SPORTS: Peninsula College men’s and women’s soccer teams advance to playoffs

PORT ANGELES — It was a first for Peninsula College as both the men’s and women’s soccer teams earned NWAACC home playoff berths Saturday.

It was a good day for the Pirates as the women finished second and the men captured the first-place seed.

The men’s team needed Bellevue to tie or lose its final match to decide the No. 1 seed. Bellevue tied in Saturday’s game to hand the top seed to the Pirates.

As a result, the Peninsula men ended up being the West Division champions and now have the home-field advantage for their first playoff match this coming Saturday.

The Pirates will host Wednesday’s first-round winner between Pierce and Whatcom at 2 p.m. at Civic Field.

The Peninsula women needed to win and needed Highline to lose in order for them to finish in the No. 2 seed in the West Division, and that’s what they got.

The Pirates won their match against Green River 2-0, and got their wish as Highline lost to Bellevue, allowing Peninsula to host its first playoff game.

The Peninsula women’s first-round game will be Wednesday at Civic Field starting at 1 p.m. against Spokane.
