March 22 v. Gala PFA
The Steelheads will host Gala Football Club’s new men’s team, Pro Focus Academy (PFA) on Sunday March 22 at 3 PM in Smokey Point. Gala PFA are part of the new WWPL Second Division. The club features talented U-19 players who won a string of tournaments last summer and are eager to show they are ready to move up to Snoco FC. Gala PFA are partners with the Steelheads in creating a pipeline from older youth to adult men’s elite soccer in Snohomish County. This match is a great chance for both clubs to mingle and discover our common bonds through soccer.
March 29 v. Wenatchee Valley All Stars
In 2019 Snohomish County traveled to Wenatchee to play a preseason friendly just as Wenatchee were getting a program together. That match ended in a 1-1 draw as Gunnar Stohl scored late on to rescue the Fish. Now Wenatchee have had a year to organize and have selected a name and crest. They return the favor by coming over to our side of the mountains for a Sunday matinee match at 3 PM at LHS. Get a look at what is happening in Wenatchee soccer and how the Fish are doing to get ready for the regular season.
April 11 v. Edmonds Community College Tritons
It’s the historic first-ever meeting between the Steelheads and NWAC school Edmonds CC Tritons. Several current Steelheads played college soccer at Edmonds, and Steelheads Director of Soccer and Head Coach Dagi Kesim is looking forward to observing the talent the Tritons and their Head Coach Ozzy Erkut have to offer ahead of their next season. The match will be a gathering of plenty of Snohomish-based players who know each other, on both sides. The contest takes place on a Saturday at 3 PM at Lakewood High School.
The Steelheads will begin announcing their 2020 WWPL Schedule along with the Gala PFA WWPL 2 Schedule in the coming weeks.
