Pirates return to winning ways

Pirates return to winning ways

Sequim Gazette staff

Winless in their past three games, Peninsula's Pirates weren't about to let this division game slip away.

Brent Ricigliano took a pass from Jeff Mullen for a score with just seven minutes remaining in the second half to break a tie, giving Peninsula a 2-1 win at Tacoma on Oct. 23.

The win keeps No. 1-ranked Peninsula (7-2-1 in conference play, 9-2-3 overall) in first place in the NWAACC West, one point ahead of Bellevue.

After a scoreless first half, Mullen found Miguel Gonzalez for a goal at the 70-minute mark and 1-0 lead, but Tacoma's Sean Foss tied the game 10 minutes later.

Ricigliano knocked home the game-winner three minutes after that.

The Pirates host Highline on Oct. 27 and Olympic on Oct. 30.
