Kent native Cam Weaver scored in the 73rd minute to lead the Sounders FC reserves to a 1-0 win Sunday against the Orange County Blues of the USL PRO.
Goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann and Josh Ford split the shutout as Seattle improved to 2-0-1 in the MLS Reserve League.
Homegrown player Sean Okoli earned the assist on Weaver’s winner, and the Sounders held a 24-8 advantage in shots. A makeshift lineup saw a defensive back-line of David Estrada, Andy Rose, Dylan Remick and Aaron Kovar.
Seattle’s next reserve game is May 26 at Real Salt Lake.
