Portland Community College’s women’s soccer team completed NWAC Southern Region play this week with a 2-1 victory over Southwestern Oregon Community College. The victory secured second place for the Panthers in the South Region and solidified a birth in the NWAC Women’s Soccer Championships.
By finishing second, the Panthers will host a first round playoff game at 2 p.m., Wednesday Nov. 3, at the Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation ballfields next to the Rock Creek Campus. Fans will be allowed to attend the match. All in attendance will be required to follow current PCC Covid-19 health and safety protocols.
PCC will host the third place team from the NWAC West Region. Currently, Pierce College sits in third place, with one region game remaining. Pierce holds a slight lead over Lower Columbia College in the NWAC West Region standings. Final pairing for the Panther’s first round opponent will be announced on Saturday, Oct. 30, when West Region play concludes.
After not playing during the 2020 NWAC soccer season due to Covid-19 protocols, the Panthers were looking to build on the success they enjoyed during the 2019 season when they also hosted a first round playoff game. Led by first year head coach Devlyn Jeter, the Panthers finished 2021 NWAC Southern Region play at an impressive 7-3-2.
