week.
This game will be streamed USL Live, so even if you can't come down to Tukwila you can enjoy this last look at the Sounders Women before the season kicks off on May 27.
