On Saturday Oct. 8, the seventh-ranked Bulldogs traveled south to take on Tacoma. Bellevue was able to take the early lead again scoring in the 15th minute, this time from midfielder Do-Hee Kim. Just five minutes later, Hale scored his team leading sixth goal, putting the Bulldogs ahead 2-0. After the half, Tacoma took control. In the 55th minute, Scott Hanson got the Titans on the board making it 2-1. Then in the 80th minute, Angelo Plattner capitalized on a score assisted by Wyatt Plattner knotting up the score at 2-2. Two minutes later, Plattner again scored a goal assisted by Hanson to go ahead 3-2 which ended as the final score.
