Women edge Wenatchee, 2-1

The Warriors of the Walla Walla Community College women’s soccer team was able to string out a 2-1 victory over the visiting Wenatchee valley Knights.


The Warriors created a lot of good chances early but were unable to convert on them.


Wenatchee was able to capitalize on a penalty kick in the 26th minute which put them up 1-0 over Walla Walla.


The rest of the first half was stagnant with Walla Walla able to get some chances but did not trouble the Wenatchee goalkeeper.


A different story in the second half for the Warriors as they got off 11 total shots in the period.


The energy picked up for Walla Walla as they were able to create some good opportunities and were able to come down and score as Estefania Cossio came down the left wing to find Haley Wammock for the goal to tie up the game at 1-1.


Walla Walla mounted more pressure on Wenatchee and at the 74th minute Haley Hill recived a pass from Madison Brownell and was able to bend the ball up and over the Wenatchee goalkeeper from 18 yards out to put the Warriors up 2-1.


The Warriors were able to hold Wenatchee to only three shots in the second half as they held on to the victory at the end.


“We battled through some adversity today and came together as a team to win a tough match,” Warriors coach Jordan Hacker said. “Haley Wammock stepped up big for us today. She got us on the board first and helped spark the comback to get us two points.


“Our back line had a solid game today,” he continued. “I think the entire group is coming together and starting to find our groove after a very adverse week.”


Like the men’s team, the women are on the road at Treasure valley for their next match on Tuesday and it starts at 11:00 a.m. and then return home to face Blue Mountain on Saturday at 12:00 p.m.
