Sounders FC training Wednesday at Starfire — photo reel

It was a lengthy day down in Tukwila today — hence the 8 p.m. post. Practice started later than usual and ran pretty long with the reserves. The starters (many of which wore sneakers) had a light regeneration workout and then left to train inside.

The reserves put in a more regular day, with some fitness drills, scrimmage work and finishing. I thought Josh Ford had some good saves in a drill where forwards peppered shots on target from at the top of the 18-yard box. Lots of goals too, as you’d hope for and expect.

Mike Seamon looked like he was a neutral in training, so it’s nice to see him improve. He tweeted as much too. Mike Fucito, Brad Evans and Pat Noonan did a lot of jogging to the side.

To the pics:
