Evergreen 4, Albertson 2

October 19, 2001

Olympia, WA - Evergreen got the big win they needed today to keep them in the hunt for post-season play. The Geoducks (5-9-2, 4-6-1) controlled the tempo of the game from the start. The Evergreen win looms even larger as Albertson (4-8-2, 3-6-2) is one of the teams the Geoducks are fighting for the last playoff spot with.

Evergreen seemed to get the ball to bounce their way all day long, scoring on two long shots from over 30 yards out, and scoring one goal off of a rebound. Evergreen started the scoring off of a goal by Jackie Schlindwein (Anacortes, WA/ Anacortes HS) after Lea Humphries (Anchorage, AK/Chugiak HS) gave her a great lead pass from mid-field. The Geoducks scored about nine minutes later off of a Heather Gordon (Walnut Creek, CA/ Acalanes HS) shot that came from 30 yards out, the goalie got a hand on it, but the ball continued to roll on to the back of the net.

Evergreen continued their attack when Tiffany Fenster (Seattle, WA/ Roosevelt HS) put another deep shot right over the top of the 'Yote goalie. Albertson finally got on the board with about 20 minutes to go in the game, but the Geoducks countered with a goal, by Lori Wieser (Elma, WA/ Pacific Lutheran) only minutes later to seal the victory for Evergreen.

Evergreen's defense also played a key role in the victory, allowing the 'Yotes only eight shots in the game.

Evergreen will be back in action tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. as they host Eastern Oregon University.
