WWCC women on a roll, men split headed to today's soccer matches


SEATTLE - The Walla Walla Community College women's soccer team seeks its third consecutive victory of the young season here today when the Warriors take on Shoreline Community College in a 1 p.m. match.

The two-time defending NWAACC champion Warriors opened the season on a successful note last week at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, defeating Bellevue 5-0 on Thursday and Highline 4-0 on Friday.

Kaylie Winston, a sophomore forward out of Pasco, led Walla Walla offensively in its first two games. Winston scored a hat trick in Friday's win over Highline after booting one of WWCC's five goals on Thursday.

Kathryn Knowlton, a freshman midfielder from Boise's Centennial High, scored a goal in each game for the Warriors.

Meghan Sorensen, Peyton Moon and Heather Krebsbach also scored goals in Thursday's match.

Marie Monasterio and Sami Hansen were credited with assists on Thursday and Moon collected an assist Friday.

The WWCC men, meanwhile, will also meet Shoreline here today at 3 p.m. after splitting a pair of matches last week in Tukwila.

The Warriors defeated Tacoma 2-1 on Thursday and lost to Bellevue 3-0 on Friday.

Mikey Luhrs, a sophomore midfielder from Meridian, Idaho, and Jonathan Rodriguez, a freshman midfielder from Connell, scored the Warrior goals in the victory over Tacoma.

The WWCC soccer teams will be in action west of the Cascades again Tuesday when they travel to Everett.

The men's match is scheduled for 1 p.m. followed by the women's match at 3.

The Warriors make their home debuts on Saturday. The women host Lane at noon and the men greet South Puget Sound at 2:15 p.m.
