Meet your team: The Spokane Shadow

The Spokane SC Shadow are wrapping up their first season in the National Premier Soccer League's Northwest Conference. If you haven't heard, Spokane's highest level of soccer recently moved up to the NPSL after two Evergreen Premier League championships. This is the first time the team has competed in a national league since 2005.

This past weekend, the Shadow hosted two conference foes. They lost both matches, falling 1-0 to Kitsap SC on Saturday and 2-1 against FCM Portland on Sunday. The Shadow's only goal came from Zack Hamer on a penalty kick. They're sitting at fifth place in the six-team conference with 6 points (a 1-4-3 record).

While there's no chance for a Shadow playoff berth, there are two more opportunities to catch them at home this season. They next host Seattle's OSA FC at SFCC on Wednesday, June 28 at 7 pm. Visit spokanesoccerclubshadow.org for the complete schedule.
