ARLINGTON, WA — The Kitsap Pumas and Arlington Aviators met in a battle for first place in the PASL NW North last Saturday.
That is just what it was…a battle.
In the end the Pumas won 7-4 and took the division. The Aviators are in the playoffs with a second-place finish. They will play the Tacoma Galaxy in the first round. Kitsap will play the winner of the South Sound / Yamhill County match. Eventually one club will be left standing and head to nationals.
Wilson Tsoi was at the match and his first batch of photos was getting quite a bit of social media buzz. Now we can share all 89 shots, and they only add to the drama Tsoi captured.
The long-term arena soccer future of both the Pumas and Aviators is a bit unclear. Arlington’s soccer center is up for sale while Kitsap mulls whether or not they want to remain in the indoor business, or concentrate on their growing youth program and building their outdoor squad.
In a bit of irony, the LOGO WARS final four will pit the Pumas logo against the Aviators crest in the semifinals. Another battle.
Here’s hoping both clubs are around in 2015 to build on what could be a fierce indoor rivalry.
