Wolves sweep to move into playoff position

Thiago Silva on the attack for SWFC.

From Seattle Wolves FC:

The Wolves swept a home and home series with Peace Arch SC of White Rock, BC, this weekend, defeating PASC 5-1 on the road Saturday, and then 4-2 at home on Sunday. Saturday's performance was one of the "most impressively played matches by a Wolves' team since [Alex Weaver] joined the club last year", said the Wolves head coach and technical director. "On Saturday the boys completely controlled the pace of the match, and capitalized on great opportunities going forward." Ian Walsh, nursing a groin injury, played with his heart on Saturday, leading the team with 2 goals. Matt Hulen, Mark Williams and Corey Sinser also netted goals in the 5-1 victory.

On Sunday, with Walsh on the bench, Thiago Silva stepped up with two goals of his own. Ryan Oxford and Willie Cardenas also scored, and the Wolves secured the valuable 3rd position in the PCSL Premier league table going into the final weekend of play.

The top 4 teams from PCSL Premier League action win berths into the Sheila Anderson Memorial Challenge Cup, to be held at the Cloverdale Athletic Park in Surrey, BC, the weekend of July 26-27.

With these wins the Wolves also qualify for the J.F. Kennedy Cup, to be held at the Northwest Soccer Complex in Bellingham, WA the weekend of August 16-17. The Kennedy Cup will feature the PCSL Premier League winner (currently Victoria United), the Oregon Premier League Winner, International Portland Select, fellow WSSA representative and host, Puget Sound Soccer Academy, and the Wolves.

Currently in 3rd place in the PCSL league standings, the Wolves will host the 4th place Vancouver Thunderbirds on Saturday night (July 19, 7:00pm, Starfire Stadium) and 2nd place Surrey United on Sunday night (July 20, 7:00pm, Starfire Stadium) in the last two home matches of their inaugural PCSL season. Both matches are expected to be hotly contested battles, with cup qualifying implications on the line.
