SPOKANE — Pullman of the 2A ranks fell to 4A University 3-0 on Thursday night in a nonleague boys’ soccer match despite the Greyhounds sticking within a goal for a half.
Early in the second half, the nominal hosts scored their second goal.
This game took place at Merkel Sports Complex because of wintry conditions.
Pullman will likely next play on Thursday at conference foe East Valley.
That’s because the Greyhounds’ game this Saturday at West Valley has been officially postponed because of field issues relating to the long winter. And Pullman’s home game Tuesday, with the Greyhounds welcoming Cheney, is also likely to suffer the same fate, Pullman coach Doug Winchell said.
Even though his team fell on Thursday, Winchell said that “it was good to schedule, (since University’s) big, fast and talented and they’re able to seize on some of our weaknesses, so now we know some specific things we want to address as we head into league.”
