That’s your piece of news for the day. Sounders FC 2, Gonzaga 1 at Starfire this afternoon. Lots of games going on and a few folks were looking in on Sounders FC match. Sun came out and it was rather nice.
Video to follow. Yes, I was there. This team is now my life. Haha.
Alex Chursky, loaned to Seattle for the day from the Seattle Wolves, scored the first Sounders FC goal in the 35th minute. Gonzaga tied it with a goal in the 63rd minute, after Roger Levesque missed a golden opportunity to put one in when he was all alone against the Zags’ keeper. Nice work by that kid. He made several good saves.
The best goal was the last. In the 65th minute, Nathan Sturgis sent the ball in on a free kick. It looked like Levesque barely nudged the ball with hs head, and Tyson Wahl was there to knock in the deflection.
Sounders FC starters:GK Ben Dragavon. D Wahl, Patrick Ianni, Mandou Bojang, Evan Brown. M Jon Fishbaugher, Stephen King, Ely Allen, Sturgis. F Levesque and Chursky.
Substitutions (thanks to Taylor Graham for and Grant Clark for the assist on these): Peter Marshall (in for Bojang after halftime. Marshall is Sounders FC defender Tyrone Marshall’s younger brother who was in town to help Tyrone paint his house), Gabe Sturm (for Fishbaugher in 60th min.) Mark Lee (for Allen, 60th min. Fishbaugher later came back in for Sturgis.
