Pumas continue unbeaten streak

The Kitsap Pumas still have a donut in the loss column.

North Sound was the latest squad to fall to the first-place Bremerton soccer team, which won 1-0 at Goddard Stadium last Sunday.

Kitsap midfielder Matt Friesen picked up the lone goal with a score in the 27th minute.

The SeaWolves, fifth in the Northwest Division, were unable to notch a goal past the Pumas’ defense.

The Pumas, meanwhile, improved to 5-0-1 with 16 points for the season. They have also recorded four shutouts, having allowed two goals in six games.

Kitsap’s next game is against the Portland Timbers U23 squad on the road Friday. Portland is the defending league champion. Game time is set for 11 a.m. Both teams recorded a 0-0 tie in their previous meeting last month.

The Premier Development League announced earlier this week that the winner of Friday’s game will advance to the 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup as a representative of the division.

If the two teams tie, they will settle the game in penalty kicks.

The Open Cup includes 40 teams from the five tiers of American professional soccer who faceoff in a tournament from June through October.
