What a great season for the girls. They were crowned champions of the NPSL Gold Division for the 2014 season. They had an amazing undefeated record with 10 Wins 2 ties and 0 losses. They scored 41 goals and only gave up 12 all season long. Way to go ladies!
At the Starfire sports complex in Seattle one of our PSA teams won the Washington State Cup title. After winning the semifinals against Kirkland 3-0 early in the day the championship game was played under the lights on field #2 against Federal Way FC. It was a very physical game with several players getting injured throughout the match and needing to come off the field for some tape, stretching, and massaging. All players returned to the game (still hurt) because they didn’t want to let their teammates down. The PSA Strikeforce defense was very staunch not allowing any quality shoots from Federal Way FC. Helping to keep the game tied 0-0 throughout regular time and two 5 minute overtime periods which forced the game in to penalty kicks.
With Federal Way FC scoring 1 out of their 5 PK’s (with two awesome saves by our PSA Strikeforce keeper Jourdyn Tollum) the Strikeforce walk off the field champs scoring 3 out of their 5. Way to go girls, we are all very proud of you!!!!
From Co-Coach Cary Stuart “In our 5 year history we have drilled into the players that defense is what matters on the field. From the forwards to the defenders they know their job is to not allow any shots on goal and it showed as they shutout every team in the tournament. We constantly tell the offensive players that you Only Need 1. The whole experience was amazing and Washington Youth Soccer treated every team first class.”
Here is your 2014/2015 State Champ players!!

Strikeforce 2014 State Cup Champions!
As you may know by now Marysville Youth Soccer Club has merged with the Total Futbol Academy-WA (TFA)/North Sound Soccer Club to become Pilchuck Soccer Alliance (PSA). Pilchuck Soccer Alliance was created as a way to expand our area and as we no longer cover just one city we felt that a regional name would be better. Pilchuck Soccer Alliance will now cover the cities of Marysville, Arlington and Lakewood . With this expansion we get the use of over 100 acres of soccer fields, now one of the largest complexes in the NW. Although Recreational soccer is our main focus with over 1,300 players, with this merger we will have over 14 select teams this year ranging from U10 to U18. All of our select coaches are licensed and experienced and although we will be the largest select club in a North Snohomish County we will concentrate on quality vs quantity.
Development, leadership, team work and sportsmanship is what we focus on. When you take off the pressure of winning and just concentrate on development you find that the lesson plans become different. We try to teach with positive feedback and keep negativity to a minimum.
Pilchuck Soccer Alliance (PSA) is proud to present the following fund raiser.
Behind every great organization are willing and dedicated volunteers that contribute to its success. Your time and talents are wanted! Your boys and girls need you!
A few hours, a few days, a few events...anything you can spare counts and makes a difference. Demonstrate the power of volunteerism to your players by your example, and watch amazing things unfold not only in your life, but in the lives of everyone involved.
Please email or call the Club office for more information.
Remember, this is YOUR Club!
Thank you for your continued support of Pilchuck Soccer Alliance
