Meanwhile, Didier Drogba may not be so hot on joining Phoenix Rising.


S2 won their first game of the year, keeping Portland Timbers 2 winless through their first three games and improving to 8-1-0 all-time against their southern rivals. We were particularly impressed with Academy player Sam Rogers and First Teamer Zach Mathers.

Sam Rogers and Zach Mathers could probably do with a bit more rehearsal though.

With S2 having such a heavy contingent of Seattle-area natives, it should come as little surprise that the players are well-versed in Sounders lore. Still, we'd never really seen that familiarity play out in a particularly notable way on the field.

After letting a two goal lead slip while up a man, David Olsen atones for early misses with late goal.

This was a topsy-turvy durvy-burvy game which included multiple red cards and missed open nets, the most dangerous lead in soccer, and a late winner. Early on it looked like Seattle Sounders FC 2, perhaps buoyed by their Open Cup win, would run Oklahoma City Energy FC off the pitch.

Both Nouhou and Felix Chenkam made great showings, but it may have been Ray Saari who truly ran the show.

It has been a couple of weeks since any Sounders team has provided a half of soccer that was fun to watch, but the patient were rewarded with a excellent half from Sounders FC 2 down in Carson, California, Saturday night.
