FULL-TIME: The Seattle Sounders overcame a 2-0 deficit to force penalties but ultimately fell in the 11th round when Stefan Cleveland had his attempt stopped and his counterpart Matt Bersano converted his.
The Sounders got second-half goals from Jimmy Medranda and Fredy Montero.
The Seattle Sounders are back at Starfire Stadium for the first time since 2017, facing off against a familiar foe in the San Jose Earthquakes. Although the Sounders have historically been one of the best teams in U.S. Open Cup play, they come into this match riding a three-game losing streak that dates back to a 2017 loss to the Earthquakes.
Unlike previous years, though, the Sounders won’t be calling in any Tacoma Defiance players to bolster their lineup. That doesn’t mean we should expect a first-choice lineup, necessarily, but it will at least be made up entirely of first-team players.
Absences: Injury, international duty and suspension
OUT: Xavier Arreaga (concussion protocols), João Paulo (ACL tear)
OUT: Gilbert Fuentes (personal); Judson (left knee); Chofis (left upper thigh)
