The big news from the locker room this morning is that Ben Olsen will be included in the 18-man roster for the first time this season. The club's long tenured midfielder has been fighting through pain all year after ankle surgery in the off-season, but in the last week or so has revved up his training regime. Though his ankle is still sore, Benny is fighting through the pain and will be available should Coach Soehn decide to use him.
With that in mind, here is the starting lineup that will face LA today:
Zach Wells; Bryan Namoff, Gonzalo Peralta, Devon McTavish, Gonzalo Martinez; Santino Quaranta, Clyde Simms, Marcelo Gallardo, Fred; Luciano Emilio, Jaime Moreno.
Tthe game will be broadcast nationally on ABC and will kick a little after 12 noon p.m. ET.
