“Stingy Six” strikes again for South Sound

The Stingy Six are bad news for opposing EPLWA offenses.

South Sound FC has given up the fewest goals in the EPLWA this season.

In ten matches their opponents have managed just six goals. The club has labelled their defense and goalkeeper Chris Kintz as the “Stingy Six.” Kintz and company got another shut out against the Hoppers and it proved to be a big one as they hold on to first place in the league by one thin point over Vancouver Victory FC.

SSFC took the lead in the 19th minute when Scotty Hanson put away a through-ball from Luke Broz. It was Hanson’s 3rd goal of the year.

It was 2-0 to South Sound in the 33rd minute. That’s when speedy Miguel Angeles got behind the Hoppers defense on a pass from JJ Schmeck and converted the goal. It was his second on the season.

Those two moments of offense were more than enough for the Shock defense to nail down another win.

Kintz seems to have a big one-on-one save every match, and he did it again in the 78th on a great chance denied to the Hoppers.

Late-on the match got a bit chippy as Schmeck and Micah Wenzel were yellow-carded for the victors.

South Sound is now 8-1-1 after ten matches with 25 standings points. Yakima is now 3-7-1 and remains on 10 points.

The match drew an announced audience of 149.
