Soggy Soccer Successes
Men's Soccer: Oct. 1

Being soaked by the rain and also losing is just adding insult to injury. The Highline men’s soccer team made sure they did not suffer this double indignity by defeating the Olympic Rangers 5-2 (box) under grey skies and a steady downpour.  Now at 8-1-2 in league play (8-2-3 season), Highline, with 26 points, stands securely in second place in the NWAS West Division and has a chance to take over first place with a victory when it travels to division leader Peninsula on Oct. 22.

The game started off in a surprising manner when Olympic, winless in league play (0-9-1) scored in the first two minutes.  The Thunderbirds quickly regained control with goals by Isidro Prado-Huerta at 5 minutes and Brandon Madsen at 9 minutes.  The half ended with Highline up 2-1, and Alex Lewis increased the lead with a goal at 49 minutes.  Erik Lopez of Olympic scored to cut Highline’s lead to a single goal before Tyler John (69 minutes) and Italo Mota (83 minutes) scored to secure the victory.

Women's Soccer:  (Oct. 17)
To paraphrase English novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, it was a dark and gloomy night as Fall finally kicked Summer out for good, and under an intermittent rain the Highline Women’s team slip-slided past the Olympic Rangers 4-1 (box).  The Thunderbirds, now at 13-1-1 in league and 15-1-1 for the season, look to avenge its only loss of the year in an away game at Peninsula on Oct. 22.

The first half against Olympic saw goals by Dulce Armas (19 minutes) and Paige Surber (29 minutes) and the score could have been a lot more one-sided except for the goalkeeping of Olympic’s Cassady Orstad (13 saves) and a barrage of Highline shots that just missed the Olympic goal. The second half started out placidly enough until Krista Steward of the Rangers scored at 51 minutes, cutting Highline’s lead to 2-1. The goal also served to energize the Thunderbirds, with goals by Jessi Beverlin (59 minutes) and Madison Gale (62 minutes), each assisted by Jaira Brooks, putting the game out of reach.

Women’s Volleyball (Oct. 17-18)

Playing at the Spokane Dig Pink Crossover turned out to be not nearly as fun as the tournament name might imply.  Highline lost all four of its matches, to host Spokane 18-25,25-17,25-19,25-15 (box), Skagit Valley 28-26,25-15 ,11-25,25-11 (box), and twice to Tacoma, 25-13,25-23 ,25-21 (box) and 25-16,25-21 (box).  At 5-2 in league play and 21-7 for the season, the Thunderbirds are in third place in the NWAC West Division, with Tacoma and Clark tied for first place.  Highline gets another crack at Tacoma on Oct. 24 when it travels to take on the Titans, after first traveling to Grays Harbor for an Oct. 22 match.
