BELLINGHAM, WA— The Evergreen Premier League announces that Jason Twaddle of South Sound FC and Ramon Ramos of Seattle Stars FC are the EPLWA Rock’em Socks Players of the Week for June 19, 2016. Both will receive a pair of EPLWA Rock’em Socks in honor of their accomplishments.
OFFENSIVE: Jason Twaddle (South Sound FC)
On Saturday June 18 at Gordon Field Jason Twaddle scored a hat trick for the visiting Shock. Jason gave South Sound three different leads with his goals in what was an eventual 3-3 tie with the Olympic Force.
“Jason is new to the team this year,” says South Sound Head Coach Adam Becker. “He joined us after he was cleared to play by Seattle University.” Twaddle turned heads last weekend when he “arrived” with a three-goal performance.
“What can I say, his work off the ball was able to get him in key positions to score some very well-worked goals,” Becker says. “He’s a big strong force up top that has pace and is techniqual on the ball. He makes smart runs without the ball to create space to attack into.”
DEFENSIVE: Ramon Ramos (Seattle Stars FC)
The Seattle Stars went into last weekend without a win yet this season. Away matches at Wenatchee and at South Sound appeared on paper to be tough assignments for Seattle. Tough, but winnable, it turns out. The Stars scored a 2-1 win at the Apple Bowl on Saturday and then notched a 1-0 shutout win on Sunday at Curtis High School.
It was a strong defensive effort for Seattle. Right in the middle of it all as central defender is Ramon Ramos. “Team Captain Ramon Ramos has been the most consistent player in the back line since day one of the team existence,” says Stars Head Coach Omar Lara. “He’s started for the Stars nearly every game. This weekend in back to back games he was crucial in taking away scoring opportunities. He is also making his mark in set pieces, scoring twice this season.”
