WOMEN'S SOCCER: NIC loses one and wins one

09/03/2017

It was a Labor Day weekend treat for the NIC Cardinals to get two home games, but it wasn't all good for the home team. NIC faced the Tacoma Titans on Friday and lost 1-4. The first for the Titans came early in the match as Issabelle Creighton hit a swerving shot from just outside the penalty area getting past NIC keeper, Kinzie Hunter. Hunter later came out as a ball was played through to Creighton and made the stop amidst a a collision with the Titan forward and fellow Cardinals Ashley Creighton. NIC evened the score with 7 minutes left in the 1st half as Linnea Pretzer dropped the ball off for Chelsea Love who hit a nice low shot into the left side of the net.

The second half was all Tacoma. Hitting 3 shots of the Kari Bromley the Cardinals' goal keeper in the second half. "We have to do a better job putting pressure on opponents when they get within shooting distance," commented Head Coach Dan Hogan.

The second game of the weekend went much better as the Cardinals defeated Everett CC 9-1. Marisol Guerrero and Pretzer scored hat tricks. Zoe Lee didn't score, but created two of the goals, one by crossing the ball in front of the goal which was deflected into the net by a retreating Trojan defender and the second time resulted in Guerrero's first goal as Lee hit a hard shot the Everett keeper could only deflect allowing Guerrero to put the ball in the open net. Chelsea Love also tallied 2 goals to bring her season total up to 4. Ellory Ferris a freshman midfielder from Ellensburg, Wash. assisted on one of Pretzer's goals and one of Love's goals in her best performance so far this season. Jewelia Meischke got a late goal in the 89th minute as NIC's defense relaxed allowing her an open opportunity from 25 yards.

The Cardinals are now 2-2 and will start league play next week as they travel to Blue Mountain CC and Treasure Valley CC on Friday, 9/8 and Saturday, 9/9.
