[PDL] The Kitsap Pumas won their first USL PDL championship with a 1-0 victory against the Laredo Heat on Robby Christner's goal Saturday night at Bremerton (Wash.) Memorial Stadium.

After a pair of shots by Elliott Fauske and Christner had challenged the Heat’s defense early, Christner was on hand in the 11th minute to put away what would prove to the be the only goal of the game when he tapped in a pass from Bryan Bur ke just six yards out.

“I don’t think words can really describe it,” Pumas captain Daniel Scott said. “I mean, if I think if we look back to the beginning of the season there was so much sacrifice that goes into this team. A good amount of us live over in the Seattle area and have to make the commute over here three, four days a week, sometimes five times on the weekend, so there’s a lot of personal sacrifice that we put in, but it paid off and it was worth every minute of it.”

The Pumas, who are in their third season, are coached by Seattle Sounders broadcaster and former Seattle University men's coach Peter Fewing.
