College Recap - GNAC: Lindsay lights it up for Seattle Pacific; MSUB blanks Simon Fraser

Spokane's Megan Lindsay caught fire, scoring a pair of braces on the weekend to guide Seattle Pacific to a pair of victories to keep them in the race for the regular season title with Western Washington and their record-holding goalkeeper Jamie Arthurs (Richland, WA). On the men's side, MSU-Billings had quite the weekend, downing Western Washington in overtime and taking Division II scoring leaders Simon Fraser all the way in a scoreless stalemate.

Seattle Pacific 4 :: 2 Saint Martin’s
In a back and forth contest, the Falcons trailed twice on the road before pulling away with three goals in the second half. Caley Wiseman gave the hosts the lead in the 25th minute on a 30-yard strike with Megan Lindsay (Spokane, WA) answering 10 minutes later on a 10-yard half-volley. A 20-yard Nicole Nedervelt free kick put Saint Martin’s back on top five minutes before the break with Lindsay again evening terms on the hour mark, heading in a cross from Laura Moore. Five minutes later Moore chipped the keeper to give SPU the lead on a ball from Kaylie Winston (Pasco, WA), who then found Heather Young in the 72nd to cap the game.

Western Oregon 1 :: 2 Central Washington
The visitors took the lead three minutes into the contest and held the advantage for nearly an hour before the Wildcats replied with two goals from Lauren Duty in the span of eight minutes.
