Today S2 travel north to test their mettle against first-in-the-west Whitecaps FC 2. Despite having played a midweek match against Arizona United, many of the Whitecaps key starters will be well rested for today’s match, having sat out the team’s loss in Arizona.
The Whitecaps like to pressure throughout the pitch, so S2 will need to make sure to keep their heads in possession. S2 will have to do so without ex-captain Andy Craven, who was recently waived by the organization. New S2 signing Irvin Raul Parra is unlikely to make a showing today due to a small injury suffered during the week.
