COLLEGE SOCCER: Peninsula men help All-Star team win

TUKWILA — Eight players from Peninsula College helped the Northwestern Athletic Conference North-East All-Stars beat the South-West squad 5-1.

Peninsula’s Cesar Gervacio, the MVP of the North-East Region and Salvador Vargas each had a goal in the match played before the NWAC Women’s Championship, which was won by Peninsula over Highline.

A total of eight Peninsula men — Gervacio, Vargas, Demar Stewart, Juan Carrillo, Jason Ramos, Jose Soto, Marlon Nava and goaltender Brannon Dwyer — were named to the All-Star team. It was also coached by Peninsula head coach Cale Rodriguez.

The Peninsula men went 16-1-2 this season and lost in the NWAC quarterfinals to Tacoma on penalty kicks. Tacoma (15-2-5) went on to win the NWAC championship, beating Spokane 2-1 Sunday in the title game.

“Coaching in the all star game was a unique experience. It was refreshing to coach some other talented players in the north and east divisions. I thought PC was well represented with eight nods and two players getting goals,” said Rodriguez.

“Credit to all the players for taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase their abilities. I think the score line is an indication of the talent that exists in the two divisions. Lastly, having gone undefeated all season long, I wanted to make sure my team came out on top at the end. It was nice to finish the season on a positive note with a win,” Rodriguez said.
