This is about to change.
While I am not closing the GOALKitsap and GOALTacoma blogs for good, they are going to go on hiatus when it comes to covering the Kitsap Pumas and Tacoma Tide FC.
The NEW place to find my blogs about Kitsap Pumas Soccer Club news is in the centralized GOALSeattle.com blog, right HERE.
The GOALSeattle blog and website has the motto "The Sound of Soccer," so now I will work on living up to that rally cry by covering Sounders FC, Kitsap, Tacoma, and local colleges in the GOALSeattle blog.
Questions? Want to volunteer to blog local Kitsap soccer news here?

The eye-opening development is that Seattle is listed as a club competing along with Tacoma Tide and the new Kitsap Pumas next season.
Seattle (as well as Kitsap) both have a "TBA" (To be announced) listed after their names:
Northwest Division: Abbotsford Mariners, Cascade Surge, Kitsap (TBA), Portland Timbers U23, Seattle (TBA), Spokane Spiders, Tacoma Tide, Vancouver Whitecaps Residency, Victoria Highlanders, Yakima Reds.
It is not yet known who will be running the Seattle club. Will it be Sounders FC, since MLS recently disbanded its reserve league? Could it be Seattle Wolves FC, who hope to join the USL Second Division in 2010? The Wolves have previously told me that they will be in the Pacific Coast Soccer League again in 2009, but perhaps after the recent league meetings this has changed.

Here's a sneak peek at possible jersey combinations for Kitsap Pumas in 2009. Owner Robin Waite favors the Puma brand, and blue and white stripes. The shorts could be either blue or white, and the socks will stand out in either stripes, or more likely yellow. Waite says the socks color would help the club better differentiate from the opponent when passing on the go.
NOTE: The Puma 'design' above is NOT the club logo / crest. It is a preliminary concept to introduce the name 'Pumas' and the club mascot Pedro. A final crest has not been decided upon, but could include a puma or it could even honor Chief Kitsap in some way.

After a fantastic year that had the Pirate Soccer team winning 11 straight games and going undefeated in 15 games the Pirates streak finally ended.
Saturday Playoff Game
The Pirates went head to head with #1 rank Walla Walla going into double overtime tied at 0’s. Walla Walla was able to capitalize on a free kick from 23 yards out in the 108 minute to win in sudden death overtime. The Pirates played hard all game and it was a tough match.

Jase Hall had 5 saves in goal
Sunday 3rd-4th Place Game
Trying to rebound after a long hard fight the day before the Pirated fell to Spokane CC with a score of 1-0. Spokane scored in the 70th minute off a free kick from 23 yards out (just like the day before).
Shots: PC 8 Spokane 6
It was a great season for us and the guys represented the college really well. They played hard all weekend and had their chances to play for a championship. The guys played good soccer and we only lost because the other teams hit fantastic free kicks that resulted in goals, the other teams really had to work for their win.
