When Seattle Sounders 2 and LAG II met earlier this season it was the first match where S2 looked like they could be a much better team this season. If they want a repeat of that victory, they will need different players to step up. The two stars of the show in SoCal are unlikely to get significant time: Felix Chenkam is recovering from injury and Nouhou is likely playing with the depleted First Team this weekend. Irvin Parra has done well to pick up the scoring slack with Chenkam out and it will be key for him to provide some solid holdup play tonight.
Since the sides met in Carson, Los Dos has only managed only one win and look to be the 2nd weakest of the “2”s, ahead of only the truly terrible Timbers 2. S2 are certainly favorites tonight. Los Dos are averaging less than a goal a game, so a steady defensive performance should be all that is needed to keep LAG II off the score sheet. If S2 can score early, that may be all she wrote for Los Dos.
It is Bike Night at Starfire. Those who arrive on non-motorized two wheel vehicles will be rewarded with those weird little balls of ice cream, sometimes known as Dippin’ Dots.
