Wolves take home the 2008 Kennedy Cup

(Seattle, WA)— The Seattle Wolves Football Club finally added some hardware to their Summer 2008 trophy cabinet.

Thanks to a second-half surge, the Wolves defeated Surrey United of British Columbia, Canada 5 – 2 in the 2008 John F. Kennedy Cup final. The Kennedy Cup, the only sporting award to which the late US President ever lent his name, dates back to 1960, and originally served as the championship for the top men's amateur teams from Canada, Mexico, and the United States. After a 20-year hiatus, the Cup was resurrected in 1989 and re-commissioned as the championship for the top teams from British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.

The Seattle Wolves have had a difficult time in Cup championships this summer, dropping final matches to FK Pacific in the Starfire Premier Soccer League (SPSL), and Victoria United in the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL). Out of four cup championships the club has played for, the Wolves have now captured two—the other coming from winning the title in the First Division of the SPSL.

The Seattle Wolves reached Sunday's Kennedy Cup final by besting the International Portland Selects 2 – 1 in the semi-final on Saturday. Goals from defender, Daniel Scott and Brazilian forward, Thiago Silva led the Wolves to a tightly contested victory over the Oregonian representatives.
