Match report by Ron Stickney:
The Seattle Sounders Select Women were in full control from start to finish, beating the Vancouver LadySixers 9-0. This was the final provisional W-League match for Seattle, who have two friendlies remaining in their inaugural season.

Karen Hardy opened the flood gates with the first goal in the 10th minute. Tara Bilanski, Michele Badilla and Janelle Munnis each scored twice.

The Select have lost several players who returned to their college teams. Newcomers Julie Woodward and Christina Barton (wife of Sounder Kieran Barton) played their first minutes for the Select. Playing their final match of the season for the team were Lindsey Jorgensen and Amy Sprague.

First Half

Seattle had chances starting in the first minute, as Badilla, Bilanski and Elle Curinga all missed their first shots. Vancouver's first shot came in the 10th when Sarah Regan was sprung on the left for a 10-yard shot from a steep angle, saved at the near post by Jorgensen.

10' Hardy (Gerpheide). Joanie Gerpheide sent an aerial cross from the right side into a sparsely-populated penalty area and Hardy ran onto it unmarked to head a shot just under the crossbar. Seattle 1-0.

12' Bilanski. Bilanski took a free kick from just outside the top left corner of the penalty area and placed it into the top near corner. Goalkeeper Theresa Nutall tried to catch it but the ball slipped out of her grasp and into the goal. Seattle 2-0.

27' Badilla (Gerpheide). Sanya Trandum's pass put Gerpheide free into the penalty area for a shot from 10 yards on the right that was pushed wide by Nutall for a corner. Gerpheide's corner kick to the far post was volleyed in by Badilla from 8 yards. Seattle 3-0.

36' Bilanski (PK). Emily Hoag replaced the shell-shocked Nutall in goal and within two minutes was whistled for a foul in the area. Trandum sprung Hardy on the left and she pushed the ball around the advancing Hoag. The ball would probably have gone over the line for a goal kick, but Hoag got Hardy's foot, tripping her, and referee Jeff Hosking awarded a penalty kick. Bilanski placed the PK into the lower left corner, beating Hoag. Seattle 4-0.

Halftime: Seattle 4 - 0 Vancouver

Seattle resumed their scoring spree after the break, netting their first two shots of the second half.

47' Sprague (Birks). Jen Birks fed the ball to Sprague, who carried it up the touch line towards the right corner. Sprague sent in a long shot/cross that just cleared Hoag's fingertips and dove into the top far corner. Seattle 5-0.

48' Gerpheide (Birks). Birks put Gerpheide through up the middle, and a low shot from the spot went under the collapsing Hoag. Seattle 6-0.

Vancouver's best chance came in the 59th minute when Ciara McLoughlin's shot from the left side was rejected only by the crossbar.

68' Munnis (Barton). Four minutes after entering the match, Barton put a free kick from near the halfway line beyond Vancouver's back line. Munnis beat Hoag to the ball and touched it softly over the keeper just before Hoag knocked Munnis down. The ball bounced calmly into the net. Seattle 7-0.

At 72' Nutall re-entered the match in goal, as Hoag had had enough.

75' Badilla (Mueller). Dana Kimble carried the ball up the middle on the attack and served a short, diagonal pass rightward to Brenda Mueller, who could have shot from 8 yards but instead passed square for Badilla, who got around Nutall and finished into an empty net. Seattle 8-0.

89' Munnis (Mueller). Mueller's pass put Munnis free into the area on the right, and she blasted her shot inside the far post to close out the scoring. Seattle 9-0.
