Men’s Soccer Splits Pair, Women 0-2
The Northwest College athletic teams were on the road last weekend, with the Lady Trappers volleyball team in Sheridan for the SC Volleyfall Classic and the soccer teams in Gillette for the K2 Technologies Tournament.
In Sheridan, the Lady Trapper volleyball squad posted a 3-0 record. That included a five-set thriller over host Sheridan College, dropping the first two sets before storming back to win three straight (22-25, 18-25, 25-23, 25- 18, 15-10). NWC also posted wins over the Montana contingent of Dawson Community College (25- 11, 25-19, 25-13) and Miles CC (26-24, 25-19, 25-18).
Down the road in Gillette, the NWC women’s soccer team went 0-2, though both games were competitive. NWC opened the K2 Technologies Tournament Saturday with a 3-0 loss to Western Nebraska CC, following up on Sunday with a 2-1 heartbreaker against Northeastern Junior College. Brandi Beddes scored the first goal of the season for the Lady Trappers against NJC.
The NWC men’s soccer team fared better, dropping their first game of the tournament 3-2 before rebounding in a big way, routing Colorado Northwestern CC 7-0. Trappers sophomore Sergio Garcia Santamarina had the hot foot for NWC, scoring a goal against Gillette and recording a hat trick against CNCC. Trapper Gage Magone scored twice in the 7-0 shutout, while Matheus Macedo had goals against Gillette and CNCC. Edgar Meza and Rennan DaSilva added a goal each against CNCC. Keeper Marcus Olmos recorded the shutout.
The soccer teams will play their home openers Saturday against Sheridan College at Trapper Field. The women are scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m., with the men’s game at 1 p.m.
The NWC volleyball team is in Twin Falls, Idaho, this weekend for the Starr Invitational at the College of Southern Idaho.
