Sports Filled Weekend
Get ready to have a weekend full of adrenalin, games, and good times! This weekend will be packed full of soccer, football, and hockey.
You might need a week of vacation afterwards to recover from all the excitement that will hit the Seattle area.
Sounders FC will face a rivalry bout with the Portland Timbers in the Western Conference Semifinals beginning Saturday at CenturyLink Field.
The two teams have split three regular-season games this year, each winning one and one ending in a tie. The big game will begin at 7pm.
Also on Saturday, The Everett Silvertips have once again partnered with Providence Regional Medical Center and the Safeway Foundation to ‘Pink the Rink 2013’.
According to My Everett News, the fifth annual Pink the Rink game will have the Silvertips hosting rival Seattle Thunderbirds at Comcast Arena. The event has raised more than $225,000 for the local fight against breast cancer over the past four seasons. The puck hits the ice at 7:05pm.
Don’t forget about the Seahawks on Sunday! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will make their way to CenturyLink Field on November 3, and fans are encouraged to bring nonperishable food or cash donations for Northwest Harvest.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. Touchdown City will open at 10 a.m. and stadium gates open at 11 a.m. As a reminder, daylight saving time ends on Sunday at 2 a.m. so set those clocks back to avoid missing any game action.
