The Sounders are off the practice pitch for another day. No big news, although we did get some time with Sammy Ochoa, who scored a pair of goals Monday in the 4-3 Reserve League win at Chivas USA. I'll have more on that and more from coach Sigi Schmid later.
Otherwise, I guess the top news again was participation. Fernandez, Gspurning, and Ianni were limited. Schmid repeated that the Gspurning thing could be more illness than injury, but that he is expected to be available Saturday at Chicago.
