Match report from Ron Stickney:
Mark Hogenhout scored a hat trick against the
team he played for last season (when they were called the Seattle BigFoot),
leading the visiting Spokane Shadow to a 5-0 win over the Seattle Sounders
Selects. Zach Kingsley notched a pair of goals. The match was a Premier
Development League qualifier for the US Open Cup. Both Hogenhout and Kingsley
played last fall for the University of Washington.
Admission was free.
8' Hogenhout. Hogenhout converted Spokane's first shot when
he took a square pass 25 yards from goal in the center, settled it, and
bent a shot over goalkeeper Jonas Tanzer, who was off his line, and into
the top right corner.
Seattle looked like they would make a match of it early. Gabe Provenza
put a 25-yard free kick just over the bar. Joe Partridge's low shot was
pushed just wide of the far post by Brian Mullen and on the corner kick
Joe Vega's header was kicked away by Hogenhout from his station at the
far post. Peter Bergford dropped to Vega in the arc for a shot, but Mullen
made the diving save.
34' Kingsley (Higgins). Then the tide shifted back in Spokane's
favor for most of the rest of the match as Seattle's mids and backs didn't
defend well. Zane Higgins pulled the ball back and then burst forward,
beating right back Jeff Whiting as he would many times that night, and
sent a low cross in front of the goal mouth for the charging Kingsley to
38' Hogenhout. Higgins sent another of his dangerous low balls
across the goal mouth from the left side. The ball was weakly cleared to
the top of the arc where the unmarked Hogenhout was waiting, said thank
you, and shot accurately inside the left post.
Jamie Bloomstine took the last good chance in the half for the Selects
when his blast from 20 yards was slightly deflected towards the lower left
corner, but Mullen made the save.
Halftime: Seattle 0 – 3 Spokane
James Dickinson replaced Tanzer in goal for Seattle at the break. Tanzer
was not having a good night.
62' Hogenhout. Hogenhout completed the hat trick when he took
the ball 35 yards out near the right touch line, beat his marker to the
inside, advanced up the middle to the arc, and fired past Dickinson.
Dickinson saved shots from just inside the 18 by Billy Sleeth, then
by Joe Marks who had only the keeper to beat, then by Kingsley who had
been put through on the right.
Seattle substitute Andrew Smith nearly broke the shutout 10 minutes
from time when his shot from the right was deflected by a defender and
rolled just wide of the far post.
85' Kingsley (Rose). Jeff Rose sent a through pass nicely to
Kingsley on a timed run, putting Kingsley alone against Dickinson. Dickinson
charged off his line but Kingsley beat him with a low shot.
