The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
goalWA.net readers have spoken, and in a close race Wilson Tsoi has edged out…himself. On April 21, 2013 Tsoi traveled to Portland to shoot Seattle Reign FC against the Portland Thorns in the new NWSL women’s pro league. Over 16,000 fans were in attendance, and Wilson set up his famous ‘behind the goal’ cameras to catch the action. When Seattle’s Jess Fishlock scored her club’s lone goal in a 2:1 Seattle loss Tsoi came back with a stunning photograph that captures the moment.
