College soccer Pirates win at Edmonds

EDMONDS — Stingy defensive performances by the Peninsula College men’s and women’s soccer teams resulted in a pair of shutout victories at Edmonds.

The Pirate women didn’t allow a single shot on goal in a 3-0 win over the Tritons, frustrating Edmonds into picking up four yellow cards in the contest.

Peninsula (4-0) received goals from Cecilia Jenkins, Makenna Wilson and Alysia Alvarado.

The Pirate men were also up to the task defensively, limiting Edmonds to just two shots on goal and a corner kick — all in the second half of a 2-0 win.

Theodore Baiye scored a goal in the 10th minute off an assist from Nicolas Hernandez and Keigo Takai added an insurance goal in the 68th minute for Peninsula (3-1-0)

Alejandro Lopez stopped both Tritons’ shots to earn a shutout in goal.

The Pirates host Whatcom on Monday with the women’s game at 2 p.m. and the men’s at 4 p.m.
