White propels women to two more wins


Karli White leads the undefeated Sounders Women

The Sounders Women are undefeated so far in their initial foray into the WPSL.  Karli White has distinguished herself as the go to striker for the Sounders Women as she has punched in 6 goals in the first four games to lead the team to a current first place position in the WPSL Northwest Division.

On Saturday afternoon, June 11th, the Sounders Women played the Portland Spartans at Mercer Island high school and defeated the team from down south 7-0 in dominating fashion.  The game was preceded by a clinic put on by Sounders Women players and the community on Mercer Island came out to watch the first place Sounders Women bang in some goals.  White finished with a hat trick on the day with Megan Connolly, Kate Bennett, and Mora Johnson also adding goals.

With a quick turn-around, the Sounders Women played the Eugene Timbers at Starfire Stadium and again, found themselves in the right side of victory.  With the 4-0 win, the Sounders Women sit alone at the top of the table in the WPSL Northwest Division.

With White on fire and a roster full of future stars in the game, the Sounders Women will look to take their success on the road this weekend playing at the Issaquah Gunners.  The Gunners have given the Sounders Women their best test with a tightly contested 2-1 for the Sounders Women last weekend.  Game time is 7pm at Issaquah high school on June 17th.

The Sounders Women play the next three games on the road but return to Starfire Stadium on June 28th at 6:30pm.   For tickets and information, please go to www.sounderswomen.com.
