The Storm men’s soccer team entered their contest on October 29th in a tie for first place. They needed a win to at worst share the region championship and secure a first round playoff bye, as well as hosting a second round playoff match. The Storm proved to be a category 5 for the visiting Rogue Osprey. The Storm started strong and jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead. They controlled the ball for the majority of the half constantly putting pressure on the visitors. The halftime break did not slow the Storm as they came out even stronger. Again with ball control and constant pressure on their opponent the Storm added 5 more goals and finished the game with an 8-1 victory. The win secured a share of the league title and the number one seed for playoffs. As luck would have it, Portland Community College with whom the Storm were tied entering the day, could only manage a tie in their match. Thus giving the Storm the outright Southern Region league championship.
As the Southern Region number one seed the Storm will play host to a second round playoff match this coming Saturday November 5th at 6:00pm. The game will be played at Willamette University verses an opponent to be determined. The Storm will face the winner of the North Idaho and Pierce match up, which will be held on Wednesday at North Idaho. North Idaho is the number 2 seed out of the Eastern Region and Pierce is the number 3 seed out of the Western Region. The winner of Saturday’s match will move on the NWAC Men’s Soccer Final Four Championships, which will be held November 11th through the 13th at Starfire Sports Complex in Seattle, Washington.
