The weekend wrap

Good Monday morning. Our athletes of the week on deck, but first, here’s a weekend wrap, with a rundown of all the college action involving locals from yesterday. It’s all from soccer, as well, as Valley athletes and teams played in six different contests around the country, from New Jersey all the way to Seattle.

Western Washington women 1, Metro State (Denver) 0: The Vikings moved to 3-0 on the fall with their road win over the Denver team in the Mile High City. Junior forward Karli White, she of North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, started for Western and played 62 minutes, recording three shots, two on goal, with no goals scored for the Vikings.

Corban 4, Linfield men 0: The NAIA’s Warriors used a hat trick from Rolando Velazquez to score the road win over the NCAA’s Wildcats in McMinnville, OR. Senior Austin Bebee, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS alum, started for Linfield and worked the full 90 minutes of action, with no stats of note reported.

College of Idaho 2, Linfield women 0: The Wildcats were blanked at home in McMinnville, OR, by the visiting Coyotes, from Idaho and an NAIA member. Sophomore Sydney Kuehn, from Duvall and a 2016 Cedarcrest HS grad, started for Linfield and logged 68 minutes of action, with one shot recorded; the shot was not on goal and she scored no goals in the contest for the Wildcats.

Drew (NJ) 3, Whitman men 2: The hosts from New Jersey broke a 2-2 halftime tie with the lone second-half goal to sink the visiting Blues. Sophomore Jimmy Jacobson, from North Bend and a 2016 Mount Si HS alum, came off the bench and played 48 minutes of the contest for Whitman, recording one shot, which reached goal, but he did not score any goals in the match for the Blues.

Carroll-MT 1, Whitworth women 0: Carroll scored the game’s lone goal in the first half then held on for the road win over the Pirates in Spokane. Senior Leah Corra and junior Mackenzie Popp, both of Ames Lake and both Mount Si High School grads, played in the contest for Whitworth; Corra started at forward and logged 48 minutes, while Popp came off the bench and started the second half, logging a total of 16 minutes. Neither player recorded any stats of note for the Pirates.

Cal State Stanislaus 2, Central Washington women 1: In Seattle on neutral soil thanks to poor air quality at Central’s campus in Ellensburg, the visitors from the central part of California held off a strong challenge from the Wildcats to move to 5-0 on the season. Central drops to 1-3, and junior Michaela “KK” Wallace saw action for the Wildcats in the contest; the 2015 MSHS alum from North Bend started and worked 56 minutes of the contest up front, logging one shot that did not reach goal; she did not score any goals in the contest.
