Diving into its second year at Pierce College, the women’s soccer team began their season as an undefeated in the league.

“We started off very strong,” Soccer coach, Luke-Helling Christy said. “We were undefeated for quite a while, it was really enjoyable.”

Several injuries and situations began occurring; this is turn, has left the team in a rough spot. Losing five games in a row, they now find themselves nearing the end of the season with six games won and eight lost.

They’ve experienced several close games such as a 1-1 tie against Bellevue College, and a last minute tie of 2-2 against Northern Idaho College.

Overall, they have proven to have strong individual players such as student Kayla Edgecomb who scores consistently and plays well.

“We have since mended some of our faults and turned things around for the positive,” Christy said.

Two years prior to the current season, the team didn’t even exist. With much work and effort, Christy is now entering his second year of coaching the Pierce women’s soccer team and hopes for successful seasons ahead.

The women’s soccer team hopes to make playoffs in November depending on their performance.
