PORT ANGELES – The Peninsula College women and men rolled through the first of three rounds of North Division soccer play with unbeaten records, following a pair of shutouts over Edmonds at Sigmar Field Saturday.
Remarkably the Pirate women won all five matches without surrendering a goal. Peninsula (5-0, 6-1-1) racked up 25 goals and allowed none, despite playing everyone on the roster, including four goal keepers. The Pirates are ranked No. 3 in the Northwest Athletic Conference and No. 19 in the nation.
The Pirate men (5-0, 7-0-1) have scored 20 goals and given up seven, but they tightened up the defense last week, recording back-to-back shutouts against sixth-ranked Whatcom and seventh-ranked Edmonds. The PC men are ranked No. 1 in the NWAC poll and remain unranked nationally.
The Peninsula women and men tackle arguably their toughest North Division opponent on Wednesday when Shoreline visits the PC campus for a pair of matches at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the second of a five-game home stand. Back on Sept. 10 at Shoreline, the Pirate women escaped with a 1-0 win over the Dolphins and the men rallied from behind to win 4-3.
BELLINGHAM - The Peninsula Pirates were braced for a showdown at Whatcom Wednesday where the the two women's teams and the two men's teams all had 3-0 conference records on the line.
When the crumb rubber had settled on the Orcas' turf field late Wednesday afternoon, it was the Pirate women and men who were all alone in first place in the North Division.
The Northwest Athletic Conference's third-ranked Peninsula women stunned unranked Whatcom 7-0 in the opener, and the top-ranked Pirate men followed with a 3-0 shutout over the hosts, who are ranked sixth in the NWAC.
The Pirate women improved to 4-0 in North Division play and 5-1-1 overall, while the men remained unbeaten, improving to 4-0 and 6-0-1. Peninsula hosts Edmonds Saturday for the annual "Community Day" match. Admission is free to all fans and mini soccer balls will be given away. Kickoff is noon for the women's match and 2 p.m. for the men.
