Women’s Soccer Plays Two Titans; Home and Away
The Bellevue College women’s soccer team played two matches this past week against the Tacoma Community College Titans at home and traveling to Eugene, OR to face off against the Titans of Lane Community College.
In the first match at home on October 6th, the Bulldogs came out aggressively and it paid off as Jaime Lindstrom scored in the 6th minute. Throughout the course of the match, it was “a very physical game with big-time hits” said Coach Sasha Shefts. He was also pleased the team came out with a fast start, keeping the momentum in Bellevue’s favor.
Jessie Oliver scored a goal in the 15th minute as she seemingly has in every match the Bulldogs have played. Kayla Kasper added to the lead before halftime with a goal at 28 minutes. At game’s end, the Bulldogs finished off a 4-0 victory to put the Titans away.
On October 9th, Bellevue traveled to Eugene to take on Lane. The Bulldogs were shorthanded as they traveled with only 13 players for the match.
For most of the game, Bellevue trailed Lane albeit a slim margin of 1-0 due to a Lane goal in the 35th minute. The Bulldogs were able to tie the game in the 85th minute with Brittney Conway’s goal. Said Shefts of the goal; “it was willed in more than anything.” “It was an emotionally charged game and it created a bonding experience for the girls.” The match ended in a 1-1 tie.
At the conclusion of the week, the Bulldogs have a 5-1-1 record, good for first place in the west division of the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC). Their next two matches are at Green River Community College and Peninsula College on October 13th and 16th. A new coach’s poll will be released on October 13th.
