Kickoff here at Bremerton Memorial will be in just about an hour
as the Pumas take on the Portland Timbers in the second round of
the U.S. Open Cup.
Chatted with Kitsap executive director Ben Pecora a little while
ago. Turns out there’s money on the line tonight.
The PDL team that goes the farthest in the Open Cup earns
$10,000. Kitsap and Long Island are the only two PDL teams that
made it to the second round. If one team wins and one team loses
tonight, the winner gets the dough.
If both teams happen to lose, Pecora said Kitsap will ask the
United Soccer Leagues for half — $5,000.
As far as I can see, Derby Carrillo, Todd Wallenius, Kellen
Wantulok and Zack Sampson are inactive for tonight’s game.
