AREA SPORTS BRIEFS: Peninsula women’s soccer ranked No. 3 in the nation; men ranked No. 6

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Peninsula College women’s soccer team is ranked No. 3 among Div. II community colleges and the Peninsula College men’s soccer team is ranked No. 6 in the latest rankings from the United Soccer Coaches.

Both teams were undefeated going into their matches Wednesday. The men are 12-0-0 and the women are 11-0-2. The Peninsula men and the women have combined for 19 shutouts this year.

Interestingly, the Highline College women are right behind Peninsula at No. 4. Highline and Peninsula have played for the NWAC championship three out of the past four years, with Peninsula winning two of those matches.

Among the men, Whatcom is ranked right behind Peninsula at No. 8 in the nation. Whatcom and Peninsula, both in the NWAC’s North Region, played a couple of weeks ago with the Pirates earning a hard-fought 4-2 win in a very physical match at Wally Sigmar Field. That is Whatcom’s only loss on the season. The teams meet again in Bellingham on Oct. 27.
