Evergreen Premier League President Peter Ostrovsky had to be out of state for work and so it was decided that I would be the league representative on hand to present the EPLWA Trophy if it was clinched last weekend. This meant taking the train to Vancouver to be there for the Saturday July 23 match between V2FC and the Spokane Shadow.
The six games played July 23-24 in the Evergreen Premier League have helped decide the 2016 Champions. Vancouver Victory FC got the result they needed and added to their win total on Sunday to raise the Evergreen Premier League Trophy presented by Ruffneck Scarves. A heated race continues for second place as well as other spots in the table.
Vancouver Victory are the 2016 Champions of the Evergreen Premier League after they beat the Olympic Force 3-2 on Sunday in Bremerton. The trophy was actually clinched during the Vancouver match when South Sound rallied to beat Bellingham 3-2 in Tacoma.
The Evergreen Premier League trophy race was not decided on Saturday July 23 so now the action and attention continues today (Sunday July 24) as Vancouver Victory (29 points) play at Olympic Force and Bellingham United (25 points) play at South Sound FC.
