Warriors win two at NWAC Friendlies

TUKWILA, Wash. — Caitlin Crist scored twice, goalie Josey Gunter denied all three Edmonds shots on goal, and the Walla Walla Community College women collected their second straight win to open this soccer season with a 2-0 victory here on Friday at the Starfire Sports Complex in Northwest Athletic Conference Friendlies.


Jade Higley fed Crist for her first goal in the 40th minute, and three minutes later, the Warriors doubled their lead shortly before halftime off an assist from Taylen Wohl.


The Warriors (2-0 record) would continue harassing the Edmonds net all day, finishing with 18 shots on goal — six times as many as the Tritons.


WWCC had already opened its season with a 4-1 victory over Portland here on Thursday.


Jessica Maher netted two goals for WWCC as the Warriors erased an early deficit to begin the season with a 4-1 victory over Portland.


Portland jumped ahead with its lone goal about six minutes in, but WWCC wasted little time coming back as Emmy Williams fed Maher for her first goal to tie things up only five minutes later.


Still even at halftime, Williams helped put WWCC on top for good with an assist on Aubree Skone’s goal at the 48th minute.


WWCC began to pull away less than 10 minutes later as Maher score unassisted, and Taylen Wohl found the back of the net for more insurance at 76.


Warrior goalie Josey Gunter shrugged off the early Portland tally, finishing with seven saves.


The Warriors next will host weekend action with Pierce this coming Friday, starting at noon, and then Rogue on Saturday.
