PORTLAND, Ore. – After Evergreen upset Concordia last season, the third-ranked Cavaliers made sure that history wouldn’t repeat itself, blasting the Geoducks, 8-0, in a Cascade Conference women’s soccer match on Sunday afternoon in Portland, Ore.
The Cavs first got on the board in the 16th minute as Alicia Alarcon-Evans took opportunity of a one-on-one with Evergreen keeper Kaitlin MacKenzie (Lake Stevens, Wash./Shoreline CC) and scored from 15 yards out. Concordia added two more goals before halftime as the Cavs took the 3-0 lead into the break.
In the second half, Concordia didn’t let off the gas as the Cavs would add five more scores to the board in the final 45 minutes of play. The Cavaliers outshot the Geoducks, 35-6, on the afternoon and held a 9-0 advantage on corner kicks.
MacKenzie finished with five saves in the first half before being replaced in net by Lauren Davidson (Seattle, Wash./Garfield HS), who made three saves while allowing the five scores. Tori Talbutt made four saves for Concordia before being replaced by Nicole Franklin in the 75th minute.
The Geoducks conclude the 2012 campaign with a record of 2-11-1 overall and 2-7-0 in Cascade Conference play, good enough for eighth place in the conference standings.
