New NWPL Women’s Derby kicks off with a ‘friendly’ in Wenatchee


NWPL Primary CrestWENATCHEE,WA— North Central Washington (NCW) Alliance hosted Yakima United in a preseason friendly on Sunday April 23 at the Apple Bowl in Wenatchee. The two Northwest Premier League (NWPL) sides had never met before because NCW are a new club and new to the league this season. Yakima United helped found the NWPL in 2016.

While this match was a preseason ‘friendly,’ the two sides will play each other in a NWPL counter on June 17 at Sozo Sports in Yakima.
