WOMEN’S SOCCER: Schnepf leads women’s soccer back into playoff contention


Two days in a row, Sofia Schnepf found a way to lead the Cardinals to victories over both Treasure Valley Community College on Friday, Oct. 11 and Blue Mountain Community College on Saturday, Oct. 12. Friday’s game against TVCC saw the game remain scoreless in the first half. Shortly into the second half, Schnepf broke away from the defense and finished a ball in the right-hand corner. Not even a minute later, Maya Lewis played a free-kick that found the head of Schnepf to seal the Cardinals victory, 2-0. Kaysha Bailey put together a great performance in the goal.

Saturday’s match-up against Blue Mountain CC was a slow start for the lady Cards. Feeling a little fatigued coming off Friday’s win, the team hasn’t had back-to-back days in a while. With plenty of shots on goal, it took until the 28th minute for the ball to find the back of the net. Sofia Schnepf continued her scoring streak by scoring the first goal for the Cardinals. The score was 1-0 going into half time.

Less than ten minutes after the second half started. Schnepf dribbled past the defense finding freshman Halley Marschall to make a great run from the backline and scoring the second goal of the game. Freshman Hailee Mize played a key role in the goal with two saves in the final minutes for a second shut out of the weekend. With two wins on the weekend, NIC finds themselves two points out of the playoff picture with five games left in the regular season.

The Cardinals will be on the road Wednesday, Oct. 16 looking to avenge an earlier loss against Yakima Valley College. The game is set to start at 2:00 p.m.
