WWCC men, women shut out Hawks


PASCO - Walla Walla Community College's women's soccer team shut out Columbia Basin, 2-0, here Wednesday, while the men handed the Hawks a 1-0 defeat.

For the women, Warrior goalkeeper Courtney Hancock had two saves.

Sami Hansen scored WWCC's first goal five minutes in off an assist from Shae Yuma, and followed with an unassisted insurance goal in the 82nd minute.

On the first goal, Yuma took the ball from the CBC right back and crossed the ball to Hansen, who finished off the goal.

On the second score, Hansen volleyed the ball over the CBC goalkeeper for the goal.

"The women did not play their best game today, but got the result on the road," Warrior coach Chad Bodnar said. "We had the run of play, but struggled finding the final ball. We will look to get better this weekend against Treasure Valley at home on Saturday."

For the WWCC men, Emmanuel Martinez had six saves in goals to preserve the shutout.

Mikey Luhrs scored the Warriors' lone goal two minutes in off an assist from Kentaro Bodzewski. Bodzewski won possession in the midfield and passed to Luhrs, who put the ball into the goal on the far post.

"We came out strong and focused and scored an early goal, which always helps," Bodnar said. "But we did not continue to play the way we can. Our backline was very strong with Tony Garey, Martin Ramirez, Jesse Macias and Armando Escobedo having very solid games.

"Emmanuel Martinezhad the shutout and made a few very nice saves," he said. "A victory on the road we will take and we have a lot of things to work on as we head further into East Region play."

The WWCC women are now 10-0-1 on the season, and the men 8-1-1. Both Warrior teams host Treasure Valley Saturday, the women at noon and the men at 2 p.m.
