The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
TACOMA, Wash. — Mark Lee has spent much of his adult soccer life as a defensive wing for the Kitsap Pumas. Last season Lee moved to the Sounders U-23′s (he’s also played for the former Tacoma Tide FC.) Playing indoors during the winter in the PASL Lee has converted into a dynamic scoring threat.
Last weekend Mark added six goals to his recent hot streak as the Tacoma Stars won their home opener 9:8 and then fell the next afternoon 15:10 to the visiting Turlock Express at the Pacific Sports Center in Tacoma.
Lee’s third goal on Saturday was the overtime winner for Tacoma. Lee’s repeat hat trick in Sunday’s Stars loss keeps the goal barrage going.
In PASL action dating back to last season, Mark has scored 3 or more goals in five consecutive matches, including 5 in one match. Lee has tallied 18 goals in his previous six Professional Arena Soccer League appearances. Mark now has 24 goals and 7 assists over 16 matches played in the Professional Arena Soccer League in just over a season.
This fall Lee completed his first season as head coach of the Pierce College Raiders of the NWAACC.
Lee will try to stay hot in the scoring column when the Stars host the San Diego Sockers on December 1st at the Pacific Sports Center at 7:35 PM.
