PENALTY KICK SHOOTOUT 

ENDS PLU NCAA DIV. III RUN

The Northwest Conference Champion Pacific Lutheran University women’s soccer team battled host California Lutheran University to a 1-1 double overtime draw on Saturday, Nov. 11, in the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. However it was the host Regals who advanced to the Sweet 16 after owning a 5-4 edge in penalty kicks.

PLU (17-3-2) battled California Lutheran (16-3-3) to a scoreless first half with the Regals owning a slim 4-3 edge in shots.

In the 76th minute, the Regals got on the board with Alexandra Albaeck scoring after chipping the ball in while on her back. Two minutes later, Machaela Graddy answered with her most important goal of the season. Graddy’s goal tied the game at one, where it stayed through both 10-minute overtimes. Cal Lutheran was able to make all five of their penalty kicks as PLU netted just four, advancing the Regals to the third round where they will face Williams College (Mass.) next weekend.

Natalie Robinson tallied 10 saves over the 110-minute contest while her counterpart, Gabby Flores, notched three saves.

“I’m extremely proud of our team,” said PLU head coach Seth Spidahl. “We were playing the best team out of the Southern California area on their home field in a great college soccer environment. I couldn’t be more proud of the character we showed. I’m really proud of how they responded to adversity. Penalty kicks is a tough way to lose. The team was gutted because they put a lot into it, and we fell a little short.”

The game, which officially counts as a tie per NCAA rules, closes a stellar career for the Lute seniors. Over the past four seasons the 2017 seniors have amassed an impressive 62-14-9 record, winning two NWC titles and making two trips to the NCAA Tournament.

“I also want to say thank you to the seniors,” Spidahl said. “They’ve had an incredible career here, and I just want to say thank you to them for all their service, work, passion and dedication to the program. This program continues to improve every year. This year we took another step. Overall it was a great season.”

LUTES VOLLEYBALL FALLS IN 

FIVE-SETS NCAA NAIL-BITER

The Northwest Conference Champion Pacific Lutheran University volleyball team took number one ranked Colorado College to its limit on Saturday, falling short in the fifth set in a 3-2 (21-25, 25-23, 21-25, 25-21, 15-8) setback in the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament held at Southwestern University’s Robertson Center.

PLU (21-5) grabbed the first set, utilizing a Tiger attack error and a Mackenzie Harris kill to secure the 25-21 win. The second set was a nailbiter with the score tied at 23 before Colorado College (33-1) capitalized on a kill and a Lute attack error to take the 25-23 win. Pacific Lutheran trailed 8-4 in the third set but battled back and cemented the 25-21 set win on an Emma Peters service ace. The Lutes scored four of the first five points in the fourth set but the Tigers roared back to take the set 25-21.

The Lutes led 4-2 in the decisive fifth set but CC stormed back, utilizing an 11-2 run en route to the 15-8 win to secure the match and advance to the Sweet 16.

PLU owned an edge on Colorado College in several stat categories. The Lutes owned a 12-9 edge in aces, a 15-10 edge in blocks, and committed 12 fewer errors than the nation’s top-ranked team.

“We came into the regional tournament knowing that it would be a tough road. We were one and done the last eight regionals so to come here and play well and beat Trinity and then give the No. 1 team in the country a run for their money so to speak, says a lot about our team and the composure and togetherness it takes to play at this level,” said NWC Coach of the Year Kevin Aoki. “Although we didn’t win on the scoreboard, we certainly won in the fact we know we left it all out on the floor. We’re more sad about our seniors leaving, not necessarily the loss to Colorado College, and I’m certainly proud of the team.”

PLU offensive production was evenly distributed. Chloe Epker led the team in kills with nine. Isabella Zubrod has eight kills, while Mackenzie Harris and McKenna Ventura both had seven. Danielle Skibiel had a solid game, finishing with six kills along with 10 blocks while Epker added six blocks.

Kinna Calles helped the offense flow. In her final game as a Lute, the Northwest Conference Player of the Year had 33 assists. Caylie Shiramizu dug up several attacks, 17 to be exact.

PLU’s tournament run began on Friday, downing fourth-ranked Trinity University 3-1 to set up the second round clash with No. 1 Colorado College. – By Christian Bond, PLU Sports
