WENATCHEE — The Walla Walla Community College women’s soccer team surrendered a goal for the first time this season, but scored twice in the second half to remained undefeated after eight matches with a 2-1 win over Wenatchee Valley in a Northwest Athletic Conference makeup here on Monday.
The game originally had been scheduled for Sept. 9, but hazardous air quality due to smoke from regional wildfires forced the postponement.
Wenatchee’s Karina Guzman became the first player this season to score against Walla Walla (7-0-1 overall, 3-0-0 in the East Region), when she took an assist from teammate Madeline Kaiser to put them ahead around the 18th minute.
The Knights managed to take their 1-0 lead into halftime, but Walla Walla only continued its relentless pursuit. The Warriors outshot Wenatchee, 15-5, and Knights goalie Trisha Priest had to make nine saves.
Walla Walla finally beat Priest about six minutes into the second half, when Chelsea Marozik scored to even things up.
Teammate Haley Wammock followed with the go-head goal about 20 minutes later.
The Warriors are back in action Wednesday at North Idaho. The Cardinals (2-0 in the East) last played on Saturday here in Wenatchee, and picked up a 4-1 win.
