The final score of the reserve game was 4-0 Seattle Sounders over Seattle Wolves FC. I was told one goal was an own goal. The other three that I saw were all in the second half and were as follows:
1. Kevin Forrest from Jess Semnacher (a Seattle Wolves player who came on as a second half sub for Steve Zakuani).
2. Greg Howes (former USL Sounder) from Evan Brown.
3. Howes (didn’t get the assist).
I’m not certain if Howes is a trialist or what his situation is, but the guy scored twice. He’s recently played indoor soccer in Milwaukee, Wisc. I guess he’s quite the scorer in indoor soccer, too. It would appear that he was just getting some work in and that he is not on the Sounders Fc roster in any way, shape or form.
Tom Taiwo, a 19-year-old who is on a trial basis for Sounders FC and whose pro rights belong to Chelsea (yes, that Chelsea), had some nice corner kicks.
Sounders FC started the following players: GK Ben Dragavon, left back Zach Scott, center back Tyson Wahl, center back Patrick Ianni, right back Evan Brown, left mid Mike Randolph, center mid Tom Taiwo, right mid Steve Zakuani, forwards Greg Howes and Jason Cascio, who was released by SSFC early in training. The boys wore blue jerseys. Assistant coach Ezra Hendrickson came on as a substitute.
Seattle Wolves starters (all I got were last names): GK Conlon; D Scott, O’Neill, Batres, Sprague; M Merl, Hulen, Sturm; F Tangney, Davidson, Chursky.
Fredy Montero was returning to Seattle as I did my interviews after the game, I was told, and I expect he is back with the club now. Contracts have been finalized for both Montero and Jhon Kennedy Hurtado. They have officially been added to the roster and are eligible to play the Sounders FC season opener on March 19.
Lastly, Zach Scott appears to have earned a contract with the club, his two months of hard training with the team paying off. There is a report in the Maui News of Hawaii, where Scott is from, that he has signed, but the team has yet to make it official.
