|Bellevue Women's Soccer Splits Pair|
October 4, 2010
Bellevue College women’s soccer played in two matches last week against Olympic College on Sept. 29 and Clackamas CC on October 2nd . In the first match taking place in Bremerton, WA, the Bulldogs played tentative against a very strong Olympic squad according to Coach Sasha Shefts. Jessie Oliver and Deirdre Dornay both scored goals in the first half for BC at 12’ and 40’ respectively. The Bulldogs entered half-time with a 2-1 lead as they looked to make adjustments against the Rangers; even with the lead. In the second half, “the girls came out more relaxed and played a better style to beat one-on-one match ups” said Shefts. This was evident as the Bulldogs proceeded to add four goals and take the match 6-2. Jaime Lindstrom scored two goals, Oliver added another, and Tina Jacobsen scored the last goal for BC in the 70th minute. By game’s end, Shefts gave praise to the team’s forwards acknowledging them for their strong offensive output.
In the second match of the week, the Bulldogs did not fare as well hosting Clackamas at home on Saturday October 2nd . At the time, Clackamas was ranked 2nd in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community College (NWAACC) Horizon Air Coaches’ Poll. The team “played hard but came away frustrated against a great opponent,” said Shefts. Bellevue College trailed the entire game, 3-0 at half-time, eventually falling 3-1. The only offensive output for the Bulldogs came from Oliver in the 40th minute. The Bulldogs’ women’s soccer team currently holds a record of 4-1-0 in league play. The team has scored 31 goals and allowed only 13 while registering two shutouts in the process. The Bulldogs are ranked second overall in the NWAACC Coaches’ Poll. A new poll will be released on Wednesday, October 13th.
