Sunday's afternoon match between two Cascdia rivals' second teams won't have quite the passion that full Cascadia Cup matches do. Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 essentially moved their PDL side up to the USL, so while this is their first match of the USL era it is not entirely new for the organization. Seattle Sounders FC 2 beat the Republic to start their season a week ago. Tonight's 4 PM match is a bit more difficult as the 1st injury woes robbed S2 of needed talent.
What to Watch:
- Who plays - Several players from S2's inaugural match were in Frisco last night. How will Ezra Hendrickson find bodies for this week's match.
- Rossi's set-piece magic - the young Argentine may be the best striker of a dead ball to ever wear the Rave Green. That includes players like Montero, Rosales, Pappa and Ljungberg. Yes, this is a repeat.
- Craven's passionate running - Can the full effort man turn his defensive energy into a goal.
- The Homegrowns - Kovar and Mansaray played against Dallas, but Darwin Jones and Duncan McCormick can still make an impact for the Two
