Back on the Winning Track

Sept. 28 – in a match closer than the final score would indicate, Highline defeated the visiting Centralia Trailblazers 3-0 box on a sunny afternoon at the Starfire Soccer Complex.  The victory sets the Thunderbirds at 7-2-0 for the season and 5-1-0 in league play, in a first place tie with Tacoma in the NWAC West Division. Centralia falls to 6-2-2 (2-2-1 in league).

Although the first half was mostly spent with Highline in the Trailblazer half of the field, the Thunderbirds, despite swarming the net, could not put together any combinations to get the ball past Centralia goalkeeper Emily Sorenson, who ended the match with 12 saves.  The half ended in a scoreless tie as Highline’s Rachel Thompson (5 saves) also sparkled in goal. It wasn’t until the 70 minute mark that a scramble to the left of the Trailblazer net led to Tea Lopes first goal of the year, assisted by Sara Olanda.  Centralia almost tied the match soon after a shot banged off the Highline crossbar, over the outstretched hand of Thompson, caromed straight down, somehow missing the goal line.  This was Centralia’s last, best chance. At the 82 minute mark Highline’s Maya Gray, on a long run up the right side, scored from about 20 yards on a thumping shot delivered at a very tough angle. The assist went to Bianca Acuario.  Highline capped the scoring after Chentay Warnes’ fifth goal of the season at 88 minutes on a penalty kick.

The T-Birds get a week off before hosting the Pierce Raiders on Oct. 5 at the Starfire Soccer Complex.

Shearing the Clippers
Sept. 28 -  Following a physical, nail-biter win over Tacoma , Highline took to the road and put the match away early, defeating the South Puget Sound Clippers 5-1 box. The Thunderbirds started fast, with Brandon Gonzalez 3rd goal of the year at the 8 minute mark.  Jason Rodriguez tallied his team leading 6th goal at 20 minutes, and Mohamed Jelyani added his 2nd goal of the season at 36 minutes to close out the half.  The Clippers' Sergio Vela opened second half scoring at 53 minutes but the Thunderbirds pulled away with Tino Lopez-Slish's first goal of the year at 64 minutes, followeb by Jandjamuje Maharero closing out the scoring at 70 minutes (his 3rd of the season).  Cooper Hutchins recorded the win in goal.
Highline continues its fast start, improving to 6-0-1 for the season and 5-0-0 in league play.  The team next hosts Pierce College on Oct. 5.

Crunching Centralia
Sept. 28:  The host Centralia Trailblazers proved to be no match for the surging Highline volleyball team as the Thunderbirds roared past their opponents in straight sets 25-11, 25-3, 25-23.  Apryll Eneliko led both teams with 12 kills while Taylor Alicuben had 31 assists and Lindsay Nein and Zoe Gaines both added 8 digs.
Highline now stands at 22-3 for the season and 3-0 in conference play, good for first place in the NWAC West Division.


Congratulation to Taylor Alicuben,
named as the NWAC Under Armour Volleyball Player of the Week (Sept. 28)


"In six sets last week, Alicuben had 72 assists (12 assist per set), 8 kills on a 90% kill efficiency,
5 service aces and 9 blocks (7 solo)."
