Stars vs. Edmonton: Jamie Watson Goes Straight Into Starting Lineup

The Minnesota Stars need to find some goals - and are planning to find them by adding as many attacking players as they can manage. Loan signing Jamie Watson, a forward, will start in midfield for Minnesota in his first game for the Stars. With the addition of Watson to regular attacking winger Miguel Ibarra, as well as usual starting forwards Martin Nunez and Amani Walker, in some ways the Stars are beginning the match with four forwards.

For Edmonton, leading scorer Shaun Saiko - who missed the last match in Minnesota with a combination of injury and bad attitude - is back in the starting lineup for the Eddies. Midfielder Bryan Arguez, who scored Edmonton's lone goal in the 1-1 draw between these teams two weeks ago, is in the starting lineup as well.

In weather news, a strong north wind will have an effect on the game; the team attacking north will have to fight into a gale.

The lineups:

Minnesota
GK: Matt Van Oekel
Def: Justin Davis - Cristiano Dias - Kyle Altman - Brian Kallman
Midfield: Jamie Watson - Neil Hlavaty - Kentaro Takada - Miguel Ibarra
Strikers: Martin Nunez - Amani Walker

Edmonton
GK: Lance Parker
Def: David Proctor - Adam West - Kevin Hatchi - Paul Hamilton
Midfield: Antonio Rago - Bryan Arguez - Kenny Caceros
Strikers: Michael Cox - Shaun Saiko - Kyle Porter
