Tide squash Spiders 5-0
It was over after the first goal, a nice strike by Chase Tangney.
More followed, though, and Tacoma Tide FC ran their home unbeaten streak to 13 matches over two years with a 5-0 pounding of the Spokane Spiders Saturday afternoon, May 31st. TFC have now outscored their opponents 15-1 at Curtis High School in 4 home games this season.

Spencer Schomaker (45th minute), Rory Agu (63rd), Steve Mohn (84th) and Cam Vickers (90th) were the other Tide goal scorers.
Raphael Cox assisted on the last two scores.
The Spiders had played to a 1:1 draw the night before in Salem. TFC had moved this match to a 2:05 start time so that players, coaches and fans could head north to Seattle to watch the Brazil-Canada match later that night.
The Tide are now 3-2-1 on the season with 10 standings points. They sit in second place behind Yakima (16 points) and one point ahead of the Vancouver Whitecaps PDL squad. The Whitecaps are a perfect 3-0 and have nine points.
The Tide host the Whitecaps next Saturday night at 7:00 PM. The night before that Tacoma hosts Abottsford Mariners at 7:00 PM (June 6).
