The Shadow lead South Sound by one point. Both clubs play final matches today. Spokane is host to Wenatchee at 5 p.m. at SFCC.

The Shadow took advantage with Mike Ramos and Adam Talley each scoring three goals, Timmy Mueller two, and Micah Weller, Juan Valderrama and Graison Le one each.
Israel Alvarez, 14, representing Spokane’s Howard Street Boxing Club, fought his way to the 132-pound finals in the 13-14 division at the National Junior Golden Gloves tournament in Mesquite, Nevada, before losing a 3-0 decision to Harley Mederos of New York.
Alvarez had won a pair of 3-0 decisions at the tournament to reach the finals.
