Women's soccer team loses 2-1 in final
TUKWILA — The Edmonds CC Triton women's team fell to the Peninsula Pirates 2-1 in
the NWAACC championship game at Starfire Sports Complex on Sunday, Nov. 17.
Port Townsend graduate Irina Lyons scored for Edmonds in the 40th minute to give the Tritons a 1-0 lead. The Tritons held the Pirates in check until the 68th minute when Bri Afoa set up Dominique Niedziela for the equalizer.
Three minutes later, Larkyn Nelson scored the go-ahead goal off an assist by Annie Armstrong. Niedziela, who also scored in the Pirates' semifinal win over Walla Walla on Saturday night, was named postseason MVP.
In its four seasons of existence, the Peninsula women's soccer program has won two NWAACC titles and made three championship game appearances. The title match appearance is the third for Edmonds and first under eighth-year head coach Jeanette Delaney.
Edmonds CC's last appearance was in 2002, when it won the championship under then head coach Teddy Mitalas, father of Edmonds CC's men's head coach Brandon Mitalas.
