The Sounders Women head on the road to Oregon for pair of WPSL games


After unloading 21 goals on opening weekend, the Sounders Women head on the road to Oregon on June 9th and 10th to play against the Westside Timbers and the Eugene Timbers FC Azul respectively. 

 

The Westside Timbers opened against the Eugene Timbers FC Azul with a 0-0 tie over opening weekend.  Historically, the Sounders Women have dominated the series with both teams having an undefeated record against both clubs in WPSL play.

 

The Sounders Women are led by high scoring US Women’s National U23 player Morgan Weaver who hammered home 6 goals over the opening weekend.   The #RELOADED roster is littered with quality players and the women will look to defend their consecutive Northwest Division Championships.

 

The destination for college players looking to make it to the professional ranks, the Sounders Women have operated for nearly two decades and have helped place over 55 players into professional soccer clubs and national teams alike. 

 

The home schedule resumes later this month on June 30th at Starfire Sports Stadium against OSA.   Tickets can be purchased at the gate and the Sounders Women full schedule can be found at www.sounderswomen.com.   Come check out the #RELOADED Sounders Women!
