The regular season has come to an end for the Sounders Women after dominating the Northwest Division of the WPSL. This was the first season for the Sounders Women in the WPSL, facing some teams they were not familiar with from last season.
It’s now time to take on some new teams in the post season. The first stop is a small tournament at Bonney Field in Sacramento to determine the Western Conference champion. On Saturday, the Sounders Women will be facing Beach Futbol Club from Long Beach California, the winner of the Coastal Division. Beach won all their games, with the exception of a couple ties against SoCal FC, and boast a goal differential of 22. This game should prove to be a good matchup for the start of the tournament.
After winning the first game the team will move on to the championship match on Sunday against the winner of California Storm vs. San Diego SeaLions. These two teams represent the NorCal Division and the PacSouth Division respectively. Both teams dominated their divisions with goal differentials over 20. This tournament will be a good challenge for the Sounders Women as they face some equally talented teams.
