Midseason Mark Passes, Geoducks Lose at Home

Men win twice on the road but fall at home while the Women lose heartbreaking double overtime match

After two solid wins by the Second-Place Men’s Soccer team over Northwest Christian and College of Idaho, the Geoducks struggled against Concordia for the second time this season. Concordia, the only team with a better conference record than the Geoducks, defeated Evergreen 1-4 amidst rain, wind, and sloppy field conditions.

Jeremy Novack scored the lone goal for Evergreen off a corner kick from Jeff Roland. The team looks to bounce back against Northwest Christian in Eugene, Oregon on Wednesday. Evergreen’s goals during the Northwest Christian and College of Idaho matches were scored by Ethan Sumlin, Roland, and Willie Spurr.

This month the Evergreen Women’s Soccer team showed signs of improvement. They struggled mightily against Corban and Northwest University, scoring one goal during those two games, with Haley Lightfoot finding the back of the net against Corban. However, against Northwest Christian the Lady Geoducks showed incredible spirit.

They came back from a 2-0 deficit thanks to second half goals by Lightfoot at the 69th minute off an assist from Katie Mendoza, and Sophie Krauza via a header assisted by Kori Lerch at the 74th minute. With the game tied after the first ’90, the teams played through two overtimes before Northwest Christian won on a break at the ‘103 minute.
