Seattle Stars 4-2 Yakima United
The Stars (3-4-1, 10 points) have caught the Hoppers (3-5-1, 10 points) in the standings with a 4-2 win Sunday at Goddard Stadium. Yakima began brightly with a goal in the 3rd minute that was struck by Junior Garcia and deflected in off of a Seattle player. Seattle didn’t get even until the 30th minute when Aleusey Gubark scored his first EPLWA goal. Just like the Olympic-Bellingham match, this one featured most of the goals in the second half. Yakima went up 2-1 in the 50th minute on a goal from Hector Valdovinos, his 5th of the season. From that point onward Seattle would get three straight scores to take over the match. Responding right away to the Yakima lead, Seattle scored in the 52nd thanks to Tony Clarke (scoring his first of the year.) In the 65th minute the Stars went up 3-2 when their leading scorer (3 goals) Alexus Mardari scored. In stoppage time the final score was made complete when Juan Maldonado got his second of the season to make it 4-2.
