Around the Sound of Soccer for November 7th

Sometimes the real world sneaks into our soccer playground. We've just found a blog that reports Michelle French is battling cancer. Michelle, who grew up in Kent, WA, is one of the more accomplished female players to ever come out of the Northwest, and has ties to UW, the Sounders Women and the University of Portland. Michelle has starred for the United States national team and has been involved with both the old women's pro soccer league (WUSA) and the new league, Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) that debuts in 2009. We wish her only the best. Please consider leaving a message at the blog, or supporting Michelle's battle using the info posted there.

In college soccer, the Husky Men face an important away test in the Bay area this weekend. The Western Washington Viking Men won their second-ever GNAC crown with a 6-0 slashing of St. Martin's. The powerhouse Seattle Pacific Falcon Women have outscored their opponents 40-4 in recent matches. Last night they topped Western Oregon 2-0 in the rain at Interbay. The Falcon men were doubled up 4-2 by Montana State Billings. On Wednesday the Seattle University Redhawks Women edged Central Washington 1-0 in a match played on Field Turf at Tukwila's Starfire Sports Complex. The community college soccer season is coming in to focus. Highline CC currently leads all Men's teams in wins and points. In Women's community college action Walla Wall are undefeated, and Shoreline leads the Puget Sound-area teams with 16 wins.

Sounders FC are trying to fill in the remaining Qwest Field seats with season ticket sales. A few good seats still remain as the club hopes to reach the 20,000 season ticket mark before kick off 2009. You can contact Gary Boyle of Sounders FC for ticket information. A direct form that goes to Gary is online here, and GOALSeattle has a pdf file of ticket information here.

The Seattle Soccer Show has a brand new episode online. Listen to it here.
