SEATTLE - Washington men's soccer will play host to the Seattle Sounders in a spring scrimmage, Tuesday, April 17, at 6 p.m. at Husky Soccer Field. The match marks the final home game of the spring for the Huskies, who have posted a 4-2-2 record during their exhibition season. UW has one last road match at Oregon State, Saturday, April 28.
The Sounders will be the third professional USL First-Division side the Huskies have faced during the spring after taking on the Vancouver Whitecaps (March 31) and Portland Timbers (April 7) on the road. The Sounders' roster features some familiar UW faces, including former Husky goalkeeper Chris Eylander and defender Matt Fischer. Seattle is preparing for its regular season opener with the Whitecaps in Vancouver, B.C., Saturday, April 21.
Last time out, Washington defeated Seattle Pacific 2-0 and played to a 1-1 scoreless draw with Seattle University in a battle of city rivals, April 14. Junior forward Ely Allen supplied all three goals on the day. On April 7, the Huskies faced the University of Portland and the Portland Timbers in a double-header, defeating the Pilots 3-0 before falling to the Timbers, 1-0. Junior forward Kevin Forrest scored two goals and sophomore midfielder George John added a third versus Portland.
The Huskies' only other loss of the spring came to the Vancouver Whitecaps on March 31, 2-1. Sophomore midfielder Raphael Cox scored Washington's lone goal.
