INW Collegiate Recap: Lower division scan of GNAC, NWC, CCC & Frontier

Around the lower levels of the college game, close contests seemed to be the theme of the week, particularly in the Northwest Conference where six of the eight women's matches went to extra time. The Whitworth women suffered their first conference loss in one of the overtime contest while on the men's side the Pirates kept their unbeaten status intact with an overtime winner. Other highlights on the weekend featured Carroll College earning a scoreless draw against 10th-ranked CSU-San Marcos only to be downed for the first time by conference foe Westminster two days later.


Northwest Nazarene 1 :: 2 MSU-Billings
Two breakaways propelled the Yellowjackets to the victory. Teegan Koster fed Heidi Greenback in the 33rd minute and in the 71st Jackie Hill (Boise, ID) and Jaucelyn Richter (Billings, MT) combined to put Alisa Sagdahl through to double the lead. Five minutes later the visiting Crusaders made an attempt at a rally, but could only get one back on a scramble in front of goal that finished with Jenny Field (Nampa, ID) chipping one in from five yards. – MORE

Fesenbeck would score a goal of her own in the 101st minute, tallying from five yards out on a cross from Kellynn McDaniel (Boise, ID). – MORE

College of Idaho 4 :: 0 Eastern Oregon
The Yotes controlled the match from the outset, taking the lead in the eighth minute through an 18-yard effort into the far upper corner from Katy Radko (Meridian, ID).

Sarah Hicks (Boise, ID) wrapped up the scoring in the 55th via a Brittney Lacey (Boise, ID) through ball. – MORE 

Southern Oregon 3 :: OT :: 2 Warner Pacific
The Knights took the lead after just nine minutes and held onto it for nearly an hour before the visitors equalized. The Raiders then took the lead in a wild finish courtesy of Julie Zamzow (Boise, ID) with only 24 second remaining. But a goalkeeping handling error with six seconds left allowed a long effort from Ranie Gramm (Missoula, MT) to send the match to overtime. Nine minutes into extra time, though, SOU found the winner through Stephanie Carr on a tap-in after another misplayed long ball.

Corban 1 :: 4 Northwest-U
Acacia Johnson led the hosts to the win with a hat-trick, scoring the first four minutes in and adding two more in the second half.

Northwest Christian 3 :: OT :: 2 Evergreen
A hat-trick from Melyssa Weber guided NCU to the win, but not before a two-goal comeback by the Geoducks in the second half that was kick-started by Haley Lightfoot in the 69th minute.

Oregon Tech 0 :: 2 Concordia
In an utterly dominant performance Tori Talbutt only had to make one save, stopping Tech’s lone shot. Hanna Scott scored the opener for the hosts 13 minutes in and Ashley Ames (Liberty Lake, WA) doubled the lead eight minutes later.

Northwest Christian 1 :: 2 Northwest-U
The hosts took the lead on the hour mark from the penalty spot after a handball in the box with Rachel Saleen (Boise, ID) converting. NCU equalized in the 84th but gave up the lead again two minutes later.

Corban 5 :: 1 Evergreen
A goal from Haley Lightfoot (Spokane, WA) in the 78th minutes was mere consolation after a hat-trick and assist propelled Corban to a five-goal lead.

#10 CSU-San Marcos 3 :: 0 Westminster

#20 Carroll 0 :: 0 #10 CSU-San Marcos

Rocky Mountain 2 :: 1 Jamestown College
A fantastic season continues as the Battlin’ Bears overcame an early deficit on the road in North Dakota, giving coach Richard Duffy his 100th victory with the program in 11 years (100-72-7). Jaelene Zygmond (Billings, MT) found the school’s new all-time scoring leader Kirsty Montignani for her 18th of the season in the29th minute  to level the game six minutes after falling behind. Lauren Brophy (Helena, MT) provided the winner in the 37th as RMC held on for the victory. – MORE  |  MORE      

#20 Carroll 0 :: 2 #23 Westminster
Westminster has the solution for Carroll’s stingy defense, scoring twice in the course of two weeks against the Saints, who have not allowed more than a goal in their 10 other contests. In Montana a week ago, though, Carroll came out on top 3-2. This time the host Griffins found the solution themselves defensively and took the lead just before the intermission when Jessica Harris nodded in a corner from Lorin Wathen in the 39th minute and got some insurance when Justine Jones (Boise, ID) let loose from about 25 yards in the 62nd minute.  – MORE
