MOUNT VERNON — Peninsula College earned a road soccer sweep of North Region rival Skagit Valley, with the No. 1-ranked Pirate men edging the second-ranked Cardinals 1-0 and the women triumphing 3-0.

Peninsula (8-1-1, 11-1-1) broke through in the 54th minute when Shu Kato scored off of an assist by Yusaku Shimakura. The goal stood up through the remainder of the match despite Skagit Valley’s best efforts.

Pirates goalkeeper Alejandro Lopez saved four shot attempts to earn the shutout in goal.

Peninsula outshot Skagit Valley (6-2-2, 7-3-2) 12-11, earned six corner kicks to the Cardinals’ five and made more saves than Skagit (6-5).

The top-ranked Pirate women (5-0-0, 7-0-1) earned a 3-0 shutout of Skagit Valley.

Peninsula’s Mya Raunig put the Pirates on the board in the 37th minute; Kenzie Banner added a goal in the 55th minute, and Chiaki Takase’s assist set up Sydney Soskis’ insurance goal in the 85th minute.

Peninsula goalkeeper Frida Markstrom saved three shots to earn the clean sheet.

The Pirate men and women will host Everett on Saturday as part of Peninsula College’s Fan Appreciation Day featuring free snacks and prizes. Kickoff has been moved back to 3:30 p.m. (women) and 5:30 p.m. (men).
