The Sounders are playing the Vancouver Whitecaps right now. You can follow along at SoundersFC.com.
Probably more revealing than the final score is Sigi Schmid's first starting lineup: G Michael Gspurning; d Adam Johansson, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, Jeff Parke, Leo Gonzalez; M Mauro Rosales, Osvaldo Alonso, Brad Evans, Alvaro Fernandez; F Fredy Montero, Mike Fucito. That looks like a real starting lineup. If it is, I don't see any real shockers, although I guess Gonzalez and Fucito merit hmmms.
Here's the lineup for the second segment of the three-segment session: G Andrew Weber; D Wes Feighner, Zach Scott, Andrew Duran, Marc Burch; M Mike Seamon, Servando Carrasco, Andy Rose, Lamar Neagle; F Sammy Ochoa, David Estrada. Top hmmm, I guess is Weber in goal.
And here are the starters for the third and final segment: G Bryan Meredith; D Amadou Sanyang, Tim Pontius, Harlinton Gutierres, Ever Alvarado; M Cordell Cato, Andrew Vanzie, Alex Caskey, Jason Banton; F Roger Levesque, Babayele Sodade.
Never miss a local story.
Sounders say Steve Zakuani, Christian Siveback and Patrick Ianni were held out for precautionary reasons.
Final result: Seattle 1, Vancouver 1. Sounders goal came from Sounders and Whitecaps score one goal each over 120 minutes of soccer. Seattle goal by Servando Carrasco.
