CBC men’s soccer team wraps up No. 2 seed

October 31, 2012 

Goalkeeper Antonio Gonzalez saved Columbia Basin College’s hopes of getting the No. 2 seed in the NWAACC East. But he didn’t do it with his hands.

Gonzalez had an assist on former Pasco player Richard Renteria’s goal in the 91st minute, and the host Hawks tied 1-1 with Spokane on Wednesday.

CBC needed a win or draw to get the No. 2 seed behind Walla Walla, but the Hawks fell behind on Matt Harper’s goal in the 21st minute.

Gonzalez made sure the Hawks would achieve their goal.

“He picked it up and punted it down,” coach Kyle Vierck said. “The ball happened to come down, and Richard got ahold of it and put it in, and it gave us our tie and gave us our No. 2 seed. It was a pretty epic moment.”

The Hawks will host Pierce next Wednesday, but the time and site have yet to be determined.

Scoring--1, S, Matt Harper (Jared Fretheim), 21:00. 2, CBC, Richard Renteria (Antonio Gonzalez), 91:00. Shots—S 8, CBC 8. Saves—S, Bridger Peres 4. CBC, Gonzalez 3.

Spokane volleyball 3, CBC 0: Samantha Brewer had 10 kills and three blocks, but it wasn’t enough as the Hawks fell in straight sets on the road to the Sasquatch.

“We’re in a battle for fourth place to see who goes to the NWAACCs, and tonight kind of hurt our chances,” CBC coach Mike Baker said. “We need to win out and get a little help.”

Yessica Diaz totaled 16 digs, and Michelle McCary had 13 for the Hawks.

Set scores: 25-12, 25-17, 26-24. CBC--Samantha Brewer 10K, 3B; Carolyn Smith 15 assists; Yessica Diaz 16 digs; Michelle McCary 13 digs.
