MOST COMMENTED

[PORTLAND-SEATTLE] It may be the biggest upset in the history of women's soccer in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle knocked off No. 8 Portland, 2-0, Friday night. The Pilots surrendered two first-half goals and the Redhawks held on for the shutout to improve to 4-1-0 on the season.

Emma Levy put Seattle on top with a goal in the 20th minute on an assist from Shawna Anderson. Stephanie Verdoia provided an insurance goal five minutes later with Megan Daniels cre dited with an assist.

“I am really excited for the team," said  Seattle coach Julie Woodward. "This is the highest-ranked opponent we have ever played. We had a pretty good week of practice, and we were focused and concentrating on doing all the little things right. I am just proud of the team’s efforts, beginning to end."

Portland held an 18-10 advantage in shots and 10-3 margin in corner kicks for the match as it possessed the ball for nearly 60 percent of the game, primarily in the Redhawk half. But the Pilots couldn't beat goalkeeper Madison Goverde.

“To get a shutout against a team like Portland has to make you feel good," added Woodward. "Our defense has been solid every game this year. Madison, hands down, has been the best player this year; she has been outstanding in all five games this season."

The consecutive losses for Portland are the first since the 2007 season when the Pilots lost back-to-back road games to UCLA and USC. They lost last weekend at San Diego State.
