Friday, January 11th, 2013

We knew the Kitsap Pumas had a chance to play the Seattle Sounders in the Open Cup if they can beat Real Colorado this Tuesday. Now that’s official.

The major question is where would the game be played? That’s official now too. You can look at the potential third-round matchups here. The game would be played at Starfire Sports Complex on June 29 at 7 p.m.

Pumas, Timbers to play for Open Cup berth

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Well, it’s official. The Kitsap Pumas and Portland Timbers will play to gain entry into the U.S.  Open Cup.

Both teams were tied after four qualifying games and the league was scheduled to hold a lottery early today to decide which team would earn the Cup berth. But Kitsap proposed that Friday’s regularly-scheduled PDL game be used as a tiebreaker — and the Timbers and the United Soccer Leagues signed off on it.

Here’s the first part of a press release sent out by the USL within the past hour:

TAMPA, Fla. – The U.S. Open Cup qualifying spot for the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League’s Northwest Division will be decided on the field this Friday, June 3 when the Kitsap Pumas travel to face the Portland Timbers U23s in a regularly scheduled PDL game at JELD-WEN Field.

The winner-take-all match is set to kick off at 11 a.m. PT, with the outcome determining who advances to the first round of the 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. In the event of a tie, the teams will decide the qualifying spot via penalty kicks. At the request of USL and the two teams involved, U.S. Soccer has granted an extension on its qualification deadline to allow the Northwest Division qualifier to be determined on the field.

Can Pumas Silence Timbers Army?

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Nobody in Portland seems to mention the fact that the Kitsap Pumas beat the Portland Timbers 3-2 in a friendly earlier this season. There was no reporting of that game in Oregon papers; no mention of the result on the Timbers’ blog or website.
You know the Timbers will be fired up when they and their rowdy fans — the Timbers Army — return to Memorial Stadium for the second-round U.S. Open Cup match on Tuesday, June 22.
Here’s a report on the Timbers’ 3-0 win over Sonoma County on Tuesday at PGE Park.
The Timbers, who join the MLS in 2011, recently changed their logo, and it apparently didn’t over too well with the Timbers Army, the support group. This, from the Offsides Blog, was tacked on the end of the game report:
Perhaps the most interesting event during the match was the ten-minute protest by the Timbers Army supporters group. Unhappy with the club’s failure to consult with the ever-expanding group on changes to the classic crest, the supporters, usually boisterous throughout, took a seat and fell silent between the 25th and 35th minutes. With such a small crowd on hand, PGE Park was eerily quiet.

Pumas One of Two PDL Clubs to Advance in Open Cup

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

The Kitsap Pumas earned a spot in the second round of the U.S. Open Cup with a 4- 2 extra time victory over the Bay Area Ambassadors at Bremerton’s Memorial Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Pumas earned a rematch with the Portland Timbers, who defeated the Kitsap team 3-0 in an opening round match a year ago. The Pumas-Timbers will play on Tuesday, June 22, in Bremerton. Here’s the complete bracket. And here’s a look at all of the first round games in a different format. The Pumas and Long Island Roughriders, 2-0 winners over the NY Pancyprian Freedoms, were the only  PDL teams to survive on Tuesday.
