The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
Here are the scores from Saturday night’s PASL action. Details coming as soon as they are available.
MARYSVILLE, Wash.—“It was a great match to not only play in but to enjoy as spectators,” says Ruckus player Victor Navarro after Marysville won a thriller with time running out over rivals Arlington. “We were tied 2-2 in first quarter and 4-4 at half. It was even both ways all game,” Navarro says. “They scored, we came back, we scored, they came back.” Then the final frantic minutes decided the match. “We were down by two in fourth quarter with five minutes left. We managed to catch up and David Lopez tied the game with two minutes to go and then Josh Rudnik did a play in the corned in the last minute setting up Mike Sitzman to do the winning tap-in goal at the back post with nine seconds to go.”
“The Ruckus played an inspired game tonight,” said Arlington Aviators head coach Phil Bartlow. “Congratulations to the players on that team. I’m sure after all the buildup this week that we just made their season. We’ll get back to work on Monday, unfortunately we can’t get this bad taste out of our mouths until January.”
The Aviators stay local to host another new rival, the Snohomish Skyhawks, in their next match on January 5th. The Ruckus travel to Tumwater on January 5th.
