Edmonds, despite having a losing record, has played Peninsula tough this season as the only slight blemish on the Pirates’ otherwise perfect record — a 0-0 draw — came against the Tritons on Sept. 14.

The win puts Peninsula College six points ahead of second-place Everett with seven matches to go as the Pirates are gunning for their first North Division title since 2016.
