The Seattle Sounders make their final USL First Division regular season visit to Swangard Stadium tonight to face the Vancouver Whitecaps. (Team 1040/team1040.ca/Fox Soccer Channel).
SEE YOU IN MLS?
The 2-1-3 Sounders are moving to Major League Soccer in 2009 under the ownership of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and funnyman/game show host Drew Carey. He apparently invested because the price was right.
Eduardo Sebrango has scored all three goals for the 3-1-1 Whitecaps. USL rookie goalkeeper Serge Djekanovic has four shutouts. Leighton O'Brien, Josh Gardner and Sebastien Le Toux each have two goals for Seattle.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN
The Whitecaps finish the May schedule on the road at the Portland Timbers (Saturday), Charleston Battery (Wednesday) and Minnesota Thunder (May 31).
Whitecaps' captain Adrian Cann joins Canada's national team in Seattle on Sunday to prepare for a May 31 Qwest Field friendly against No. 2-ranked Brazil. Canada visits St. Vincent and the Grenadines on June 15 for a World Cup qualifier.
It'll be a nice night for soccer, so why not play two? Come early to see the women host the Los Angeles Legends at 5 p.m. The Whitecaps eked out a 2-2 tie in their May 17 W-League home opener with the Ventura County Fusion.
