The Pali Blues (8-0-0, 24 pts.) handed the Seattle Sounders Women (5-1-1, 16 pts.) their first loss of the season Wednesday night at the Starfire Sports Complex, using two early goals to win the game 2-0. Lynn Williams scored in the fifth minute, and Nikki Washington added a second goal just one minute later.
The Sounders dominated the second half but could not recover from the two-goal deficit. Seattle was without all of its Olympic-team players – Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux – who just returned from national team duty in Sweden. A full recap will follow on Equalizer Soccer.
