Seattle jumped out to an early lead in this afternoon’s final at Gordon Drummond Field in Norman, OK, when midfielder Jenna Holtz scored off an assist from Georgia Cloepfil. Pensacola FC answered quickly with an unassisted header from Anele Komani at the 9-minute mark.

Early in the second half, the Sounders got their second goal from Celia Jimenez Delgato, a header off another assist from Cloepfil.

Seattle would hang on to the lead and add a third and final goal in the closing minutes of stoppage time, thanks to Pascale Dumesnil.

The Sounders’ players and staff each received medals following the win and were presented with the Jerry Zanelli Cup, named after the founder and former commissioner of the WPSL.
