Let me reiterate what a great time I had at that game. Good fans who came out strong, a kids area so it’s family friendly (unless you happen to be sitting near the Timbers Army, which isn’t likely to happen – c’mon people, clean it up!) affordable tickets, young guys who are HUNGRY and played quite well for a half last night and if you sit high enough in the stands, the sunset over the Sound is unbelievable. Thanks to Ben and the staff in Bremerton Memorial Stadium.
This game could have gone either way for a half. Kitsap was the better team in the first half, but couldn’t get a call nor make a play when needed in the second half.
“The score doesn’t really reflect how we played,” goalkeeper Dustyn Brim said. “We were
able to hang with them for 88 minutes. It was neck and neck.”
The loss is the first in team history and it’s also the first time the Pumas have been held to no goals. The club remains in first place in the Northwest Division of the USL PDL (5-0-2, 17 points) with an away match at Abbotsford B.C. this Saturday.
Here’s some video from the start of the match, Timbers in black, Pumas in white/blue stripes:
Also wanted to share the link to my story for today. Spoke to Joan Laporta, president of FC Barcelona, over the phone yesterday. A very lucky break.
No Sounders FC practice today. I’ll be watching tonight’s Chivas USA-Houston match on ESPN2 (5:30 p.m.) in a battle of the top two teams in the West.
