OLYMPIA, Wash. – The 25th-ranked Corban Warriors have only left the field without a win twice on the season and both times have now come against the Evergreen Geoducks as the two teams played to a scoreless draw in a Cascade Conference men’s soccer game on Tuesday afternoon on Evergreen Pitch in Olympia, Wash.
The Warriors (9-0-2, 6-0-2 CCC) controlled the action early as Corban outshot Evergreen (4-5-3, 2-4-2 CCC) by a total of 6-2 in the first half, forcing Geoduck keeper Collin Harlow (Kirkland, Wash./Juanita HS/Shoreline CC) to make three saves to preserve the scoreless draw heading into halftime.
Corban again outshot the Geoducks, 8-5, in the second half but the Geoduck defense held tough as the two teams remained scoreless after 90 minutes played.
In the overtime periods, the Geoducks became the offensive aggressor as Evergreen was responsible for both shots in the first extra period but Corban keeper Jordan Farr did his job, making a pair of saves to force a second overtime.
In the second overtime, both teams had an opportunity to get the game winner as Corban’s Eliseo Santana found himself with a chance from the top of the box in the 103rd minute but a Geoduck defender got in the way to start the transition down the field.
Evergreen nearly scored the game winner in the final minute as Willie Spurr (Seattle, Wash./Roosevelt HS) gathered a loose ball after a save but it slipped over the crossbar as the teams settled for the scoreless draw.
Both keepers had a strong game as Harlow finished with six saves while Farr made five saves as both players collected the shutout for their respective teams.
The match was also physical between the boxes as eight total yellow cards were shown, including four to each team.
Evergreen hits the road this weekend, traveling to Portland to take on Warner Pacific. First kick is set for 1:00 p.m. at David Douglass High School.
