After their loss to open the season Sounders FC 2 get right back at it. This is the middle game of a three match in nine day stretch. Wednesday's game is also while the first team is getting ready for league play so a few of the nine 1st teamers loaned down are unlikely to be available. Myron Samuel is not back from international duty and so will be unavailable.
Arizona United added two players from 2015's S2 roster - Sam Garza and Duncan McCormick. They are now coached by Frank Yallop - yes, that Frank Yallop. In addition to Garza and McCormick they have Blair Gavin and Long Tan who both were trialists for the first team here in recent years.
Now backed by Diplo Arizona is an independent USL team that is looking for a lasting legacy in the Valley of the Sun. While they aren't expected to pull a Sacramento, they are likely to win games in 2016. This will be a tough test for S2.
