Colville downs Pullman in GNL soccer action

April 3, 2013

Colville High (4-2) pulled off something the boy’s soccer program hasn’t been able to accomplish in recent memory—or ever. Beat Pullman on the pitch.
The Indians forged a 3-0 first half lead in the home match against the Greyhounds on goals by Filipp Susin (first minute), on an assist from Carl Johnston; Chris Benson at the 34-minute mark and Susin again three-minutes later (on an assist from Kris Griessmann).
Pullman bounced back from the 3-0 halftime deficit with a pair of goals to get to within 3-2, but Susin dropped in his third goal of the afternoon at the 72-minute mark to provide Colville with its final 4-2 margin of victory.
Pullman (5-3) out-shot Colville 19-14, but the Indians’ outstanding keeper, Nevin Thompson, recorded 17 saves.
Back on March 26, Colville dropped a tough 2-1 decision at East Valley (4-2).
Colville took a 1-0 halftime lead on Pavel Susin’s goal at the 36-minute mark. But East Valley scored late (at the 60 and 63-minute marks) to pull out the win.
Thompson was outstanding in goal again with 12 saves.
EV outshot CHS 18-6.
Colville was at Clarkston last Saturday and will host Lakeside of the Northeast A League on Friday in a non-league match-up with their former rival. That match starts at 4 p.m.
CHS will return to GNL action on April 9 when they visit Cheney (4 p.m.).
