Seattle Sounders FC 2 have failed to score since their 2-0 home win over Timbers 2 on July 24. So far in August, S2 was defeated away at Sacramento Republic FC before suffering a disappointing 3-0 loss at the hands of Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 for just their second home defeat of the season.
If S2 defend Starfire and post a win at home, they would jump into a tie with two other teams (including the Switchbacks) for second place in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, a win for Colorado Springs would put them clear at the top of the West. A month and a day ago, S2 managed a 1-1 draw at Colorado Springs after Sérgio Mota found the equalizer in the second half.
S2 are fielding a strong lineup for this match, with Sergio returning to the midfield alongside Amadou Sanyang. Pablo Rossi, Sam Garza and Oalex Anderson will look to combine to find the end of the scoreless drought. On the bench today is former Bellevue College keeper and Chilean-American Daniel Faundez, whose signing S2 announced today before the match.
