Pumas top Sounders U-23′s as Ruffneck Cup gets underway

The name and jersey colors have changed, but the result at Bremerton Memorial Stadium on Saturday night looked very familiar. The Kitsap Pumas took another one from a team that plays in Tacoma.

The Ruffneck Cup is underway after the Kitsap Pumas beat the Sounders U-23′s 3:1 on May 19. Before the match the stadium scoreboard welcomed the “Tacoma Tide.” During the match the public address announcer referred to the visitors as “Seattle.” The U-23′s are neither, hoping to build a fanbase in the greater Tacoma area.

The former Tide will have to wait for their first-ever win over the Pumas, who have now won five straight over them with a draw thrown in, since 2009.

The Pumas got goals from (see video) Matt Friesen and Ben Truax. The U-23′s answered with a long strike from Sean Morris.
