Walla Walla 1 :: 0 Spokane
In a close-fought contest it looked it might go scoreless until Mario Guizar (Kennewick, WA) took advantage of the space given to him and fired from the edge of the box, finding the corner of the goal in the 89th minute. The game wasn't quite over though as Spokane hit the woodwork multiple times in a frenzied finish in the final minute plus stoppage time. Ulisses Faurrieta held on for the shutout with five saves.

Tasha Luu
Wednesday, October 9
