The Seattle Sounders host the Vancouver Whitecaps tonight, in what is being billed as the 50th Anniversary Heritage Match. To help mark the occasion, Kelyn Rowe is being honored at pregame.

The Sounders and Whitecaps last played about a month ago, with Vancouver going home with a 2-0 win. That was the Whitecaps’ last win, however, as they’ve gone 0-2-2 since then. The Sounders, meanwhile, have gone 2-1-1 and are now five points behind the Whitecaps in the Western Conference standings.
