KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Ethan Sumlin (Centennial, Colo./Littleton HS) scored in the first minute of the second half and Willie Spurr (Seattle, Wash./Roosevelt HS) put one in in the final minute of the match as the Evergreen Geoducks earned a 2-0 win over the Oregon Tech Owls in a Cascade Conference men’s soccer match on Saturday afternoon at Trevor Derrah Field in Klamath Falls, Ore.
After a scoreless first half, it was Sumlin who opened up the scoring after picking up a rebound and firing it into the center of the net from about 15 yards out. The Geoducks continued to put pressure on the Owls defense but it wasn’t until the final minute that Evergreen would score again.
After OIT brought the keeper up to the offensive half of the field, Spurr put in a shot with just one second left on the clock for his eighth goal of the year and a 2-0 win for the green and white.
Keepers Collin Harlow (Kirkland, Wash./Shoreline CC) and Mitch Treend (Vancouver, Wash./Prairie HS) split time in net, combining for four saves and the shutout. Loren Jessen played nearly all 90 minutes for the Owls, making nine saves but allowing the two goals, after coming in six seconds in for senior Tanner Lee, who earned the start in his final home appearance.
The Geoducks return home next Saturday for their regular season finale when they play host to in-state rival Northwest, beginning at 1 p.m. at Evergreen Pitch in Olympia, Wash.
