BUGBEE DOUBLE – OVERTIME 

GOAL LIFTS PLU OVER LOGGERS

Bennett Bugbee’s double overtime goal with under two minutes left in double overtime lifted the Pacific Lutheran University men’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over crosstown rival University of Puget Sound in a Northwest Conference showdown at East Field on Saturday, Oct. 7.

The Battle of the South Sound was a fitting moniker as both teams struggled to gain an advantage. At the end of regulation, the Lutes (6-4-2, 4-2-1 NWC) had a slight lead over the Loggers (6-4, 4-3 NWC) in shots, getting up nine attempts to their six. PLU didn’t get another shot off until the 109th minute when Bugbee drilled home a goal off an assist from Chris Trussell to win the game.

“I had the same opportunity earlier in the game. I hit it first time, I didn’t hit it well and it sailed out for a goal kick,” Bugbee noted. “This time, it was sort of the same situation. I saw the guy coming from my left pretty hard, so I decided to take it around him. Luckily my left foot worked today and it went in.”

PLU was solid in the early going, getting up six shots to Puget Sound’s three. The Lutes maximized their chances by accruing corner kicks. The Lutes had six corners, while the Loggers came up with just one.

RJ Noll was crucial for the Lutes on Saturday. The junior out of Yelm made five saves, including a huge save in the first overtime that would gave given Puget Sound the win.

“I was proud of them,” PLU head coach John Yorke said. “I thought we had a very good start to the game. UPS is a very tough team to play against. They are very relentless in the way they pressure you. As a group, we are definitely growing. We are much better right now than we were three weeks ago. I think winning two overtime games in a row against very difficult opponents can only give you confidence moving forward into the second half of the season.”

With the win from men’s soccer, PLU improves to 4-0 in the Battle of the South Sound as women’s soccer, volleyball, and football have beaten Puget Sound in the early part of the 2017-2018 academic year.

The Lutes are back in action Saturday,  Oct. 14, hosting Pacific University at 12 p.m. ˜ by Christian Bond, PLU Sports.

FROM THE CAGE TO THE STAGE – 

JOHNSON’S MULTITUDE OF TALENTS

When she’s not putting in swings in the batting cage, Mckenna Johnson can be found working near a different stage. The Puget Sound softball junior recently made her directorial debut on campus during Homecoming and Family Weekend. The script, written by Puget Sound senior Allie Lawrence, fascinated Johnson from the start: The relationship between personified Pepsi and Coke cans.

“There’s definitely some cheesy humor,” Johnson said about the play she directed. “But it’s cool to show that best friends can have opposite personalities.” The 10-minute play was part of a series of plays during the festive weekend, and it might just be the first of a handful for Johnson.

“I didn’t have much of an opportunity to participate (in the arts),” Johnson recalled of her high school years. “I was just a fan.” But her appreciation turned into active participation when she came to Puget Sound.

This past summer, Johnson held an internship with Artbarn – “an innovative theater company in residence at University of Puget Sound.”  Johnson was part of a team that worked on a fictional story about a group of women that – in time of conflict and war – preserved the legacies of women.

During her three-week internship with Artbarn, Johnson spent up to 12 hours per day researching, writing, and helping with set design. She also participated in workshops with directors from all over the country.

“Mckenna has a number of different talents outside of the softball diamond,” said Puget Sound softball head coach Kellyn Tate. “Her teammates have enjoyed supporting her ability to take her gift of comic relief and apply it on the stage. McKenna helps minimize the most stressful situations by keeping her teammates loose and relaxed. Her personality is definitely fitting for the first play she directed.”

LOGGERS DELIVER A HOMECOMING

WIN FOR THE UPS FAITHFUL

Tanner Diebold threw for 318 yards and two touchdowns and the Logger defense came away with three interceptions as the Puget Sound football team toppled Lewis & Clark, 35-13, in Baker Stadium during Homecoming and Family Weekend on Saturday, Oct. 7.

The Loggers (2-2, 1-1 NWC) scored all 35 points in the first half, starting with their first possession of the game. Puget Sound was forced to punt, but Lewis & Clark (2-2, 1-1 NWC) was drawn offside and the Loggers retained possession. The very next play, Duncan Varela took a direct snap 68 yards to the house.

Puget Sound scored on its next possession thanks to a five-yard rushing score by Vance Wood. Diebold’s 13-yard run on third-and-five set up Wood’s touchdown.

The Pioneers got on the scoreboard late in the first quarter with a 25-yard field goal.

The Loggers reached the end zone three times in the second quarter, all of which came with less than five minutes remaining in the first half. Diebold connected with Jacob Smith for a four-yard score with 4:28 on the clock.

Lewis & Clark then went three-and-out, and Diebold hit Collin Heimbach for an eight-yard score and 1:30 on the clock. Brent McCoy quickly gave the Loggers the ball back with an interception, and Paul Thomas capped off the subsequent Logger drive with a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Varela led the Loggers with 89 rushing yards, and AJ Johnson came away with 89 receiving yards on six receptions. Braden Ash tallied yet another sack, giving him four this season. Zackary Tears and Jason Clayton came away with interceptions against the Pioneers.

Puget Sound entered Saturday’s matchup with the Northwest Conference’s top rushing defense. The Loggers allowed 115 on the ground, while the offense totaled 167 rushing yards.

During halftime, Puget Sound honored the 1967 Logger football team. That squad set 41 program records and was recently honored by the City of Tacoma for its achievements.

The 2017 Loggers return to action at Pacific on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 1 p.m.
