Washington’s five USL clubs all miss playoffs for first time in seven years

georgebigwhiteIt wasn’t a very good year for United Soccer Leagues teams in the state of Washington, at least by the measure of making  the playoffs.

On Sunday when the Sounders Women fell 2:0 at the Bay Area Breeze, our state’s best chance at a USL post-season was dashed in the W-League.

The PDL NW was won by the Victoria Highlanders. The Timbers U23’s are second and the Whitecaps U23’s are third.

It’s the first time since 2006 that Washington hasn’t produced a PDL playoff club. For the Sounders Women, it’s their first playoff miss since 2010.

    • We had a new coach at the end of last season who returned with a core of players. To that he added some amazing talent including Brett Levis who has been a revelation and also some professional experience in Blair Sturrock an ex-pro from Scotland who has shown the young guys what being a pro looks like.
