Celtic trialist scores in Sounders reserves win

Halftime: 2-0, Sounders.

And we used the break to discuss Sheridan with Sounders technical director Chris Henderson:

"He’s been a little bit tired from the long flight, but you can see tonight some of the things he offers," Henderson said. "He’s good in front of the box and I think we want to limit his minutes to make sure he’s fresh and we can take a good look this week. We’ll have other trialists come in. In the next three or four weeks we’ll have a lot of players coming in that we’re looking at, and he’s one of them. We don’t want to make a determination after one practice and half a game, but it’s good to see that he’s connecting with players and I think tonight has been good."

26th minute: Sounders go up, 2-0, this time with a header from Roger Levesque.

Eighth minute: Irish trialist Cillian Sheridan puts the Sounders reserves ahead, sliding home a cross from Miguel Montano.
