Stars hang tough in Sunday draw


V2FC 1-1 Seattle

v2fc-full-color-crest-croppedSTARS-LOGO-new-575VANCOUVER, WA—The Victory beat the Stars 6-1 up in Seattle but almost lost this one on a day they had worked so hard to prepare for. It was a double header of action in which Vancouver hosted a PDL match at 2 PM between the Portland Timbers U23 and Sounders U23. That one ended 1-0 for the Timbers.

In the second match Seattle stayed tough throughout, fighting to a 0-0 stalemate at the half. Then the Stars took the lead in the 69th minute on the third goal of the season for Anderson Dias.

The Victory could feel all three points slipping away along with their spot at the top of the EPLWA table.

They managed to grab a point back when defender Aaron Kinnes scored his first goal of the season in the 88th minute to make the final score 1-1.

Vancouver is now 7-1-1 on the season with 22 points but winless in the last two weeks. Seattle stays tied for 5th in the table with a 3-4-2 record and 11 points.


SEA – 69′ Anderson Dias
