Seawolves Sounders U23
North Sound Edges Past Sounders U-23 Jacobson scores only goal as SeaWolves take victory.
The North Sound SeaWolves FC earned their first win at home against the Sounders FC U23 on Thursday night as they earned a 1-0 victory through a goal by Brady Jacobson before more than 600 fans at Edmonds Woodway Stadium. The defeat put a dent in the Sounders U-23s playoff hopes, keeping them three points behind the Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 with three games remaining.
The Sounders had the better chances as they outshot the SeaWolves 15-10, but North Sound goalkeeper Dylan Farber kept the game scoreless with 10 saves. Jacobson gave his side the lead in the 60th minute off a cross from Brady Ballew, and the SeaWolves were able to hold on to take victory.
We had a game plan and the players executed, SeaWolves coach Alex Silva said. I was very pleased with the performance of the team and we sure deserved at the end.
The SeaWolves next visit the Kitsap Pumas on Sunday night, before they host the Washington Crossfire on Friday, July 12 in their penultimate game of the season.
It was a big day for the SeaWolves in Edmonds. They were part of the local Fourth of July parade before taking the pitch against the Sounders.
Being part of the parade it was such a good idea, it brought us close to the community, Silva said. There are a lot of people getting to know about the club and it was special for the players for our players to be part of such good event. Thank you all the supporters.
