KIRKLAND, WA — So much for wondering what starting a soccer match at 10 AM on a Saturday might do. The Northwest University Eagles baked up a dozen goals and served them hot to their unfortunate foes on Saturday morning September 6. The eventual final score was 12-0 over the Lions of Multnomah University who are in their first year as a men’s soccer program.

Odason Pelogi opened up the scoring with his game winner just 2:47 into the game as he took Todd Siedenburg‘s corner kick and put it into the back side of the net from 10 yards out. Siedenburg got into the scoring column in the 15th minute as he scored from the middle right from Taylor Young‘s pass. Pelogi scored his second goal of the half at the 25:33 mark as he curved his 12 yard shot into the upper right side of the goal. Taylor Young andChris Iacolucci finished off the first half scoring with goals for the Eagle pushing the score to 5-0 at the break.
The scoring for Northwest U (2-0) continued in the second half as Kyle Zimmerman, Brendon Wheeler, Hunter Madich, Taylor Turner, and Jacob Weaver all score goals for the Eagles.

NU will remain at home next week when they host Walla Walla University for two games on Sept. 10 and 11. Both games are at 4 p.m.
The Lions are an NCCAA school that is suffering through a stretch of lopsided losses, all in the name of starting thir new men’s soccer program. They continue to leak goals at 0-4 with losses of 6-0, 9-0 and another 12-0 scoreline. It’s the Lions’ second straight 12-0 loss.
In 2015 MU will join the Cascade Collegiate Conference where they will see Northwest once again in league matches.
