Must-win game for Sounders U23 vs. Pumas?May 24th, 2013 by jeff graham
Last week’s game against Washington Crossfire was considered
almost a must-win for the Kitsap Pumas after the team opened the
Premier Development League season with two losses to Victoria and
Kitsap beat Crossfire 1-0 to earn three points and the Pumas find themselves tied for third place in the Northwest Division behind Victoria (3-0) and Portland (3-0).
Hosting the Pumas on Friday at Curtis Stadium at 7 p.m., the Sounders FC U23 could view the game as must-win. The team has already lost to Portland and Victoria and certainly doesn’t want to start the season 0-3.
The Sounders might be a tired group facing the Pumas having played four games since May 14. On Tuesday, the Sounders lost to the Charlotte Eagles of USL PRO in the second round of the U.S. Open Cup.
