The following is a press release from the Sounders Women.

The Seattle Sounders Women started the year undefeated and they maintained the perfect record dispatching TSS Rovers on Saturday night July 7 at Sunset Stadium in Sumner.

With the win, the ladies in green finish as Champions of the WPSL Northwest Division for the third year in a row and will host the WPSL Western Conference Championships at Starfire Sports Stadium on July 14 and July 15.

Bethany Balcer continued her run of good form with a goal in the 21st minute to pace the Sounders Women in a dominating performance.

Kristen Pavlitsko scored in the 15th minute as the Sounders Women hammered the TSS Rovers goal and Jenna Holtz piled on the goals with a 32nd minute strike. Half time would stand at 3-0 with the Sounders Women in full control.

Georgia Cloepfil scored in the 59th minute and Dom Bond-Flasza put one away in the 84th minute. Balcer put the exclamation point on the game in the 85th minute and the performance was complete at 6-1 for the Sounders Women.
