Familiar soccer outcome for Whitman women on Sunday


TACOMA - After losing 1-0 Saturday at Puget Sound, the Whitman College women's soccer team suffered the same fate at the feet of Pacific Lutheran here Sunday.

Whitman outshot the Lutes 15-6 on the day, including a 12-4 edge in shots on goal, but Pacific Lutheran rang up the lone goal on its only corner kick of the afternoon.

Kristina Snaring took the corner late in the 13th minute of the first half. The ball sailed over a group of players in front of the goal and found Jordan Daniels at the far post. Daniels put a knee into the ball, punching it into the net.

Whitman, which beat Pacific Lutheran 3-2 last month in Walla Walla, saw its record fall to 3-8 in the NWC and 5-9 on the season. The Lutes are 3-6-1 and 3-9-1.

Junior Amy Hasson played all 90 minutes in the Whitman midfield, getting off six shots, four of which were on frame. Both numbers were game highs.

Kelsey Roehner, a first-year Missionary, came off the bench to put two of her three shots on goal.

Six more Missionaries - Hallie Swan, MacKenzie Hughes, Marisa Poorboy, Taylor Chock and Julianne Masser - also put shots on goal.

Lauren Chambrand made 10 saves for the Lutes to keep Whitman off the scoreboard. Pacific Lutheran's defense also notched two team saves.

Whitman, which has played seven of its first 11 NWC games on the road, now hosts four of its last five games.

The Missionaries welcome Pacific and George Fox to the Whitman Athletic Fields next Saturday and Sunday for games at noon.
