Match report by Ron Stickney:

Last preseason match on a pleasant, sunny Sunday in Mount Vernon.

2' Scott (Brown). An early corner kick taken by Sean-Michael Callahan was headed in by Zach Scott. 1-0 Sounders.

17' Levesque (Smith). Jason Farrell layed it off to Kyle Smith, whose pass sprang Roger Levesque up the middle. With only the keeper to beat, Levesque finished clinically. 2-0 Sounders.

33' Callahan (Aristodemo). Smith crossed the ball from wide right. Robbie Aristodemo on the left side in the penalty area sent the ball goalward with a sideways volley, and Callahan was alone in front of goal to put it past the keeper. 3-0 Sounders.

59' Sawatzky (PK). Darren Sawatzky earned the penalty kick when he received a cross inside the goal area and was held. Sawatzky put the PK away into the lower left corner. It was the first time we've ever seen someone wipe his forehead with his sleeve while stepping to the ball for the PK. 4-0 Sounders.

90' Sawatzky (Aristodemo). Aristodemo fed a diagonal pass ahead to Sawatzky, 15 yards from goal on the right. Sawatzky held while the first arriving defender went past, then fired accurately inside the far post. 5-0 Sounders.

26' WSSA - McNeley cautioned.
30' WSSA - Smith cautioned.

Referees: Mark Matthews; Brian Armes, Mohammed Zarrabi-Kashani.
