OLYMPIA, WA – The Artesians came off a 4-week break from Western Indoor Soccer League competition with a resounding 17-6 victory over the Portland Blacktails in front of a packed crowd at the Evergreen State College Saturday night.

Oly Town saw three goals from each Alec Zimmerman and Manny Nicasio as well as a solid showing from keeper Isaiah Damschen to open year 2023 with a WISL win for the Artesians. The first half saw a landslide 8-1 lead by Oly Town and a second half Blacktails resurgence adding 5 goals. But the Artesians would have a whopping six goals in the fourth period alone to close the doors on Portland and pickup their fifth win and moving squarely into second place in the Western Indoor Soccer League table.
