INW College Recap - Week 5: Walla Walla & Spokane proving only hopes for NWAACC East

As the inter-divisional play continues in the NWAACC between the East and North, it is becoming increasingly clearer each game day that the CC Spokane and Walla Walla CC men and women are the best sides as they are the only programs continually registering positive results outside of the division. They were a combined 6-0-1 on the week with the only other victories for the East coming via the Wenatchee Valley men and Columbia Basin women as the North came out on top with an 11-8-1 mark for the week between the two divisions.

Alex Rodriguez stopped a penalty for NIC to keep the game scoreless in the first half, but EOU finally broke through in the 69th for the lead, though Whittni Mundel made an initial save on the play only to see it rebound off the crossbar and put away by an awaiting striker.
