Pirates continue unbeaten streak

The Peninsula Pirates Community College soccer team (Port Angeles) continued their unbeaten streak to 4 games with a tie today against Whatcom (1st in North Division). The game was played in a rain/wind storm with both teams ending the game with 2 goals each. Whatcom scored first in the 15 minute off a nice cross for a header on the backside. The Pirates scored next 36 minutes into the game off a John Troka Penalty Kick, created after John Troka was fouled in the box. Whatcom was able to utilize the foul weather to put a 20 yard free kick into the back of the net, only after a bad deflection redirected past Pirate GK Jase Hall. Ernest Boham ties the game in the 68 minute from a Troka corner kick with a great blast 20 yards out. And that is how the game ended. The Pirates had 6 shots with Whatcom having 4 shots and Jase Hall for the Pirates with only 1 save. “Under the weather conditions and the fact we were on the road again we played really well. We controlled most of the game”. Next game will be home vs. Highline on Wed. Oct. 8th at 4pm (Highline is tied for 1st in the West Division).

Ernest Boham breaks ALL TIME SCORING RECORD. With Ernest’s 4 goal of the season and 17 of his career he passed up Seth Ransom for most goals in a 2 year career at Peninsula College. We are now at our half way point in the season and I am confident he will be able to add to it. He has been shooting for this record for a long time and it is great that he finally reached it. Especially with the goal he had today, a fantastic hit ball from 20 yards out.
