Men’s Soccer Split Week’s Matches
Bellevue College’s men’s soccer team played two matches in the past week; against Highline Community College on October 20th and Olympic College on October 23rd. The Bulldogs enjoyed the luxury of playing at home after traveling the past two matches. However, the team only came away with one victory.
In their first match against Highline, the Bulldogs found themselves digging out of a hole early on. The Thunderbirds scored early (10’) and the score remained 1-0 for much of the game. From Head Coach Sasha Shefts’ vantage, the team “unfortunately did not play together well.” Highline added another goal towards the end (87’) and Bellevue’s Sean Keegan responded right away with a goal of his own (88’). That was as close as the Bulldogs would get as the game ended in a 2-1 loss for Bellevue. Prior to the loss, Bellevue was coming off six straight wins dating back to September 18th .
The Bulldogs’ losing streak did not last long as they bounced right back three days later against Olympic. Similar to recent wins, Bellevue scored early within the first ten minutes as Race Sciabica got things going at minute 9. Captain Josh Strasser scored again in the 41st minute giving the Bulldogs a 2-1 halftime lead.
In the second half, RJ Sorenson (64’) and Luiggi Montero (83’) scored to cap off the Bulldogs’ offense in the game to seal a 4-2 win.
“The team played much better together this time around, said Shefts.”
With the week’s matches completed, Bellevue is in second place in the West Region of the NWAACC with a 7-3-0 record in league play. Bellevue’s next match is at Tacoma Community College on Wednesday October 27th.
