PORT ANGELES – The Peninsula College women and men rolled through the first of three rounds of North Division soccer play with unbeaten records, following a pair of shutouts over Edmonds at Sigmar Field Saturday.

Remarkably the Pirate women won all five matches without surrendering a goal. Peninsula (5-0, 6-1-1) racked up 25 goals and allowed none, despite playing everyone on the roster, including four goal keepers. The Pirates are ranked No. 3 in the Northwest Athletic Conference and No. 19 in the nation.

The Pirate men (5-0, 7-0-1) have scored 20 goals and given up seven, but they tightened up the defense last week, recording back-to-back shutouts against sixth-ranked Whatcom and seventh-ranked Edmonds. The PC men are ranked No. 1 in the NWAC poll and remain unranked nationally.

The Peninsula women and men tackle arguably their toughest North Division opponent on Wednesday when Shoreline visits the PC campus for a pair of matches at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the second of a five-game home stand. Back on Sept. 10 at Shoreline, the Pirate women escaped with a 1-0 win over the Dolphins and the men rallied from behind to win 4-3.
