Edged out by Walla Walla in the NWAACC standings, Peninsula recaptured the conference's No. 1 position last week — then proved it on the field.
The Pirates blanked Lower Columbia's Red Devils in Longview on Oct. 16, 5-0.
Against the Red Devils, Peninsula got on the scoreboard in the first minute of the match when Alyssa Bertuleit scored off an assist from Fitzsimmons.
Bri Afoa, last season's Player of the Year, added a score one minute later off a Bertuleit assist. Afoa made it 3-0 off a feed from Miranda Sochacki at the 20-minute mark.
