Pierce County away match moved to Burien's Highline Stadium

Last match between the two NPSL newcomers produced a memorable finish in 2-2 draw

Pierce County away match moved to Burien’s Highline Stadium


NPSL Northwest Division-leading Kitsap SC’s game against Pierce County FC on Saturday night has been moved to Highline Stadium at Highline High School in Burien.

Kickoff for the contest is still at 7 p.m. Both teams are in their first seasons in the NPSL.

The contest will be Kitsap SC’s last away match of the regular season — Kitsap has a perfect record away from home, winning all four matches on the road. Kitsap won its last game on Wednesday, defeating OSA FC 1-0 at Starfire Stadium on a rocket of a goal by Santi DiGiuseppe.

Kitsap’s last match against Pierce County on June 11 was also memorable, a 2-2 draw at Bremerton’s Gordon Field.. Pierce County’s Ettore Ballestracci scored what looked to be the match winner four minutes into injury time, but Kitsap’s Tyler LaCourse nodded in a free kick at the death to earn a point.

Kitsap SC currently leads the NPSL Northwest Division with 17 points, ahead of FCM Portland (12), OSA FC (11) and PDX FC (10).
