It hasn’t been the easiest of seasons for the Sounders S2 squad. While the action at their new home field in Cheney Stadium has been fun and fan-friendly, it hasn’t added up to wins for the local boys. As a matter of fact, Sounders S2 had dropped six consecutive matches before entering their contest with Las Vegas Lights FC on Thursday, July 26, under blue skies at Cheney Stadium. Blue and green smoke began filling the air early for the home team as midfielder Antonee Burke-Gilroy (top-right) opened up scoring with a goal just six minutes into the match. Veteran Lamar Neagle (bottom-left and center) drew a penalty kick for the Sounders S2 midway through the second half, and David Estrada converted the opportunity to make the score 2-0. Neagle would add his own goal in the 72nd minute to cap the much-needed 3-0 victory for the Sounders S2 (4-13-2). The next home match is Saturday, Aug. 11, against San Antonio FC at 7 p.m.
