Undefeated Sounders Women have a busy week ahead

Santa Clarita won their first game of the 2015 season versus the Arizona Strikers then dropped three contests to sit at 1-3-0. Melissa Fernandez and Kassandra Massey are the threats from the Blue Heat.

The Colorado Pride currently sit in first place with the Sounders Women with a record of 4-1-0 and 12 points with the only blemish coming from local rival Colorado Rush. Tara Andrews is on a tear for the Pride with 8 goals and 2 assists. Kaitlyn Johnson has 4 goals and 1 assist to follow close behind, and both Erin Gunther and Alleandra Watt have contributed 3 goals apiece. The Pride are coached by Sian Hudson and will be a formidable opponent for the Sounders Women. The game will be played at Civic Stadium in Bellingham at 7:30pm on June 14th as part of the Sounders Women initiate to reach as many parts of Washington as possible this summer.

“We are looking forward to a busy week of games,” explained Cliff McElroy, Sounders Women Co-owner,” We are happy to be at 4-0 and playing these games at three different venues this week allows us to spread our reach for these young women and the young players that aspire to play at this level one day.”

The Sounders Women have been on an absolute terror since day one of the W-League season. Five different Sounders Women players have registered multiple goals with Mele French leading the charge with 3 goals on the year. Ashley Clark, Brianna Hooks, Simone Kolander, and Morgan Reuther have all registered 2 goals apiece and Cali Farquarson leads in the assist category with 3 assists so far. Emily Boyd has been a rock in goal with a .333 goals against average. The three game set will be a test for the Sounders Women especially with the Colorado Pride game coming as the third game in six days and with both of these teams jockeying for position early in the year.

“Our group has done very well on the road this past week with tough travel conditions. We will look to secure points this week and we are excited about playing games at different venues for our fans,” followed Sounders Women head coach, Hubert Busby Jr.
