Welcome to the IMG Soccer Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where the Sounders FC will meet Florida Gulf Coast University in the final game of their trip to Floirda. Kickoff is set for 1 pm Pacific (4 pm Eastern).
It's a bit cloudy and windy today, the last full day in Bradenton for the Sounders.
@Robinswood That is what I'm anticipating, yes.
@alex yepez Should be starting this game ... we'll see.
@jamie He has been working out here at IMG for a couple of months and looks pretty fit.
@YNWA The Atlante game is closed-door ... so no TV on that one. I haven't heard anything either way on the Jaguares match.
@Nicole On MLSsoccer.com's Matchday Live - that's really the best way to get live feeds of every match.
@Tom Harlinton Gutierres is still with the team.
I'm not sure if I will get a lineup from FGCU, but I will do my best.
@if EJ scores... can you... I'm not sure of the pricing. It wouldn't have this match ... just regular season.
FGCU kicks off and we are under way, as they quickly earn a corner kick by pushing up the left side.
2: Christian Sivebaek pushes up the left side, but is taken down for a foul near midfield.
2: Sivebaek gets up the left side again, but loses the ball away for a goal kick.
@watch Not this game, no.
3: Great ball by Zach Scott to sneak David Estrada in behind the defense up the right side, but Estrada's cross is slowed by the strong wind and is headed clear.
6: David Estrada pushes up the left side into the box, but Nathan Ingaham snags his cross, intended for Eddie Johnson at the far post.
@humberto Sivebaek is on the left. He'd have to beat out Fernandez or Rosales to start on the wing, but I could see him starting quite a few games in our busy schedule.
9: Seattle works up the left side and earns a corner kick.
11: William Morse gets a shot away from 24 yards out, but misses it just wide for a goal kick.
11: Eddie Johnson takes a pass with his back to the goal 40 yards out, dribbles up the middle, works a quick step-over, then shoots a left-footed shot inside the far post for a goal. Sounders FC 1, FGCU 0.
14: Eddie Johnson flicks a header forward for David Estrada, who leads Christian Sivebaek into the box and Sivebaek is taken down for a PK.
14: Christian Sivebaek shoots a right footed penalty inside the left post while the keeper dives the wrong way for a Seattle goal. Sounders FC 2, FGCU 0.
16: Marc Burch pushes a long cross from the left side for the far post, but it drifts wide for a goal kick.
@Casey He uses his speed to get up the line.
19: Christian Sivebaek takes a pass from Servando Carrasco up the left side, jukes his defender and rolls a cross to the middle, but it's deflected away for a corner kick.
19: Andrew Duran gets his head to the corner kick, but it skips into the arms of the keeper.
23: Marc Burch runs on a ball 23 yards out on the left side and nearly puts it inside the far post, but it goes just wide for a goal kick.
27: Christian Sivebaek picks off an attempted clearance, but lifts his shot from the top of the box just over the crossbar for a goal kick.
28: Eddie Johnson loops the ball over the defense and Cordell Cato runs onto it in the box, shooting past the goalkeeper, but hits the crossbar. David Estrada dives in to knock the rebound home for a goal. Sounders FC 3, FGCU 0.
29: On the goal, Eddie Johnson pulls up holding his hamstring, but walks off the field under his own strength. He is replaced by Sammy Ochoa for the final minutes of the period for precautionary reasons.
30: There is the final whistle of the first period.
