8 is Not (Nearly) Enough
BeSea FC have struggled all season to fill out a starting 11. This match was played 11 on 8 as the home side only brought 8 players. League rules say you need a minimum of 7 to play a match, so things went ahead with the onus on the Steelheads to make things happen. They did so by scoring 5 goals in the first half and 4 in the second.
Fabian Panduro had 2 goals and 2 assists. Carlos Rodriguez tallied 2 goals. Cade Cooke also got a brace. The other 3 goals were scored by Randy Galvan, Devin Shull and Rio Alcorta. Other assists went to Randy Galvan (2), Rio Alcorta, Carlos Rodriguez, Victor Villasenor, Jacen Stein and Daniel Luna.
SnoCo FC returns to the pitch on Saturday July 13 when they host the Grays Harbor Gulls at 4 PM at Lakewood High School in Smokey Point. It will be the last home match for the Fish this season.
