Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 5C Abeyta, McDonnell lead FRC to win Greg Knight the game was this: Sherifa her pair of on-target shots on was pretty good it wasn't Sports Writer For Lady 'Golden Eagle sophomores Ryann Abeyta and Shannell McDonnell, Feather River College's 3-1 victory over the Lassen Community College Lady Cougars soccer squad was an exercise in winning and, according to head coach Don Williams, an improvement in the level of play between the duo from Las Vegas. Abeyta, a forward for'FRC, took to the goal late in the first half, at the 36th minute, off an assist from Sherifatu Sumaila that gave the Golden Eagles their upstart 1-0 lead. After that score, it was a drought the remainder of the first half and nearly all of the second as the Cougars marked Sumaila in single- and double-defender coverage. "The interesting part about was marked heavily again all game long, very tightly," Williams said. "She wasn't able to score but she was able to break away on a pair of assists. Since they were covering her so much, the real story of the game became Ryann." After McDonnell scored the second goal in the 74th minute, again with an assist from Sumaila, Abeyta roared back with a divebombing toe kick off the assist from freshman Texan Mercedes Perez for the third and final score for FRC. "Ryann has been struggling this season and even though she has been scoring goals, getting consistent opportunities for her has been tough, though we got that yesterday," Williams added. In addition to her two goalazos, Abeyta also logged five shots in the game, with goal making it into the net. Williams also highlighted the work put in by McDonnell in the win, with emphasis on a bit of advice he gave her before the game. "This young lady is another player that has not been getting a lot of chances and shots, so we had a discussion before the game and I told her she needed to take at least four shots at the net in every game," Williams said. ',She took five all together and it worked out for us." McDonnell, a graduate of Centennial High School in Las Vegas, added that she has worked hard for the past two seasons to adjust to the higher level of sport present in collegiate soccer. "Playing in college is really different and it's more competitive," McDonnell said. "It has a faster pace and although my high school team soccer like this. Working with a player like Sherifa also raises my game and makes me play to a higher level." Lassen was finally able to save face in the 81st minute as a penalty kick veered in for the one-point score for the Cougars. With the win against Lassen, Feather River still lives atop the Golden Valley Conference with a record of 5-0-2 and 11-3-3 overall. Despite the win, Williams added that the team has not played to expectations of late, due mostly to the team's grief over the loss of teammate Grace Holland. "Honestly, we have not been the same team without Grace," Williams said. "We've been walking around like zombies and doing just enough to barely get through the games." Because of that, Williams Feather RiveT'College's Sherifatu Sumaila beats Lassen College player Jordain Shedrick to the ball last week in Susanville. Photo by Maddie Musante said he quoted a part of Holland's obituary to the team at halftime, in particular the portion that spoke of her "fire" in life and on the pitch. "Every minute that Grace stepped in the field, whether it was three minutes or 80 minutes, she came with a fire," Williams said. "If we are truly serious about wanting to honor her memory we need to come out collectively with that fire, not just get by. In the second half they responded to that and performed very wll." Holland's memory was indeed honored -- for all time -- as the team retired her No. 4 jersey in a ceremony Nov. 4, prior to sophomore recognition at the final regular season game of the year against Butte. The results of that game were not available by deadline for this story. 00olden Eagles men regain momentum, 13eat Lassen College ::: Greg Knight Community College in that has all the tools to play poorly executed soccer as an grab a long-ball counterattack from last week's "man of the that position at the Division 1 collegiate level," head coach Don Williams said. "He can be one of the tops in the nation at that position. He is very receptive to the coaching that my assistant, Brad Williams, and I have been giving him." With the Eagles up by a pair, what followed in the second half was a textbook example of own-goal against Feather River slid in, courtesy of an error just outside the Cougar penalty box. In an unfortunate turn of events for FRC, Dylan Murray, a freshman defender from Portland, Australia, managed to score agoal for the Cougars at the 50th minute after keeper Zak McCarthy came out to from Lassen. As FRC defenders were chasing the Cougars to goal after being caught flat in the back, Murray attempted to pass it to McCarthy when it slotted directly into the LCC net. In the end, FRC's Oyvind Tolgensbakk saved the day in the waning minutes of the game with a goal on an assist match" against Tahoe, Brit center-mid Dom Docherty. The win gives FRC a 9-5-3 overall record and upped the Squad's record in the Golden Valley Conference to 4-1-1. The Eagles are still perched in the No. 2 spot in conference rankings, just behind Lake Tahoe's No. 1 rank in the GVC on a 5-0-1 record. i"i Sports Writer After a painful loss to Lake Tahoe last week at home, it took a week of catharsis and a heavy practice schedule for the Feather River College men's soccer team to reclaim victory on the pitch with a 3-1 away win over Lassen Susanville last Wednesday. The Golden Eagles opened in fine form to take a 2-0 lead in the first half, off goals from Gavin Gillies with an assist from Petter Knoph, and a big shot from 18 yards out by Andrew Maynard, assisted by Paul Mayes..
