The Spokane Shadow Men's First Team plays host to PDX FC Friday evening at Spokane Falls CC Stadium at 6:00 to finish out the 2019 campaign.
The team heads into the final game of the season after falling 4-1 on the weekend to OSA Seattle FC. The contest started well for the Shadow with some fantastic play in the offensive end, but they were only able to produce one goal for their efforts with Jake Levine scoring via Tanner Williams nine minutes in.
The visitors were able to pull even in the 28th and added another just before halftime for a lead at the break. A third in the 68th gave them command of the match and a penalty five minutes from time locked up the result, eliminating Spokane from the postseason picture.
Facing two of the top sides from their Rainier Conference in EPLWA, the Shadow U23s fell 2-0 twice on the weekend. Washington Premier controlled much of the match Saturday, but were only able to get two past Peter Byrne in the 16th and 77th minutes. Sunday's contest with PacNW was a more evenly played affair, but the league's all-time leading scorer Tyler Bjork did what he does and broke through with two goals in the final 10 minutes to give the visitors the victory.
COMING UP... Friday & Saturday
The Shadow men's sides close out their home slate this weekend with one game each. The First Team plays host to PDX FC Friday night at 6:00 at SFCC while the U23s finish host Oly-Pen Force at the Spokane Shadow Polo Grounds Saturday at 3:00.
