Blazers Hold on to Defeat Clark on the Road


Hanging on thanks to terrific play in goal by Maggie McAuley, the Centralia College women’s soccer team defeated Clark, 1-0, Saturday on the road. 

The Trailblazers (6-3, 4-1 NWAC) were stout defensively, limiting the Penguins to five shots on goal, which McAuley managed to wrangle to keep a clean sheet. 

Abigail Hansen’s lone goal in the 12th minute was all the Blazers needed to notch the win.

“I am pleased with the whole team's performance, especially on the defensive side,” Blazers coach Clarence Gunderson said. “Collectively we were strong in that half, and Maggie our keeper was the player of the match.”

The Trailblazers take on Highline next at home on Wednesday.
