Sounders Women remain undefeated with win over OSA
The Sounders Women continued their unblemished 2016 season with another win over local side, OSA. The game pitted two of the top three teams in the WPSL Northwest Division but the game was academic only as the Sounders Women have wrapped up the WPSL Northwest Division crown and will head to Northern California in two weeks for the regional competition.
The game started with energy and both teams challenged the goal mouths with Cassie Miller maintaining her stellar summer with saves to keep OSA off the scoreboard. Megan Lindsey broke the ice with a goal set up by Kaycie Tillman midway through the first half. The game was controlled by the Sounders Women but as the two sides approached half time, OSA found pay dirt with a goal of their own. At half time, it was 1-1 at French Field in Kent, Washington.
The second half would see the Sounders Women creating chances but not finding the back of the net until Tillman hammered home the second goal on an assist from Megan Connolly. A small flurry from OSA made the game interesting but the Sounders Women held on to secure the three points and maintain an undefeated record on the campaign.
The Sounders Women face NSGSC in Vancouver, British Columbia this Saturday July 16th to finish the regular season. Next up will be the regional competition for the Sounders Women with details still to be ironed out for the post season competition.
