UW Players Highlight Sounders Women Victory in Home Finale
Tukwila, WA - All current UW student-athletes playing for the Seattle Sounders Women were in the starting 11 in a 5-0 victory against VIctoria Highlanders FC on Friday.
In the final regular-season, sold-out home game for the Sounders, incoming juniors Lindsay Elston, Annie Sittauer and Allie Beahan all recorded shots in the game (1, 2, and 3, respectively). Red-shirt freshman Megan Kufeld played all 90 minutes in goal, recording seven saves and earning the shutout.
Former Husky Veronica Perez had two goals in the game, bringing her goal total up to 11 goals in the regular season (14 for the entire year), good for second-most goals in the W-League. She scored both goals in the second half, making case for W-League MVP.
The Sounders Women currently sit in second place in the Western Conference with 25 points. The team will travel to California for a Wednesday match-up against Santa Clarita, a Friday game on Los Angeles, and then a game against current first-place Pali Blues on Sunday to wrap up the regular season before post-season play.
