Drawn out -- Pumas tie yet again
The Kitsap Pumas (1-2-5) are inching their way up the standings, literally one point at a time.
Kitsap has made a habit this season of finishing even with their opponents in nearly every game. More than half of their points have come in draws.
On Saturday, the team played at home against the Portland Timbers U23 (5-1-2) for the second time in two weeks.
The Pumas went up 2-0 on a pair of goals by midfielder Neil Shaffer.
Shaffer scored in the 14th minute and put a penalty shot into the net early in the second half.
They were unable to hold onto their lead for more than a few minutes, however, as the Timbers shot back with two goals of their own in a short five minute span to level the game to its eventual final score of 2-2.
