PORT ANGELES – Peninsula College soccer fans have been starving for soccer since the season ended back in November, but they were treated to a feast, both on and off the field, at the fourth annual Rumble in the Rainforest Saturday at Sigmar Field.

The Pirate women and men each played two exhibition matches in a six-team event that featured outstanding food from the Pirate Cove Café, beverages from Next Door Gastropub, and soccer from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“The fourth annual rumble in the rainforest was very successful,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “Congrats to Tim tucker and the Pirate soccer program for hosting a great day of exhibition soccer at Sigmar Field. Great food, great weather and a nice crowd throughout the day. It was a treat to see our outstanding sophomores one last time at home.”

It was also a big day for the home town players.

The Pirate women won both matches, beating Saint Martin’s University 1-0 on a goal by Ellie Small in the 10th minute. They then rallied to defeat Olympic Force, a semi-pro team out of Bremerton, 3-0. The first goal came from Sequim red-shirt freshman Leslie Cisneros in the 13th minute. The Pirates added insurance goals from Small just 10 minutes later, and then from Hoku Afong in the final five minutes of the match.

Keo Ponce, Cale Rodriguez, Manny Medina signing

PORT ANGELES – Nine Peninsula College men’s soccer players have now signed to play at colleges and universities across the country.

“I am really excited for our sophomores moving on to four year institutions and programs,” Pirate head coach Cale Rodriguez said. “It’s a testament to their hard work, dedication and what our programs can provide for those who commit themselves to the goals that we set. I think it is very evident, based off of this group of players, the opportunities that can result from being a part of the soccer programs here at Peninsula College.”

Four more Pirate sophomores recently signed NCAA letters of intent, joining five who signed in March.
