Bellingham United, champions of Washington-based Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) three years running, finished second at Nationals last weekend in Oklahoma. The Hammers posted updates on their progress via their Facebook page.
BUFC got going with a bang and a 12-2 win over Barilleros in their first match of the PASL Tournament. Next they scraped by with a 5-4 win over Boulder FK. Things got even closer in the semifinals when the Hammers went to a penalty kick shoot out to take a 3-2 win over Austin FC. This advanced Bellingham to Final to face local club Tulsa Tornados FC.
Tulsa jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the Championship Match before the Hammers could answer. They did pull to within 5-3 but eventually dropped the match 6-3.
