Sounders-Timbers tonight

Jason Cascio (red undershirt) could be moving forward with the Sounders as early as tonight.

Match day has arrived. Portland visits Qwest Field tonight at 7:00 PM to try and take a big lead in the Cascadia Cup standings.

The Sounders will be without the services of forward Roger Levesque, it appears. Look for a surprise up front. While Andre Schmid may get the start, expect Jason Cascio to see time on the attack with Le Toux. The Seattle University grad has skills that he's not been able to use so far in his limited sub roles in the middle or on defense. Cascio scored 29 goals over the last two years in a Redhawks kit. Last Tuesday the Sounders scrimmaged against the Redhawks and Cascio played up top. He scored twice. There is a tradition of local Seattle players scoring against Portland. Jake Besagno and Cam Weaver came up big in 2006, as an example.

The Seattle Times has a preview of tonight's match and talks about the switch to Starfire as the main venue for the final USL-1 campaign.

The Seattle P-I looks at Brian Schmetzer's MLS coaching dreams, and previews tonight's match.
