PASCO — Alli Madril’s goal in the 70th minute provided the difference as NWAACC East Division-leading Walla Walla Community College completed a regular-season, home-and-home sweep of Columbia Basin with a 1-0 victory over the Hawks in a women’s collegiate soccer match here Saturday afternoon.
The Warriors, ranked No. 3 in the latest NWAACC poll, improved to 10-1-1 in the division and 14-1-1 overall. WWCC leads second-place Spokane by one point in the East standings (31-30).
Walla Walla peppered the CBC goal, forcing Hawks’ goalie Dakota Wickard to make 17 saves.
“We made it tough on ourselves by not finishing, but I’m proud of the girls for getting three points,” WWCC coach Chad Bodnar said. “We found a way to win. It’s always tough at their place.”
CBC, outshot 42-3, packed much of its squad in around its own goal throughout much of the afternoon to keep the match close, Bodnar said.
“A lot of teams are doing that against us,” Bodnar said. “We’re learning to deal with it.”
The Warriors host Treasure Valley Wednesday at 2 p.m.
