Sounders 2 lineup in Open Cup short two players

Sergio Mota still starts after he double kicked a man in the nuts during the last USL match. Overall the lineup is weak, with only two loanees starting (Damion Lowe and Victor Mansaray). Academy standout Saif Kerawala starts in net for Seattle Sounders FC 2. The bench is Duncan McCormick and four Academy players. Yes, that means they are two short of an 18.

Real Salt Lake's lineup is stronger than S2's squad. Jaoa Plata is starting as well as Luis Gil. But it is mainly rotational and reserve players due to injury and international callups.

That bench is brutal. S2 needs an early lead and some good fortune to pull this one off.
