Vancouver Victory 4, Blackhills FC 0
Behind a goal and two assists from Maddie Goss and a clean sheet by goalkeeper Chantal Reyes, the Vancouver Victory clinched the top spot in the table and took home the 2021 Northwest Premier League championship with their 4-0 win over Blackhills FC.
Needing to win, draw, or lose by less than seven goals, Vancouver took care of business, starting with a goal from Rachel Anderson in the 14th minute on Maddie Goss’ first assist of the game. Despite most of the possession in the first half, the two teams went to the break just separated by the one goal. But Mary Swisher made it 2-0 less than ten minutes into the second half off of another assist from Goss, then Goss scored one of her own in the 65th minute to make it 3-0. Makayla Roggow assisted Goss’ goal and then got one of her own in the 75th to cement the victory for the Victory.
Vancouver finished the four team, six game season with a 5-1-0 record and 15 points, three points ahead of second place Yakima United. This is the second championship for the Vancouver Victory/Washington Timbers. They won the title in 2017 while playing as the Timbers.
Blackhills finished their season at 3-3-0 with nine points and a third place finish.
