UCSC Edges Whitworth a Soccer Classic
SPOKANE, WA.-- Whitworth could not break through against the stifling defense of UC Santa Cruz as the visiting Banana Slugs pulled out a 1-0 win over the Pirates in the opening game of the Whitworth Soccer Classic. Whitman College defeated Capital University 1-0 in overtime of the nightcap.
Whitworth (2-1) mustered only three shots against UCSC, and only two of those forced Slug keeper Monica Chazen to make a save.
Meanwhile UCSC kept the Pirates on their heals, putting up 14 shots (seven on goal). Callie Bergstrom (So., GK, Spokane, Wash.) made six saves for the Bucs.
