Seattle Sounders Women defeated Pensacola FC, 3-1, to capture the WPSL for the first time since it joined the 108-team league in 2016 after the W-League folded. Georgia Cloepfil
who has played in Australia, Sweden and South Korea since graduating from Division III Macalester College, set incoming Florida State freshman Kirsten Pavlisko
and Spanish international
Celia Jimenez Delgato
for the first two Seattle goals. Pascale Dumesnil closed out the scoring in stoppage time.
"It’s an incredible feeling, a long journey but a journey I
don’t want to end.” Sounders coach Scott Ford
said. “It’s a special feeling.”
The Sounders, who finished with a 10-0-1 record, defeated Fire & Ice
SC, the defending league champion from St. Louis, in the semifinals.
Former Sounders Women players include Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, Megan
Rapinoe, Sydney Leroux and Rose Lavelle.
