TUKWILA—Welcome back to Starfire Stadium, where the Sounders enter the U.S. Open Cup in the fourth round against amateur team PSA Elite. Kickoff is set for about 7 p.m. and you can follow a live chat on the blog and/or watch a live stream on SoundersFC.com.
Seattle is 12-0 in the Open Cup here, with a 33-7 goal differential. Seattle is 14-0 at home in the tournament, overall.
PSA Elite, based in Irvine, Calif., is the last amateur team left in the field. The underdog team has advanced through three rounds, two by penalty-kick shootout and one by forfeit.
Safe to say, this is considered a huge mismatch.
I’ll post lineups here when they become available.
