What a great weekend of soccer in Seattle. It starts with the greatest rivalry in US soccer when Portland Timbers 2 head to Starfire Sports to lose to Seattle Sounders 2. It's an excellent idea to train T2 about their place in American soccer. Tomorrow has the Reign hosting Western New York and the second greatest rival for Seattle - the LA Galaxy.
The kickoff for this not-really-Cascadia-Cup-2 match is at 7:30, but the party starts whenever you head to Odin Brewery or Starfire.
What to Watch:
- Pablito - The set-piece specialist can change games. His role on the field is still coming together and he may not start. He can still change a game.
- Lineup - Several of the borderline members of the 1st team's 18 will probably play for S2 and that impacts Sunday against the Galaxy.
- USL "Not actual Cascadia Cup" - S2 already thumped the Thundercaps. A repeat of that would be nice.
