Bellevue Men’s Soccer Rested For Peninsula
The Bellevue College men’s soccer team played against Peninsula College on Saturday October 16th. Being the only match of the week, they got a chance to rest up.
In the opening minutes, Race Sciabica got things going for the Bulldogs with a goal in the 7th minute, assisted by Esteban Reyes. However, things would remain tight until halftime as the score at that point was only 1-1.
Bellevue and Peninsula again traded goals after halftime and the match remained tied late in the half. Captain Josh Guerrero’s goal at minute 55 gave Bellevue the edge but Peninsula responded at minute 62. This set up what turned out to be the game-winning goal from Bellevue’s Josh Strasser scored the final goal of the match at minute 78; thus providing a 3-2 victory for the Bulldogs.
With this win, Bellevue is now tied for first place with Peninsula coincidentally, in the West Region with a league record of 6-2-0. A new NWAACC Coaches’ Poll was released during the week with Bellevue ranked 5th.
