INW College Recap - Week 11: GNAC & NWC - Central Washington set for GNAC tournament as two-seed

In a preview of their GNAC semifinal contest coming up this weekend, the Central Washington Wildcats concluded the season with a narrow 1-0 victory over Seattle Pacific to move into second, though the tournament is being held at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, WA.

The GNAC men still have one week outstanding as they will not play a tournament, and the Northwest Conference still has one more weekend of play remaining, though the Puget Sound men have clinched the men's title. On the women's side the Loggers are also in the top spot, though they leaped into it by defeating Linfield, who had been at the top for most of the campaign. They both have two games in the final weekend of action.
