Seattle Sounders FC 2 are on a bit of a roll, having earned 7 points of the last 9 possible, which included an impressive away draw against the league leaders, San Antonio FC. This week S2 faces an easier foe in Reno 1868 FC. Reno’s expansion team has struggled in its first season in the USL and are currently averaging below a point per game. Their struggling defense, which features former Sounder Jimmy Ockford, is letting in more than two goals a game so S2 should be able to put a few in the back of the net.
Reno 1868 are coming off their first win of the season, a 4-0 victory over Phoenix Rising, so S2 should push to score an early goal. If S2 can be ruthless early it should shred any bit of confidence Reno has carried over from their first victory.
