Select Sounders wrap up season
The Seattle Sounders Select Women defeated the Puget Sound
All-Stars 5-1 to complete their first season with a record 8-0-3.
Laurie Klein scored two goals to help lead the Sounders Select to
the victory over the All-Stars Saturday afternoon at Seattle Memorial
Stadium before 400 people.
Midfielder Sanya Trandum scored the game-winning goal in the
43rd minute off a pass from Joanie Gerpheide. Gerpheide began the
scoring with a goal in the 21st minute. She received the ball when Janelle
Munnis deflected a pass off her foot about 6 yards out. Gerpheide shot from
about 2 yards out on the right side of the goal, and it went into the back
left corner of the net.
The All-Stars only goal came in the 36th minute, tying the score at
1-1. Forward Katie Miyake scored on a penalty kick into the lower
left-hand corner of the net. Miyake earned the penalty kick when she was fouled
by Christina Harsaghy in the penalty box area.
Klein began the second-half scoring with her first goal of the season
in the 48th minute with an assist from Munnis. Michelle Badilla scored in
the 63rd minute on a pass from Dana Kimble. Klein scored her second
goal of the game in the 76th minute on a breakaway. She received the ball
about 35 yards out, dribbled down the field, and shot the ball into the
upper lefthand corner of the net.
"It was a well-played game on our part. We came out tight
(Saturday). Our players have played with a lot of the women from the Puget Sound
team and were trying too hard to prove something to them," said
coach Chance Fry. "Once we were able to loosen up, we were able to turn it
on. Laurie Klein was excellent for us today. She settled the team down."
In 11 games, Seattle outscored its opponents 40 to 4.
The Sounders Select Women are moving forward with the team's
plans to become members of the W-League for 2001. Seattle will form a
division with Vancouver, Portland and possibly two California teams. Seattle
expects to come in as W1 members. This was the first year for the team.
Seattle captured the 2000 provisional W-League title with a 5-0-2 record.
Other provisional W-League teams in the Northwest Division are Portland,
Spokane and Vancouver.
Mount Si graduate Lindsey Jorgensen is the goalkeeper for
the Sounders Select Women's team. She is also attending Washington
State University, where she is the starting goalkeeper and an honors student.
