Peninsula College Soccer teams clinched a playoff spot, the hard way. Needing only one point in today’s game to get the final playoff spot, the Pirates came out fired up but were unable to crack the Shoreline defense until the 73rd minute when Hugo Vasquez hit a free kick that went through the box and popped out at Teagan Cambier’s feet who with ease slotted home the game winner.

The Pirates out shot their opponent 17-11 and Alec Risk had 6 saves and the shutout, which is his 5th of the year and the teams 9th. The Pirates will now travel to Skagit Valley on Wednesday for a 3pm game and then will finish out their league play with Whatcom at Home at 2pm Saturday Nov. 8th at 2pm, which will be the last time to see the 2008 Pirates in action at home.

The Pirate soccer team continues its unbeaten streak to 11 games, scoring 30 goals and only giving up 5 in that time. Record is now 10-3-3 in league. The Pirates have not lost at home this season.

Playoff: The Pirates will travel to Clark CC on Nov. 12th for a loser out playoff game, game time to be determined.
