Tritons Win Second Straight

box score

WHATCOM – The EdCC Tritons snapped a 3-game skid last week with a win at Green River.  The squad followed that with a 1-0 triumph at Whatcom CC on Wednesday for two in a row.

First things first, with the 1-0 victory at Whatcom Edmonds CC improved to 8-4-1 overall, 6-4-1 in league play, good for third in the NWAC North standings. EdCC currently holds a 6-point lead over fourth-place Whatcom (4-8-1, 4-6-1).

The midway point to North play is on Saturday and it’s important that the Tritons at least maintain their positioning in the standings as only the top three teams from each region advance to the NWAC playoffs.

Earning her second shutout in as many games Wednesday was EdCC keeper Alecia Longsine who saved eight Whatcom shots on goal.

Even with a steady defense and nearly double-digit saves, the match looked like it was going to result in a 0-0 draw until the 84th minute when a Triton shot was saved by but bounced off Orca keeper Megan O’Keefe. Edmonds forward Claudia Brasino was at the right place at the right time and chipped in the deflection for the game’s lone goal from about eight yards out.

O’Keefe would register four saves in the loss. 

Edmonds returns to Triton Field on Saturday after five straight games on the road. EdCC will host Skagit Valley starting at noon.
