Hornets Finish Week 2-0 in League Play

Thursday the Hornets faced Gig Harbor.  The short-handed Hornets borrowed Gig Harbor's starting goalie for the contest, officially rendering the game an Enumclaw forfeit.  But the teams played on, ending with an 18-4 Gig Harbor win.  Hayley Sonneson scored three in the Hornet loss. Bailey Sexton scored one.

This is a game that could determine the East Division champion, so we would love to see a good Enumclaw crowd.

May 3rd Newport Game Time/Location Changed

Due to a schedule conflict with Newport's Head Coach, who is coaching a Rain City team at the Junior Olympics Qualifier, we have changed the time and location of our game against Newport. Instead of playing at 12:30 at home, we'll play at 2:30 at Newport. Newport's home pool is at the Newport Hills Swim and Tennis Club, 5464 119th Ave., SE, Bellevue, WA.

The team S'more Night will still take place after the game, starting at 6:00, at Coach Ken's house, More information to come.
