PC Pirates move to top of polls

The Peninsula College women’s and men’s soccer teams emerged No. 1 in their respective Northwest Athletic Conference soccer polls, the conference annunced on Sept. 30.

The Pirate women, 7-0-1 on the season coming into last weekend, led the women’s voting in the first NWAC TicketSmarter poll of the season, just ahead of Highline (6-0-1). Clark was third, followed by Columbia Basin, Spokane, North Idaho, Lower Columbia and Skagit Valley.

In the men’s poll, three North Division teams were in the top eight, led by the Pirates at No. 1 with an 8-0 record, and Whatcom No. 2, also at 8-0. Columbia Basin is third, Rogue fourth, Chemeketa and Tacoma are tied for fifth, North Idaho is seventh and Skagit Valley — the third North team in the poll — is eighth.

Pirates earn win, draw

The top Peninsula College men’s soccer team remained unbeaten and the PC women tied in two low-scoring road games at Skagit Valley on Oct. 2.

The men won 1-0, getting their lone goal in the 60th minute, while the women, though dominating with the number of shots on goal, tied the Cardinals 0-0.

The men, 9-0-0 on the season, got their goal in the 60th minute off a corner kick. The corner kick was headed 20 feet in the air and out of the penalty box by a Cardinals defender. Jeong Hyun Kang hit a powerful one-time shot before the ball hit the ground from 20 yards out to score.

The women had a frustrating game against the second-place Cardinals. The women had 19 shots and 10 on goal, but couldn’t break through for a score. Skagit Valley had just three shots and one on goal.
