SASQUATCH TOO MUCH FOR BULLDOGS; BC WOMEN LOSE 4-1
It was a tale of two halves for Bellevue College women’s soccer team on Saturday, Oct. 13, as they took on the East Region #1 team, the Spokane Sasquatch. The opening 15 minutes were showcased by Spokane’s offensive threat, but initially kept at bay by strong goalkeeping by Bellevue freshman Sophie Rockow who ended the match with a total of six saves. The Bulldogs settled into their own rhythm and found the back of the net first with a stunning right-footed shot by freshman Tatum Ross, on an assist from Isabella Stribling. It was the eighth goal of the season for Ross. Bellevue ended the half with the lead 1-0.
The second half, however, was a different story. The Sasquatch flew onto the field and wasted no time putting up three goals on the Bulldogs in the first 16 minutes to take a 3-1 lead. In the 62nd minute, Spokane found the net one last time from a corner and wrapped up the match 4-1. “Unfortunately for Bellevue, this was a great example of how important it is to stay focused throughout the entire match,” said assistant coach Kiko Magana. “We began the second half flat and conceded three goals. We played good enough in the first half to take the lead but Spokane created more opportunities in the second half and capitalized on them.” The loss takes Bellevue to 6-2-1 in the league, 8-3-1 overall.
Bellevue College women will host powerhouse rival Peninsula College (9-1-0, 14-1-0) on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at Starfire Sports Complex with a kick-off time of 1:00 p.m.
