The T-Birds men's soccer team beat Tacoma 4-2 last week to take over first place in the West Region of the Northwest Athletic Conference.

The T-Birds had seven shots all on goal for four total scores. Jason Rodriguez had three goals and Alex Velasco had one.

"It was a really good team effort," said Head Coach Steve Mohn. "Last time we played them, Tacoma was more cohe- sive as a team then we were."

Earlier, the T-Birds played Pierce at home on Wednesday, Oct. 3 and won 2-0.

Velasco and Rodriguez each scored one goal. However, Noah Runsvold and Gaussou Dou- coure were both penalized with yellow cards and out of the 21 total shots Highline kicked,

only five were on goal. Highline's next game is at

home on Saturday, Oct. 13 against South Puget Sound. Highline also plays Bellevue at home on Wednesday, Oct. 17

"[South Puget Sound, is] coming off a tough loss last week against Pierce. This is a must-win for them to have a chance at post-season, and we are getting their best all year," Mohn said.

The T-Birds' record is 10-1 overall and 6-1 for their con- ference. They remain second in the West Region and are un- defeated on the road. With 40 goals, so far they are averaging 3.64 per game, the second most in the league.

"Last time we had a good game plan and we scored early. [Bellevue] will have that in the back of their minds as we play them," Mohn said.

There are four games re- maining in the season, which includes another rematch with Tacoma. This rematch will like- ly decide the division champi- onship as well as playoff seeds.
