Eastern agrees to 2015 football game with Oregon
College football: Playing against the Pac-12 Conference is becoming commonplace for the Eastern Washington University football program, but the Eagles will face an unfamiliar opponent from that powerhouse league in 2015.
Marking the fifth straight year the Eagles will play a member of the Pac-12, Eastern has reached an agreement to face Oregon in Eugene on Sept. 5, 2015, at Autzen Stadium. It will be the first meeting between the schools.
The Oregon game will mark the fifth straight year the Eagles will play an opponent from the Pac-12 Conference. Eastern played at Washington in 2011 and will play at Washington State this season, at Oregon State in 2013 and at Washington in 2014.
Levesque to hang ’em up
Soccer: Sounders FC forward Roger Levesque announced he will retire following Seattle’s exhibition against European champions Chelsea on Wednesday.
The Sounders announced Levesque’s decision, which was first reported by The Seattle Times. The 31-year-old has played in Seattle since 2003, first with the USL-1 Sounders before signing with the MLS Sounders before Seattle’s inaugural season in 2009. He’s made 53 total appearances for the MLS club, including 18 starts.
Levesque is mostly remembered for his goal just 48 seconds into a U.S. Open Cup match at rival Portland in 2009. Levesque also scored the winning goal in the Open Cup final in 2009 against D.C. United and had two goals, capped by a scuba dive celebration, against New York in 2011.
