All Quiet On the Pumas’ Front

March 31st, 2011 by jeff graham

For those like me who are waiting to hear who’ll be playing for the Kitsap Pumas this season, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer.
Kitsap executive director Ben Pecora told me today the team is still working on player signings — “negotiations are ongoing” — but there’s no news to report yet.
I’m guessing we’ll start getting some information next week. The team is scheduled the train Monday, Wednesday and Friday, which should give coach Peter Fewing some added time to look at some players.
Regarding the goalkeeping battle, it sounds like the Pumas are still deciding between Dustyn Brim and Garrett Staples. Both are overage players and the team can probably only afford to keep one of them.
I chatted with Staples briefly today. He said expects a decision to be made toward the end of training next week.
Staples said if he doesn’t make the squad over Brim, the team’s No. 1 keeper the past two seasons, he’d rather know sooner than later so he can explore other opportunities.
I’ve got a call in with defender Daniel Scott, who didn’t attend the team’s invitational tryout session last weekend at Battle Point Park on Bainbridge Island.
Scott recently tried out for NSC Minnesota of the North American Soccer League, but didn’t receive a contract offer.
Despite missing tryouts, it sounds like it’s still in the mix for Kitsap.
