The Bellevue women’s soccer team narrowly lost out on a penalties to Shoreline in the opening round of the NWAC playoffs on Tuesday October 3.

The game was tied 1-1 after 90 minutes. Shoreline took the lead, but Anna Roslander equalized for Bellevue with her 16th goal of the season. Bellevue finished the game strong and gave it everything as they searched for the winning goal, creating multiple chances in extra time, but they just couldn’t get over the line. The game finished 1-1 and was decided on penalty kicks, with Shoreline winning 5-3.

Despite the loss, the 2015 season was one of the most successful in recent years with the women finishing as co-champions for the West Region and losing only one competitive game with a league record of 11-1-0 and overall season record of 13-2-2. The league season record and placing was the best Bellevue has achieved since 2010. In the process the team put together a winning streak of 10 straight wins, and recorded a total of nine shutouts.

Coach Dan Lock said “I’m very proud of all the players for their hard work and success this season. The sophomores built on the foundation they set in 2014 and all of them improved, while the incoming freshmen instantly gelled with the existing players and enhanced the level of the team. We have a solid core of players for 2016 and we’re already looking forward to the spring season and starting to plan for the 2016 season. The players have been a joy to coach and work with, and despite the narrow playoff loss, they should all be proud of their record, how they have played this season and how they have represented Bellevue College.”
