Playoff Hopes Alive

Three teams remain in the playoff hunt.  Our Sounders, the Colorado Rush, and the Pali Blues.

Pali has the hardest road; with one game remaining, they must win and hope that both the Sounders & Rush lose out.

The Rush have the easiest route with three games remaining; win and they are in.  Even three consecutive draws eliminates Pali and Seattle.

Seattle is also in a must-win situation.  A tough road-win against the table-topping Whitecaps gives us hope, but does not guarantee a spot in the Western Conference Championship.  The winner of that Championship moves on to the W-League Final Four in Santa Clarita at the end of the month.

With a win in Victoria Saturday, everything hinges on what the Colorado Rush do this week:

Tonight, the Rush travel to the Colorado Force.  A Force win gives us a lot of hope as later in the week the Rush travel to Santa Clarita and finish up with a Saturday night matchup at Pali, two of the weaker sides in the W-League who also have the ability to shock the world when need be.

Mid-week road wins are hard to come by in the W-League, especially with work-conflicts and family issues preventing players from travelling.  This will be a very interesting week indeed.  It is strange finding a Sounder rooting for the Colorado Force, Pali Blues, and Santa Clarita Blue Heat all in one week.
