Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jenny Boucek is the new head coach of the Seattle Storm. Boucek replaces Brian Agler, who left earlier this month to coach the Los Angeles Sparks. The 41-year-old Boucek was an associate head coach with the Storm in 2014 after being an assistant coach the previous three seasons. Its an honor to be part of a world-class sports franchise, said Boucek. Seattle has a great championship legacy and I am excited to team up with (team president and general manager) Alisha (Valavanis) and our ownership group as we enter the next era of Storm Basketball. Boucek began her coaching career during the 1999 WNBA season as an assistant with the Washington Mystics. She then spent three seasons in the same capacity with the Miami Sol from 2000-02. From 2003-05, Boucek was an assistant coach with the Storm. Seattle won its first WNBA title in 2004. Boucek was head coach of the now-defunct Sacramento Monarchs for two-plus seasons, spanning from 2007-09. Jenny has a tremendous energy, tenacity and passion for this franchise, said Valavanis. Her work ethic, basketball IQ and innovative approach are the right combination as we look to reshape our team. Jenny, myself and Force 10 Hoops are aligned in our vision and strategy to return the Storm to an elite team in the WNBA and look forward to getting started. The Storm have the No. 1 pick in Aprils WNBA draft, and it remains unclear if three-time WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson will return to the team in 2015.

You can listen to the action on TSN Radio 690 Montreal beginning at 8:30pm et. Sportings last outing was a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake two weeks ago in a rematch of last seasons MLS Cup final, while Montreal is still searching for its first win of the 2014 campaign after playing to its third successive draw last weekend, a 1-1 stalemate with Chicago. Montreal lost its first three games to begin the season, but has rebounded to take three points from its last three matches. And although the team sits on the bottom of the Eastern Conference and has yet to record a win this season, goalkeeper Troy Perkins is encouraged by the last three results. "Everybody seems to see the negative, but the reality is weve gotten points in our last three games," Perkins said. "Were unbeaten, its still early in the season and were getting points, so we keep moving forward." In the Impacts last game, the club got a goal from Jack McInerney in the 43rd minute to take the lead on the Fire with McInerney scoring in his debut following a trade that sent Andrew Wenger to the Philadelphia Union in exchange for the 21-year-old. But McInerneys debut was spoiled by a second-half goal from Chicagos Quincy Amarikwa, forcing Montreal to settle for a point. The Impact wont be expected to pick up their first win on Saturday, but Perkins feels that the atmosphere in Kansas City will force his team to raise its level on play and that Saturdays contest will be a greeat test.dddddddddddd "You go to places like that and it demands that you step up your game," said Perkins of Montreals trip to Kansas City. "As professional athletes, you want to prove yourself against the best. You have to play at a higher level. You want to be tested. Its a high energy environment and I love playing those types of games." Sporting will be pleased to have some extra rest ahead of the match, but it wont do any good for defender Ike Opara, who is likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury. Opara made a career-high 18 appearances last season after joining Sporting from San Jose in midseason, but now head coach Peter Vermes will have to replace the 25-year-old along the back line. One player who Vermes can rely upon is goalkeeper Erik Kronberg, who is making the most of his first season as the starting netminder after spending eight years as the number two, first to Kevin Hartman and then Jimmy Nielsen. "It always is tough for players like that to be able to follow in somebody elses footsteps," Vermes said of Kronbergs emergence this season. "But I truly believe that hes starting to forge his own path, and I think people are starting to see that he has qualities that are important to our team as well. Hes going to continue to grow as a keeper, and thats what we need him to do." The 0-0 draw with RSL marked Kronbergs second clean sheet of the season in the five games he has started, while Montreal will hope to replicate the success it had against Sporting last term when the Impact won two of the three meetings between the sides.
