Team Held to a Point in Weekend Losses

September 26 2009

LA GRANDE, Ore - Evergreen fell victim to a shutout by the Yotes in their first CCC game on Friday and then came out on the losing end in a hard fought match with Eastern Oregon today. Evergreen's CCC record stands at 0-2 with an overall record of 1-3-4.

In Caldwell, a pair of goals less than ten minutes into the match jump-started The College of Idaho women's soccer team, as the Lady Yotes registered a resounding 5-0 victory over Evergreen  in the Cascade Conference opener for both teams at Simplot Stadium.

With the win, the Lady Yotes (6-1, 1-0 CCC) secured their best start in the 21-year history of the program and picked up a victory in their debut on their new home pitch.

Erika Mouritsen got the ball rolling just five minutes into the match, knocking home a Lauren Winterholler corner kick to make it 1-0.  Just three minutes later, Taylor Culver drove a ball past Geoducks (1-2-4, 0-1) keeper Sonya Daisley-Harrison for a two-goal lead.

The Coyotes would put the game away in the second half, as Jessica Ayala converted off a Macy Egerman pass in the 53rd minute to make it a three-goal cushion.  The C of I would add two goals in the 86th minute - one by Colleen Smith, another by Jordan Huttash, to complete the scoring.

Today's match in La Grande saw the Mountaineers get a goal from Kami Hernandez 35 seconds into the match and held that lead for most of the match. Tennly Paul-Bowden added a goal in the 80th minute with an assist from Bailey Richardson.

EOU outshot the Geoducks 9-7 and put two shots past the reigning CCC defensive player of the week Sonja Daisley-Harrison. The Mountaineers' Allison Seymour made two saves in the contest and Daisley-Harrison made five stops.

The Geoducks found the back of the net in the 86th when Marissa Major turned a Nina Hinton pass into a goal.

Evergreen hosts two Cascade Conference teams this weekend. Warner Pacific (0-2 CCC, 0-7-2) on Friday at 4 PM and powerhouse Concordia University (2-0 CCC, 9-1) on Saturday at 3:30 PM.
