sea v SRFC May 14

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. – Sounders FC 2 fell 2-0 to Sacramento Republic FC on Saturday evening thanks to a brace from Sacramento’s Tommy Thompson, as S2 (1-5-3, 6 points) has lost the past two matches following a four-match unbeaten streak (1-0-3).


In a rematch of the season-opener that saw Sacramento top Seattle 1-0 at Starfire Stadium, S2 faced Republic FC for its second road test of the season. Forward Victor Mansaray had a dangerous opportunity in the 13th minute, but his well-struck attempt fired into the side netting. In the 27th minute, goalkeeper Charlie Lyon stayed on his line and saved a blazing shot attempt from Thompson.


A few minutes later, Thompson exacted his revenge with a goal in the 32nd minute. Referee Luis Guardia signaled for a penalty on defender Michael Nelson’s challenge in the scoring area. Thompson’s ensuing shot attempt was saved by Lyon, but Thompson followed up with a lofted kick from close range that drifted over Lyon’s reach.


In the 47th minute, Thompson added to his tally and extended Republic FC’s lead to 2-0. The 20-year-old midfielder snaked his way through Seattle’s backline and delivered a punishing strike from the top of Seattle’s area and into the back of the net.


For the remainder of the second half, Seattle maintained a fast pace of play, but couldn’t capitalize on any chances. Sounders FC Academy player Kei Tomozawa made his season debut as a substitute in the 72nd minute.


S2 returns to Starfire Stadium to take on LA Galaxy II on Sunday, May 22 (5:00 p.m. PT / live-streamed on SoundersFC.com).
