SPRINGFIELD, OR – The Pirates opened their 2016 season with a successful showing at the Northwest Athletic Conference Fall Sports Festival last weekend.

The defending champion Pirate men, playing without several starters, defeated defending South champion Clark 3-0 Saturday and tied defending West champion Highline 3-3 on Sunday, staking an early claim as one of the NWAC’s top men’s teams for 2016.

The Pirate women, who were upset in the semifinals last year by Highline, split their non-conference matches, defeating the defending South Region champion Titans 3-0 on Lane’s home field Saturday, and then falling to West champion and NWAC runner-up Highline in a 2-1 thriller on Sunday.

The two PC teams will see their next action Monday, Sept. 5, at Spokane where the women will take on the defending NWAC champion Sasquatch at 10 a.m. and the men will tackle a very strong Spokane men’s club at 12:15.
The Pirates open North Region play Sept. 10 at Shoreline and Sept. 14 at Everett before making their 2016 home debut Sept. 17 against Skagit Valley.

After dominating Lane on Saturday, the Peninsula men found themselves in an early hole against Highline. Both teams got off quality shots in the first half, but the only shots that found the net came from the Thunderbirds, who posted a surprising 3-0 advantage at halftime.

Cale Rodriguez, who won the NWAC title in his first year as head coach, has recruited 11 players from his home state of California in what appears to be a very strong recruiting class to go along with eight returners.

“This recruiting class is an excellent group of talented and high character individuals,” Rodriguez said. “The challenge with this group will be getting them adapted to the college game quickly, as we have a tough preseason ahead of us. I am hopeful that this group can step in right away and help the program continue a high level of success with the help and experience of the returning group.”

“I am excited to get to work as preseason is just around the corner,” Rodriguez said.
