BREMERTON, WA—Wenatchee FC (1-2-0, 3 points) got a first half hat trick from Eleazar Galvan to beat the Olympic Force (0-2-0, 0 points) on Sunay May 10 at Gordon Field. Galvan also assisted on a stoppage time goal by Matheus Correa. Izzy Deluna scored the Force’s goal.

Two teams searching for their first win of the season battled it out under sunny Mothers Day skies. Early on Wenatchee FC showed they wanted the three points. Galvan’s first goal came only three-plus minutes into the match. He finished a through ball from Eduardo Perez in tight quarters around the left side of the six yard box.

Only few minutes later in the 10th minute it was 2-0 for the Capitals when Galvan intercepted a Force pass on the right, made one move into the penalty area, then shot across the goal mouth to the far corner.

Eleazar’s onslaught was complete in the 22nd minute when he returned to the left flank. This time he beat his defender and hit one near post. It was already 3-0 Wenatchee FC.

The Force stablized their play and then gained a bit of momentum back when Izzy Deluna collected a loos ball and hit the rofo of the Wenatchee goal from the left side at close range in the 41st minute.

The second half was largely uneventful.  In added time Galvan was still speedy, and his final run up the field produced Wenatchee’s fourth goal when Matheus Correa converted in the 91st.

Wenatchee FC hosts Central Washington rivals Yakima United FC on Sunday at Wenatchee Valley CC at 6 PM.

WFC on “EPLWA Home Towns”

A visit to Wenatchee, Washington, USA…Home Town of Wenatchee FC “Capitals” and supporters group The Bridge Mafia.

“EPLWA Home Towns sponsored by Ruffneck Scarves” makes its debut this season as a web TV show that goes on the scene at home matches of Evergreen Premier League clubs and captures the experience of players and fans and shares them online.

“We really want to share the growing club cultures in our league and to share the experiences of match day around the state of Washington,” says EPLWA Director of Communications David Falk. “So we are using the platform of this internet video show to bring the Evergreen Premier League to a wider audience.” The show will air on the EPLWA YouTube Channel and will share clips on the EPLWA Facebook Page.

Ruffneck Scarves has been a league partner since the very beginning. The soccer scarf company was eager to help with the project. They are supplying production equipment.

WFC goes with Under Armour

under-armour-logo_largeAfter a long and thorough process to find a product that will fulfill several needs for Wenatchee FC and Wenatchee FC Youth, we are excited to announce that we are now officially an Under Armour Club. Under Armour is one of the fastest growing companies in the soccer market around the world.

“They produce an extremely well constructed, durable, functional, stylish and comfortable product that we believe will suit our needs well,” says Wenatchee FC Youth Marketing Director Matt Wisen.

“Under Armour will be well represented in our club with warmups, kits, backpacks, coaches apparel, banners at games, soccer balls, pinnies, base layers, and more.”

Starting May 3, players and fans will begin seeing UA products on the field kicking off with the Wenatchee FC semi pro. The Capitals will debut white shirts with black shorts in the home opener at Wenatchee Valley Community College when WFC hosts the Spokane Shadow at 6 PM in an Evergreen Premier League match.

“We will wear white shirts, black shorts and white socks at home this season,” says Capitals co-owner Javier Reyna. “We will continue with the Joma kits when we are away (Yellow, Black) for this season, and then wear Under Armor blacks away starting in 2016.”

Wenatchee FC had earlier control of the match in the Seattle end with consecutive corner kicks. The first featured a header that Seattle goalkeeper Scott Barnum tipped over the crossbar. After that though the Stars dominated the half.

In the 10th minute Cornelius Ieremie became the first goal-scorer of 2015 when he put the Stars up 1-0.

It was 2-0 Seattle 15 minutes later when Ieremie directed the ball towards goal and Peiman Alessandro finished the job for the score.

Wenatchee continued to struggle to gain possession and the half ended 2-0 for the Stars.

In the second half the Capitals eased into the match. Their possession increased, and finally in the 65th minute they were given new hope when Josh Alvarez headed home a goal that started out of a Wenatchee throw-in (assist) from Fabian Alvarez.

Chances were exchanged the rest of the way, but the Stars kept the Capitals out to claim the 2-1 win. It is Seattle’s third straight win over Wenatchee. Last year as the EPLWA was launched Seattle topped the Capitals 5-1 and 2-1.

This week Wenatchee comes home to celebrate the Apple Blossom Festival and then host the defending champion Spokane Shadow Sunday May 3 at 6 PM at Wenatchee Valley Community College.
