The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
The new ISC WPSL team sits at the top of their division with 2 wins, a draw and 0 losses in 3 matches and will face tough cross state division rival Spokane Shine this Friday, June 15 th at Issaquah High School. Kickoff is at 7:30pm and the club expects the attendance for this match to impress, as they played Spokane away from home last week in a tough game that resulted in the only draw of the season.
The season- opening game against Eugene Metro FC saw Trinidad and Tobogan National Teamer Kennya Cordner score 2 goals, and Joana Houplin also netted one to give the girls a 3-0 victory, recording their first ever shut out and win of the season. Game 2 against Portland Rain resulted in a 2-1 victory, with Kennya Cordner recording her 3rd goal of the season, and fellow Trinidad and Tobogan National Team member Maylee Attin Johnson putting the girls up first off an assist from Jessie Oliver.
In their first away game at Spokane, Arica Slawson scored an equalizer in the second half of what has been described as a very tough match, resulting in a 1-1 draw for the girls.
“We’ve had a very strong start to the season,” says head coach Erin Redwine. “It’s really exciting to see how quickly we’ve formed a great cohesive dynamic in such a short amount of time.” She goes on to say “we’ve done a great job at establishing a possession style of play, which is fueled by our strong work ethic. Our goal right now is to continue to stay at the top. Going on the road and playing a team like Spokane has been a good test for us. We learned some good lessons coming out of that one.”
