In front of a small but eventually vocal crowd at Harry E. Lang Stadium in Lakewood, South Sound FC got second half goals from Pico Rubio and Scotty Hanson to knock off Wenatchee United, 2-1, in their home opener.
After a back and forth first 25 minutes that saw a handful of chance for both teams and a couple of outstanding saves by South Sound FC keeper Chris Kintz, the Shock took over and dominated possession for the majority of the rest of the game. They were unable to take advantage until the 61st minute when Rubio gathered a pass from Daniel Gray and skimmed a shot from just inside the box and around the Wenatchee keeper for their first goal at home in Evergreen Premier League play.
Minutes later, Gray sent a corner kick into the box and Hanson’s header found the back of the net to put SSFC up 2-0 in the 75th minute. Wenatchee responded a minute later with a goal from Christian Nyafore in the 76th minute to cut the deficit to 2-1. But the Shock didn’t allow Wenatchee many opportunities over the final 15 minutes and held on for the win.
The Shock are now 3-0 in the young EPLWA season, tied with Bellingham United for first place. They will return to the Lang Stadium pitch on Sunday, May 18th against the Spokane Spiders at 2:00 PM.

The Tumwater Pioneers indoor soccer team will not return for their second season in the PASL Premier. Health issues have forced the Pios owner to close Tumwater Indoor Sports and they will not field a team for the 2013-2014 season.
The Pioneers had a rough lone year in Tumwater going 1-7, their lone win coming in their home finale, a 9-7 win over the shorthanded Oregon Blacktails. Evergreen alum Kevin Flavin scored 12 goals and was named PASL Northwest player of the week by goalWA.net for his five goal performance against the Marysville Ruckus on January 5th.
On a personal note, I worked for the Tumwater Pioneers volunteering to build and run their website and social media outlets, I was their PA announcer and played the music and sound effects at the games. I’m disappointed that the team will not be back and I am hoping to possibly put something together to bring another team to town. Our crowds were really fun and I think we could do even better both on and off the field in the 2013-2014 season with me in charge. Not sure yet if it is even possible to get a team up and running but I am at least exploring the possibility.
In other PASL Premier news, the South Sound Shock, the Tacoma based team that played their home games in Tumwater in 2012 and two home games at Tumwater Indoor Sports last season will likely play their full home schedule in Gig Harbor this season.
Thanks to all of the Pioneers players and fans for a fun single season. I hope I can see you out there again sometime soon.
The South Sound Shock, who played two of their regular season games this season and their entire inaugural season in 2012 at Tumwater Indoor Sports, knocked off the Kitsap Pumas 7-4 at the Gig Harbor Athletic Club on Sunday afternoon. The win sends the Shock to San Diego for the PASL’s national tournament in March.
Derek Johnson (#9) scored twice for the Shock and Nate Ford (#11) notched the hat trick including a full pitch goal in the closing minutes on an empty net while the Pumas were using a sixth attacker. Aaron Anderson was credited with 22 saves.
Matt Friesen scored twice and Dustyn Brim made 21 saves for the Pumas.
