The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
The regular seasons in the PDL and the WPSL are quickly coming to a close, but we’ve got another chance this week to recognize two players who stood out in their matches.
In the PDL the goalWA.net Player of the Week is Brad Jacobson of the North Sound SeaWolves (UW transfer for 2013). Brad’s goal in the second half lifted the SeaWolves to their first-ever win over the Sounders U23′s. Jacobson was wearing the captain’s armband when he led North Sound to the victory.
In the WPSL the goalWA.net Player of the Week is AC Seattle goalkeeper Ilaria Leoni. Ilaria (bio) made several crucial saves on Friday as her team beat Emerald City FC to win the Evergreen Cup and qualify for the playoffs. Leoni uses her quickness, foot skills and positioning to keep opponents frustrated.
AC Seattle won three of four matches in six days with Leoni in goal for all 360 minutes.
