COEUR d’ALENE — The visiting Knights scored three unassisted goals in the first half to hold off the Cardinals in the Northwest Athletic Conference opener for both at Eisenwinter Field.

NIC (2-3-1) travels to Blue Mountain of Pendleton, Ore., on Sept. 20.

Wenatchee Valley is 2-1-1.

First half — 1, WVCC, Luis Rodriguez (unassisted), 13:10. 2, WVCC, Daniel Reyes (unassisted), 27:54. 3, WVCC, Danny Sandoval (unassisted), 32:01. Second half — none.
