After a moderately successful inaugural season, Sounders FC 2 needs at least a draw tonight to clinch the final USL Pro Western Conference playoff seed.
S2's 12-12-3 record is remarkably similar to that of the parent club, weighed down by losses in their last four matches taking them from near the top of the West down to their current "win-or-tie-and-in" status. A result tonight would make S2 one of two 2015 western Expansion teams to make the playoffs in their first year along with Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. They would also be the only new western MLS affiliate club to achieve that feat, as Portland Timbers 2 and Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 have already had their playoff fates decided.
With a pair of games left, all the Aztex have to play for is distance from the Western Conference cellar. Their 30 points in 26 games sits them just above Real Monarchs SLC, ironically at the bottom of the pile.
