PUYALLUP, WA— Washington Premier South Sound (2-0-0) got just one goal on Sunday after scoring five the previous week. That doesn’t matter to the Shock, who will gladly take their 1-0 win over Spokane Shadow 2 – WPSS FC’s first win over Spokane since the two sides helped found the EPLWA back in 2014.

In the 65th minute Brandon Madsen used an assist from team captain Micah Wenzel to get the Shock’s winner. Up to that point WPSS had the better scoring chances. Finally their efforts paid off.

The Shadow 2 (0-2-0) came west as a newly branded side and will return to Spokane with two losses, no goals, and knowing that previous Shadow streaks are perhaps ripe for falling. Just the day before the Olympic Force also got their first-ever win over Spokane, 2-0.

The Shock and Shadow have been top of the table battlers for three previous seasons. The matches have been close affairs. In their previous six matches Spokane had four wins and two draws. Each of the four wins were by a single goal.
