Washington Timbers Women’s First Team Gears Up for New Season
The Washington Timbers Women’s First Team are ready to once again provide a summer of quality soccer with hopes to avenge their 3-1 loss to the Seattle Stars FC in last season’s Northwest Premier League (NWPL) championship.
“I’m very proud of what this team has done in two years, competing for the championship both years has established a culture of success that people want to be a part of,” said Executive Director, Sean Janson.
On June 1st, the Timbers are hosting a rematch of last season championship match against the Stars.
“Coming to the Timbers from Seattle United, I’m very familiar with the quality of players in the Seattle area and I look forward to facing the Stars in a couple months,” said Coach Evan Gaul.
The Timbers open their 2019 season against the NCW Alliance FC on May 5th while hosting their first home match of the season on May 18th against the Capital FC.
Coach Gaul took the reins from Kat Tarr, who stepped down due to the birth of her daughter. Coach Gaul looks to continue the tremendous success of the team witnessed under Tarr, who led the team to two championship appearances and winning it all in 2017. Coach Gaul has experience coaching high-level women’s soccer having coached in the National Women’s Soccer League with the Seattle Reign FC.
“With my experience coaching at the top Women’s level, I will bring a competitive platform for the team to be successful,” said Gaul.
Comprised of current, former and aspiring college players, the Washington Timbers First Team represents the highest level of women soccer available in Southwest Washington. The NWPL is comprised of teams from throughout the state of Washington and includes Capital FC out of Salem, Oregon.
The Timbers play their home matches at the Harmony Sports Complex on NE 18th St & NE 192nd Ave in Vancouver, and their season runs from April to July.
