Shadow Blank OSA 3-0 in NPSL Home Opener

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

 

Tanner Williams propelled the Spokane Shadow to a 3-0 victory over visiting OSA FC in front of a fantastic crowd of 907 Wednesday evening at Spokane Falls CC. Two recent products of the club, Chase Reidt and Jake Levine, scored the other two goals. 

The brilliant night from Williams started in the 17th minute when he clipped a ball into Chase Reidt as he broke past the back line, finishing with a little shot past the keeper. 

In the 21st minute a quick transition up the field led to Williams' goal. Karl Muelheims made a great play chesting the ball down at midfield to an awaiting Mike Ramos, who lofted a perfect ball over the back line. Williams beat the keeper to the ball just inside the box for the finish. 

Williams combined with Jake Levine for the final goal to cap the match. Williams would eventually deliver a short cross inside the box with Levine sliding in to finish at point blank range in the 89th minute.

The Spokane Shadow First Team is on the road this weekend for a pair of NPSL games in greater Portland, facing PDX FC at 1:00 on Saturday and FCM Portland at 2:00 on Sunday. Shadow U23 are also on the road for two in the Evergreen Premier League, playing Oly Town Saturday and Vancouver (WA) Sunday. The two sides then host a doubleheader Saturday June 9 at the Spokane Shadow Complex (former Polo Grounds) as part of a club-wide jamboree. The First Team will square off against 2017 division champion Kitsap at 3:00 in a game broadcast on SWX with the Shadow U23s playing Yakima United immediately after.
