Snohomish Skyhawks 16:1 Marysville Ruckus
The Skyhawks blasted their county rivals with a nine-goal first half and never looked back. The win stops a two-match Skyhawks slide and puts Snohomish in position for a top-four push. It was the worst-ever league loss for the Ruckus, who lost 14:0 at Kitsap to end last season. The Skyhawks’ Devin Mendiola had four goals four assists in his first game this season after being injured. Hector Rodriguez had two goals and three assists for Snohomish.
South Sound Shock 20:5 Tumwater Pioneers
The South Sound Shock clinched a playoff spot with a 20-goal output against Tumwater. Lukas Rydberg scored six goals and dished out four assists for the Shock. Derek Johnson also scored six goals. The Shock Facebook page has more details. Chris Pugh scored three for the Pioneers.
Kitsap Pumas 8:6 Oregon Blacktails FC
Last week’s Player of the Week Pat Perkins gave the Pumas a boost in the second quarter and they went on to top the Blacktails. Oregon traveled with only nine players and put up a better fight than last week’s 13:3 loss to Kitsap down in Salem. Perkins ended on four goals, three of which came in a four-minute span in the first half.
