PiosVsBlacktailsTUMWATER, WA – The Tumwater Pioneers indoor soccer team takes to the road Saturday for their second game of the 2012-2013 Premier Arena Soccer League season, traveling to Salem to take on Oregon Blacktails FC at the Salem Soccer Center at 7:30 PM. The Pioneers are coming off a bye week after falling to Kitsap, 11-3, in their opener on December 1st. The Blacktails are 1-1 after a dramatic last minute win in their debut two weeks ago and a 9-6 loss to the South Sound Shock in Tumwater on Saturday night. Both teams are in their first season in the PASL.

Tumwater will be without the services of goalkeeper Matt Stalnik, who will be limited to head coaching duties as an injury scratch from the lineup, and leading scorer Kevin Flavin, who is on break from college and is home visiting his family in Colorado.
