Seattle Sounders 2 Last Match Summary (v Real Monarchs):

The Sounders reserves were beaten by Real Monarchs on Saturday as they took the game away from the Sounders on Sunday. An early goal in the second half pulled the Sounders back in to the match but two quick goals gave the Monarchs a 3-1 win.

Sloppy defending too often gave Real Monarchs the opportunities they needed to capitalize as they pounced when the opportunities presented, taking a win that perhaps flattered them.

Statistical Note: This will be the second match in San Antonio soccer history to involve a former A-League player that isn’t Alen Marcina. John Hutchinson, former captain of the Central Coast Mariners, is an assistant coach at Sounders 2.

Key to the Match: Finishing. Seattle have a decent keeper despite the result last week, and so the key for San Antonio will be to not let their heads drop after saves but to keep plugging away. Also starting each half well is vital as Seattle can pounce early.

Prediction: San Antonio FC 3 Seattle Sounders 2 0
