Shine win crucial WPSL match
Lisa Robertson scored directly off a corner kick to give the Spokane Shine a 1-0 victory over Emerald City of Seattle at Albi Stadium on Friday night. The win brought the team one step closer to a Women’s Professional Soccer League playoff berth.
The Shine are one point behind Northwest Division leader Issaquah. Each has one match left with one playoff berth on the line. The Shine play their final regular-season match against the winless Oregon Rush of Bend at 2 p.m. today at Albi.
Robertson curled the ball in toward the far post with her left foot.
