Match Preview: LUFC vs Sounders FC
Eugene, OR – Sunday May 20th marks the PDL Northwest Conference kick off at Les Schwab Sports Park. LUFC opened the league up last weekend on the road at TSS FC Rovers with a resounding 4-1 victory. This weekend they will face another strong opponent from the north, Sounders U23.
The game kicks off at 2PM at Les Schwab Sports Park and will be the first chance for Red’s fans to tryout the newly installed bleachers.
This will be the season’s first match for the Sounders U23. They are coached by General Manager and Head Coach, Darren Sawatzky who is assisted by Mike Jennings, Jason Prenovost and Alejandro Charif.
After last week’s win in Canada against TSS FC Rovers, the Lane United Red’s are looking to get another good result in league play. “This will be a huge early test for us. Sounders are always well coached, extremely organized and will be competitive. We will have to be sharp in all areas of the game to get a result. We’ve had some wonderfully competitive matches with the Sounders U23’s over the years and this will be no exception.” Says Coach John Galas.
Sunday’s game will be the first look fans will get at the new renovations made at Les Schwab Sports Park including a new grand stand bleacher along the east side of the pitch. It will also be the last chance to purchase season tickets for the season, which are now available online here
