2011 starts here for the Sounders FC!
Sounders are wearing green shirts and socks with shale shorts. Vancouver is in all white.
Sorry, missed Mike Seamon in the starting lineup
We are under way with some good play from both sides working the sidelines
I've got about 30 people on the opposite sideline.
We'll be playing three 35-minute periods.
4: Seattle gets some pressure on the right side, but are turned away by the Vancouver defense
5: Mike Fucito forces the Vancouver defense into a turnover, but his pass outside goes away for a Vancouver throw-in.
6: Mike Seamon sends a long ball to Miguel Montano on the right side and Montano plays the ball off his defender for a corner kick. Montano takes the corner and plays it short to Osvaldo Alonso at the top of the box for a shot, but his misses wide left for a goal kick.
8: Vanocuver plays a ball into the box from the left side, but Patrick Ianni heads it away
8: Fredy Montero plays the ball across the field to Steve Zakuani at the top of the box, but Seattle has to reset and Vancouver's defense turns it the other way.
It looks like all of the Sounders in camp will see time today.
9: Vancouver earns a corner kick and Seattle defends it with a long pass, but nobody is there on the other side of it.
The match has been pretty split for possession so far, but Seattle has had a bit more on the attack than Vancouver.
11: A Seattle foul gives Vancouver a free kick on th right side. Patrick Ianni wins the header to knock it clear.
12: Shea Salinas plays a ball into the box from the left side, but it goes through for a Seattle throw at the far side.
13: Steve Zakuani gets some space on the left side, but Mike Seamon's pass comes up behind him and Vancouver takes possession.
14: Davide Chiuminto gets a shot away from the right side, but Kasey Keller dives to make teh stop at the near post.
We've got about 400 following ... thanks for the support.
16: Fredy Montero picks the ball off from the Vancouver defense and plays it wide to Miguel Montano for a shot, but Jay Nolly makes the stop at the near post.
16: Mike Fucito gets clear of the defense, but is flagged offside.
Not likely, though I wouldn't rule it out yet.
Perhaps at the Cascadia matches, but again, too early to tell on live-streaming
19: Shea Salinas crosses it into the box, but it is played over the line without a serious threat and Kasey Keller takes the goal kick.
20: Patrick Ianni muscles his man off the ball and takes it away just outside the box for a nice stop.
22: Osvaldo Alonso picks up a yellow card for a tackle on Gershon Koffie up the left side.
I would not read anything into the lineups today.
There has been some good play between the two so far. Definitely a combo Sigi has liked in the preseason.
We'll have a video recap on Sounders FC.com later this evening.
Davide Chiumiento gets a shot away after weaving through the defense, but Kasey Keller makes the stop.
25: Miguel Montano gets some space on the left side and drops the ball back to Fredy Montero. His ball into the box is picked off by Vancouver though.
29: James Riley makes an overlapping run on the right side and plays a low ball into the box that just misses both Mike Fucito and Fredy Montero and Vancouver clears it.
Neither is listed on their sub list
