The Titans soccer team improved to a 5-3-0 record in league play after a 1-0 victory over the Clark Community College Penguins on Wednesday, Sep. 25.

With that win, the Titans move into second place in the NWACC southern region behind Clackamas Community college. The Titans have won four of their last five games with the only defeat coming at the hands of the Olympic Community College Rangers.

“It’s my hometown, so it was a big deal to win,” sophomore goalkeeper Samantha Schoene said after the victory over Clark.

The only goal came from freshman defender Jordan Hevern in the 25th minute of the game with a high arching kick bouncing off the right bar.

“The aggressive practice made it easier to come out ready to win,” Hevern added.

Even though Hevern was the only one to score for the Titans, there were many opportunities to score with the first coming from freshman forward Aubrie Hood.

“We just knew what we had to do to win today so we just came out and everybody was all for it,” Schoene said.

Schoene made five saves the whole game with only one goal being a close call. The ball went over the goal and the Titans crowd breathed a sigh of relief.

After the shutout win, Hevern stated that this win will bring them one step closer to becoming NWAACC champions.
