Megan Young scored in the 86th minute to lead the Columbia
Basin College women’s soccer team to a 1-0 win over Treasure Valley in
NWAACC East play Wednesday in Pasco.
Young (Kennewick) followed up a shot from Ruby Herrera (Sunnyside) that was deflected by the Chukars keeper.
ball came from the outside to (Herrera), and she took the shot,” CBC
coach Matt Mills said. “The keeper parried it off to the side, and Megan
followed in off the initial shot and was able to slit it back across
the keeper to the far post.”
It was the culmination of a fluid
game for the Hawks, with Mills praising the team’s passing combinations
that added up to 12 shots on frame. He said a big difference has been
moving Herrera and Yesenia Alvarado (Richland) up front, and they have
been generating more shots.
“It was pretty evenly matched back and
forth,” he said. “We were just a little bit fitter, got in a little
more and made our chances count.”
Mills called it a huge win for
CBC (5-4-2, 3-4-2 East) in securing the third and final postseason
berth. While Walla Walla and Spokane are running away from the pack, the
Hawks are solidly ahead of the valleys — Treasure, Yakima and Wenatchee
— which have just one regional win between them.
CBC plays at Wenatchee on Saturday.
