College Soccer: Blazers Shut Out Rival Red Devils


Rhiannon Lott and Haylee Ward each scored goals as Centralia College shut out Lower Columbia, 2-0, in a Northwest Athletic Conference West Region matchup Friday in Longview.

It was tough sledding for both teams offensively the two squads played to a stalemate for the first 75 minutes until Lott punched one in with an assist by Ward to put the Blazers up 1-0.

Eleven minutes later, Ward knocked in a goal of her own, unassisted, to finish out the scoring. The Blazers put up 16 total shots, including 14 in the second half, to LCC’s 15.

Centralia College keeper Marison Vargas recorded five saves on the day.

The Trailblazers improve to 4-1-1 and have won two-straight matches now. LCC falls to 0-5-2. The Blazers travel to Bellevue College for a 2 p.m. match on Friday.
