The young squad has started their season strong but with few games on the schedule, will need to find points to repeat as division champions. Issaquah is leading the WPSL NW Division so the Sounders Women will need to take points on their Portland road trip this weekend. The Sounders Women play FCM Portland Saturday June 10th at Newberg high school stadium at 7pm, then turn around and play Westside Metros Sunday at 5pm at Canestoga middle school.
