Chemeketa wins first ever men's soccer title
TUKWILA, WA -- The Chemeketa Stormc captured it's first ever title with a 2-1 win over West Region third seed Olympic tonight at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila.
Felipe Heredia MVP
Chemeketa got on the scoreboard first in the 42nd minute with a Pedro Gonzalez score on a header off a cross by Felipe Heredia to put CHCC up 1-0. Heredia made some amazing moves through the Ranger defense to set up the shot for Gonzalez.
Olympic countered in the 71st minute when Victor Akoi launched a rocket shot that reflected off the post and James Horan rammed it in from ten yards out to knot the match at one all.
Heredia sealed the deal for Chemeketa in the 85th minute when he chipped in a cross from Brian Avila to earn fourth year program Chemeketa's first NWAACC title.
The title match was Olympic's first.
Heredia, the second leading scorer in the league, was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.
