The Spokane Shadow posted their first Evergreen Premier League victory Saturday night, earning a 3-0 victory on the road in Bremerton, Wash. against WestSound FC at Silverdale Stadium. Adam Talley, Elliot Fauske and Mike Ramos provided the goals.

In a dominant performance on the night, the first goal would not come until a turnover in the 34th minute for the Shadow, who outshot WestSound 9-4 in the first half. After gaining possession on the turnover, Nick Hamer delivered a quick through ball on the left side of box, finding Adam Talley for the lone goal of the period.

Elliot Fauske doubled the lead in the 66th. Lurking at the left post, he buried one from close range as the ball from Mike Ramos on the right side found its way through the area to the far post for the finish.

Seven minutes later Mike Ramos received the ball from Sam Engle about 30 yards out and made a quick move to lose a defender. He drove in and put the shot to goalkeeper Jordan Hadden's left from the top of box.

With his performance, Ramos doubled his tally for the season to two goals and two assists in three games.

Shadow goalkeeper Cody Lang was largely untested on the night, needing to make only one save out of the host's seven shots. The Shadow finished with 14 shots with Hadden making six saves in WestSound's loss.

The Spokane Shadow finish the weekend double-header in Tacoma Sunday at 2:00 against South Sound FC at Harry Lang Stadium.
