Seattle Sounders FC 2 are down in south Texas to compete against the league leading San Antonio FC for the second time in less than a month. S2 made a valiant comeback attempt against San Antonio in their previous match up this year, and were perhaps unlucky to not level the score in the game’s closing minutes. This match is going to be even tougher. San Antonio have been blowing teams out at home this season [insert metaphor or anecdote about The Alamo or something]. S2 also had the help of three First Team field players the last time the sides met. They are unlikely to have any First Teamers with them tonight, though that might be a good thing; the S2 and Academy players have won the last two without much help.
Billy Forbes is still the primary danger man for San Antonio. S2 will need to be disciplined in the back to limit his chances on counters. San Antonio recently signed former S2 player Mark O’Ojong. The Cameroonian has yet to feature for San Antonio but SBnation writer Kyle Mahnke, who covers San Antonio, thinks their is a good chance O’Ojong at least makes the 18. O’Ojong was S2’s best player last year so if he makes an appearance he is one to be very wary of.
