Sounders v Vancouver Whitecaps - Gamethread

KONG 6/16 has the 7:00 PM match. There's also a rare appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle, which is neat. More neat would be 3 points for a Cascadia Cup and a stronger chance that the Supporters' Shield.

I like trophies. I like the big. I like the small. I like them shaped like cups. I like them as large platters. I like them in bronze. I like them in gold. Finally, I admit it. I like shiny things.

That's what tonight is about doing. Bringing a shiny thing home and setting Seattle Sounders FC up for another. Seattle will need strong performances in attack from two players not putting the traditional numbers up lately - Dempsey and Neagle. The defense will need to fold in on itself and continue to keep Camilo under pressure. The newest Sounder will need to show that he's starting to understand this system and his new teammates. If Seattle can do two of those three things they will take home a point, a trophy and with three points get a shot at a big silver platter.
