Sounders reserves in 1-1 draw with UW

The Sounders reserves played to a 1-1 draw with the Washington Huskies this afternoon at Starfire Sports Complex.

The Sounders took an early lead on a Sebastien Le Toux penalty kick and held that lead until about the 75th minute, when the Huskies scored on a direct kick following and handball just outside the box.

After the game, Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said certain reserve players made impressions for good or bad, but he didn't disclose any names.

Schmid also wouldn't say if he plans to make any lineup changes for the Saturday game against San Jose -- other than restoring Kasey Keller to goal after serving his red card suspension.

"Obviously, Kasey's a quality goalkeeper," Schmid said. "Anytime you put a quality player back on the field it's going to make your team better."

It was a glorious day out at Starfire, which Freddy Ljungberg concluded by walking his black Newfoundland pup Amadeus.
