Wolves defeat a local rival, prepare for first PCSL match

By Liviu Bird

Friday 09 May 2008

On Wednesday night, the Seattle Wolves took on Starfire Premier Division rivals Seattle Americans, a team that has traditionally given the Wolves problems. A squad made up of many PCSL and USASA players took on the Americans and the outcome is very promising for the Wolves.

Vinicius Oliveira, Sean Morris, Ryan Oxford, and Andrew Kreiter all scored for the Wolves, with Oliveira and Moise Nistrian picking up assists. No player got on the scoresheet more than once, and goalkeepers Brian Gullikson (first half) and Chris Natale (second half) were only called into action sporadically.

The SPSL result bodes well for this weekend’s PCSL match against PSSA Rapids in Bellingham. The Wolves’ first-ever PCSL opponents have finished on the very bottom of the league table both seasons since joining the league. The Wolves will try to avoid that same result in their first season, and beating the Rapids on their home turf would be a good start.

A good result against the Rapids will make next weekend’s match against traditional PCSL powerhouse Victoria United seem like a less daunting task, especially with the USASA players in Arizona for the Regional Tournament.

However, all of the Wolves’ energy and resources will be focused on winning this weekend first. With three matches in two cities in two days, fans have multiple opportunities to see the club in action, both at home and on the road.
