Straight off of a victory over Timbers 2, Seattle Sounders FC 2 head north to try and stretch their lead in the hypothetical Cascadia 2 Cup with a result against Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2. Last season S2 brought something extra against Cascadia opponents, earning 5 of their 9 wins and going 5-2-1. They will certainly hope they can replicate that form against their two biggest rivals this year.
Historically, S2 starting lineups have featured less First Team players when the team is on the road so this week’s XI will probably look more like the one that lost in week 1. They should be able to execute the same defensive gameplan they did against Portland, but someone signed to S2 needs to step up and create chances.

Keys to the Game:
- Settle into the first road game of the season.
- Replicate defensive midfield work that made life difficult for T2 last week.
- Get a goal from an S2 signed attacker
