Union knock Shock out of first in 0-0 draw


CENTRALIA, WA— The Twin City Union showed what’s up by knocking the South Sound Shock down – and out of first place in the NWPL.

There were no goals in the match but the 0-0 stalemate was a win of sorts for the home side. The Union lost 2-0 to South Sound earlier in the season in their first-ever league match. Now the Orange and Blue feel like they are turning their season the right direction.

Since being one of Spokane’s 9-goal victims TCU has gone unbeaten with a win and two draws. The Centralia / Chehalis crew are now 1-2-2 with 5 points, good enough for third in the league but a distance behind the Shadow and Shock.

South Sound (3-0-2) was coming off of an emotional high from a big home win ove Spokane. They couldn’t muster the same kind of performance this time and paid the price with a drop to second place though they remain the only unbeaten team in the league.

The Shock outshot the Union 7-3 but couldn’t get anything past TCU goalkeeper Sunny DeBoer. The Union struggled to create chances and were blanked by Shock goalkeeper Takara Matsui.
