PULLMAN — The Pullman High boys’ soccer team attempted more shots than Shadle Park, and was tied with the Highlanders with about 16 minutes left before giving up a late goal in a 2-1 nonleague loss Tuesday.
We’re seeing a trend where we’re giving up goals late in the game, so we’ve gotta sort something out there,” Pullman coach Doug Winchell said.
The game took place at Valley Fields, on the Washington State campus, because of snow on the Greyhounds’ natural grass field. The teams played through snowy conditions, with parents shoveling snow off the field during halftime, Winchell said.
The Greyhounds’ game on Thursday in Spokane against University will still take place, but their game Saturday at West Valley of Spokane has been postponed because of conditions. No makeup date has been set.
