MEN'S SOCCER: Cardinals fall in their final home game


The North Idaho College men’s soccer hosted Wenatchee Valley College in their final home game of the year on Wednesday, May 12. The Knights took the game from the Cards early. The Cardinals got two crosses in and earned a corner early on, but the Knights got on the board first as they pressed for the ball and won a fifty-fifty close to the Cardinal goal.

At the twenty minute mark, the Knights struck again with a counterattack and Carlos Solis-Viramon got his second goal of the match, this time assisted by Jose Camarillo; NIC got one back pretty quickly though. Getting into the attacking third a minute later, Will Kokernak dribbled by a guy and was fouled just wide of the penalty area. Andrew Abalan’s free kick then went off a Knight’s hand in the penalty area, and Ethan Williams put the penalty kick away in the upper corner.

Down 2-1 at the half, the Cardinals had to defend early, and the Knights busted through in the 60th minute for the 3-1 lead on a goal by Jose Camarillo. As the Cardinals pressed late, they earned several corners and hit the crossbar on a header to no avail. The Wenatchee won by a final score of 3-1.

NIC travels to Columbia Basin in Pasco, Wasington on Saturday, May 15 for a 2:15 p.m. kickoff in the final game of the year.
