Over the weekend, Pali Blues of Fullerton, Calif., eliminated Sounders Women from the W-League playoffs, 1-0; while Sounders U-23 kept its PDL season alive with a 2-1 win over FC Tucson. Sounders U-23 will play a national semifinal Saturday at FC London (Ontario)
However, owner Lane Smith already has confirmed that both clubs will return in 2013.
The Sounders Women dominated the game, but could not find the back of the net. The Rapids scored on a rocket early in the game, and never really threatened after that. SSW shot often, and controlled the majority of the game, to no avail. Next up, the Colorado Rush tomorrow. Final 0-1.
A simple question. What makes you purchase tickets, fight the traffic, spend your expendable money on Sounders Women games? Is it the excellent product that is out on the field this season? Did the national’s bring you, but the core of the team keep you coming back? Is it the close confines of Starfire? Is it the fact that you have kids, and you want your kids to see that dreams are reachable? Is it just your passion for all things Sounders?
