Sounders 2 Lineup vs Real Monarchs- A return to doughnuts and Rossi

Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

S2' lineup tonight looks very similar to what we saw in Arizona and what you would expect with who is available. Charlie Lyon the obvious starter at keeper after being named to the USL Team of the Week last week. Frano will slide to RB without Oniel Fisher. Aaron Long will start in the middle with Ashani Fairclough still not ready for the the 18.

Kitsap Pumas Loanees Nick Hamer and Mike Ramos will start in the midfield along with Amadou Sanyang and Sam Garza. Pablo "Free Kicks" Rossi will start as the withdrawn forward and Andy "Doughnuts" Craven as the target man. Choong Lim will start at LB as the lone academy player in the lineup.

The Sounders bench only has four on it tonight: RJ Noll as a backup keeper, Hiroki Kobayashi (a Kitsap loanee), Lorenzo Ramos (an Academy product), and Victor Mansaray who traveled with the 1st team to Philadelphia but was an unused sub. Important to note, not a single substitute is a defender. The academy did have playoffs which is why a large portion of them, that we typically see on the bench, are unavailable.
