INW NAIA & NWAC College Recap – Week Five: Turnaround season for Wenatchee Valley men continues

Amidst the NAIA action this week, the Eastern Oregon and College of Idaho women played to a stalemate in their Cascade Collegiate Conference opener while the Yote men split, falling at home in an 11-goal thriller to CCC leading Concordia before winning at Oregon Tech.

Their Frontier Conference counterparts featured a pair of conference showdown on the women's side with Great Falls losing at Westminster while Carroll and Rocky Mountain battled to a scoreless draw. In the lone conference match-up on the men's side, Great Falls won their eighth consecutive a victory against Carroll, both of whom also defeated non-league Trinity Lutheran over the weekend.

In the NWAC East, Spokane, Treasure Valley and North Idaho maintained their status as the top three, going unbeaten on the week. On the men's side Walla Walla, Wenatchee Valley and North Idaho were the top performers on the week with the Warriors topping visiting Spokane and the other two picking up wins away from home.

Here is a rundown of the area schools and their conferences as well as how players from the Inland Northwest performed around the nation in the past week.
