Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

“It’s Cascadia Cup time.”

Sounders FC’s final two Cascadia Cup games are in the next two weeks — first at Vancouver on Saturday and then against Portland on Oct. 7.

That, of course, provides a clear motivation alongside wanting to earn the Western Conference’s No. 2 seed into the playoffs.

“We know these next two games are for the Cup,” coach Sigi Schmid said. “We want that to stay with our fans; we think that’s where it belongs.”

Here are the current Cascadia Cup standings:

Portland: 2-0-2 (8 points)

Seattle: 1-1-2 (5 points)

Vancouver: 0-2-2 (2 points)

The tiebreakers, as posted online, start with head-to-head and continue from there.

The final game in the Pacific Northwest tournament is Oct. 21 when the Whitecaps host the Timbers. And as you can see, a Sounders win this weekend in Vancouver would go a long way to ensuring the trophy is retained.

As Schmid said earlier in the week: “It’s Cascadia Cup time.”

Added forward Eddie Johnson, who has two goals in two games vs. the Whitecaps: “It doesn’t get bigger than a Cascadia game this weekend.”

How about you? Do you think the Sounders to be able to retain the Cascadia Cup?
