WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee Valley College women’s soccer team earned a 4-4 draw with Treasure Valley on Saturday at Mike Hollis Field.
The Knights (1-9-2 Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges East Region) have been playing relatively well as of late, earning five points (1-2-2 record) over their last five games.
WVC, down 4-1 late in the second half, tallied three goals in the span of five minutes to forge a tie that wouldn’t be broken.
Itzel Castro scored in the 72nd minute off an assist from Dani Vargas, and two minutes later Vargas brought the Knights to within one with a goal of her own.
In the 77th minute, Alma Franco tied the contest, scoring a goal from a Vargas assist.
Kirsten Flones made five saves for WVC.

WVC suffered a home loss, and saw its East Region record drop to 2-6-2.
“We played well for a while, just couldn’t find the net. After we scored on the (penalty kick), we tried to get the (win), but they countered on us twice,” Knights head coach Garrett Brown said. “We just couldn’t finish in front of the net.”
Brown said “it’s unfortunate,” but with how the standings work out, his team still has a shot at third place.
