Final: Sounders FC 3, San Jose 0. Seattle’s reserves finish the season 4-5-1. Goals came from Estrada, Martinez and Caskey.

88′: Bingham booked for taking out Dismuke near the corner flag. Burch nearly sneaks a free kick inside the near post.

86′: Duncan McCormick in for Servando Carrasco. Henry Wingo in for Alex Caskey.

80′: Guest player Taylor Mueller comes in for Daniel Steres.

79′: GOAL SEATTLE! Alex Caskey makes it 3-0 for the Sounders reserves with a cool finish in the box. He didn’t celebrate, as usual.

74′: San Jose defender Jed Zayner — you may remember him for being involved in the incident with Eddie Johnson after the Open Cup game — was just booked for a hard foul on Cordell Cato.

62′: Academy product Jordan Morris, the son of the team’s doctor, comes on for David Estrada.

60′: According to the Sounders, their five home reserve games raised $9,781.59 for the team’s charity partners.

58′: First sub for Seattle is Dom Dismuke, an academy product, in for Mario Martinez. San Jose has been pressing more recently, but Andrew Weber has been up to it so far.

45′: Halftime. Sounders FC 2. San Jose 0. Need some intrigue for this reserve game? Seattle won’t finish last in the West with a win.

41′: GOAL SEATTLE! Mario Martinez heads in a cross from Mike Seamon to put the Sounders up 2-0. Lot of guys involved in the buildup, including David Estrada.

27′: Bingham has made a couple great saves so far. First on a Burch free kick a few minutes ago and just now on a long-range shot from Mario Martinez.

19′: All the guys on the Sounders bench are academy products except Taylor Mueller, a guest player formerly of UW and the Portland Timbers.

15′: GOAL SEATTLE! David Estrada opens the scoring off an assist from Alex Caskey. Coupled with his first MLS action in four months, it’s been a good weekend for Estrada.

Note: I’m a little late getting to this due to some interviews after the first-team practice before kickoff.

Here are the lineups (you can listen live on the Sounders FC website or follow their live blog for more play-by-play updates):

Sounders FC reserves: Weber, Seamon, Scott, Steres, Burch, Carrasco, Rose, Cato, Caskey, Martinez, Estrada.
