Match report based on reports from the Earthquakes and the Sounders:
In an A-League vs. MLS friendly played at the home of the Spokane Shadow, the Seattle Sounders and the San Jose Earthquakes played to another scoreless draw. Apparently to practice penalty kicks, Seattle went on to win by the taking of kicks from the penalty mark, 4-3. Twice before the teams have met for friendlies (San Jose were the Clash then), and the result in regulation has always been the same, 0-0. In 1997 Seattle won the shootout, and in 1999 San Jose won the shootout.
Ex-Sounder Ian Russell appeared for San Jose, and ex-Sounder Craig Waibel entered at the break for Seattle. Waibel, a Spokane native, was on loan from the MLS Los Angeles Galaxy. Other players with ties to Spokane were Kieran Barton and Chad Brown, who have played for the Spokane Shadow, and backup goalkeeper Rich Cullen.
11th minute: Dario Brose struck a free kick from 25 yards out that was just tipped over the crossbar by Sounders goalkeeper Preston Burpo.
