Here's a preview from the club:
South Sound FC takes on league leaders Vancouver Victory FC Wednesday, June 24, 7:30 pm at Harry Lang Stadium in Lakewood. Vancouver with 22 points holds a narrow two point lead on South Sound at 20 points, which makes this match one of the most important of the season.
Vancouver held a perfect 7-0-0 record up until their last two matches. A loss to Wenatchee and a draw vs Seattle have brought first place back into the grasp of South Sound, starting with Wednesday’s match. Vancouver will be without one of its top goal scorers. It was announced on Monday, June 22, that Borce Atanasov signed with USL PDL side Kitsap Pumas. Atanasov scored 5 goals for Vancouver and was last week’s EPLWA offensive player of the week. Atanasov played with Kitsap in a few pre-season matches, but could not sign with the club until he finished out his school year at University.
Never miss a local story.
South Sound beat Vancouver 4-1 mid-season and 2-0 in the final match of the 2014 season, but it wasn’t enough as Spokane Shadow won their last match and edged South Sound out of the championship by one point. This season, Vancouver is the ones to beat yet again, this time to take that top spot from them.
