VANCOUVER, WA— The drop from unbeaten to eliminated was completed today for the reeling Victory of Vancouver as the Olympic Force visited McKenzie Stadium and came away with the first shutout in their EPLWA history.
Once 7-0-0, V2FC is now 7-5-1 and can’t catch either the Spokane Shadow or the South Sound Shock for the top of the table. The Olympic Force continue to improve their form and their overall record. They are now 5-7-0 and have an eye on finishing as high a fourth place.
The Victory said goodbye to their Director of Development Sunny Dulai at halftime. Sunny is heading home to India after nearly two decades in Southwest Washington soccer.
The winning goal was scored by Leo Potts. Just minutes after he was put in via a first half substitution he connected with a Zach Hansen assist to provide all the scoring the Force would need in the 35th minute of play. It was Potts’ 3rd goal of the season.
Guilherme Atanes notched the shutout for Olympic, their first as an EPLWA club.
The Victory have now been shut out three straight league matches. Vancouver will try to break that streak in the club’s home and season finale Sunday July 26 at 2 PM at McKenzie Stadium against Yakima United FC.
