MENS SOCCER (2-4-1, 3-5-2)
Saturday, Columbia Basin (1-2-3, 2-6-3) home.
A series can’t get any closer than the Knights and Hawks. Through 28 games Wenatchee Valley has won 12, Columbia Basin 12 and there have been four ties. Unfortunately for the local squad recent history has not been the best. Through 2008 WVC led the series 12-5-3. A little math shows that in the past four years CBC has gone 7-0-1. On Mike Hollis Field the Knights maintain an 8-5-2 advantage. With a win and a tie in their last three games the Knights are now third in the league, one spot in front of Columbia Basin.
Standings: Walla Walla 5-0-2, Spokane 4-1-1, Wenatchee Valley 2-4-1, Columbia Basin 1-2-3, Treasure Valley 1-5-1
WOMENS SOCCER (0-7-1, 0-9-1)
Wednesday, Yakima Valley (0-8-0, 1-9-0) away.
After securing a tie at Treasure Valley to break a 13-game losing streak, the Knights go after their first win in over two seasons against winless Yakima Valley today. If they come back to campus today triumphant, they will have put an end to a 42-game winless streak. In a dozen games with the Yaks the Yakima outfit has won six, WVC three and there have been three ties. On the YVCC field the home team leads 4-1-1.
Saturday, Columbia Basin (2-4-2, 4-4-2) home.
The Knights have played the Hawks more than anybody…33 times (Spokane and Walla Walla 32 apiece). CBC has not made life easy for WVC. The Pasco club leads the series 24-7-2 and 12-3-1 at their place. And since 2007 it’s really been unpleasant as the Hawks are 11-0-1.
Standings: Walla Walla 7-0-1, Spokane 5-0-3, Columbia Basin 2-4-2, Treasure Valley 0-5-3, Wenatchee Valley 0-7-1, Yakima Valley 0-8-0
VOLLEYBALL (1-4, 2-13)
Wednesday, Walla Walla (4-1, 15-7) home.
The Knights host two of the best this week. First Walla Walla who is tied for second, and then first place Blue Mountain. Walla Walla has won four in a row from WVC to break a 6-6 deadlock in the series and take a 10-6 lead. The Warriors have won 10 of their last 12, losing only to North Region leader Bellevue and the East leader Blue Mountain. In the local gym Wenatchee Valley has won two of six against WWCC.
Saturday, Blue Mountain (6-0, 25-1) home.
And then it gets even tougher as the defending NWAACC champs come to town. The Timberwolves have gone from whimpers to howls. When Wenatchee started volleyball in 2007 Blue Mountain finished eighth and the next year sixth. After that is has been first, first, second, first and they’re on top again. The Knights defeated the Timberwolves nine straight times to begin the series. That changed. Now BMCC has dropped WVC 11 consecutive times. In W.B. Smith the two teams are 3-3.
Standings: Blue Mountain 6-0, Walla Walla 4-1, Spokane 4-1, Big Bend 3-3, Treasure Valley 3-4, Wenatchee Valley 1-4, Columbia Basin 1-4, Yakima Valley 1-6
