Two daughters, two national tourneys

Scott Smith roots from afar

Bellevue's Scott A. Smith is one proud papa this weekend.

He has two daughters playing in separate national collegiate women's soccer tournaments. Smith won't attend, but he'll root hard from home.

One daughter, Danielle Smith, 21, is competing for the University of Vermont women's club soccer team in a national club tournament at Phoenix, Ariz.

A defender, Smith was the co-captain, first-team All-League selection and Most Inspirational player as a senior for the 2006 Wood River High School team, which went 17-3-1.

Meanwhile, Tahlia O'Loughlin, 20, of Boise, is a junior forward for the top-ranked Concordia (Ore.) University Cavaliers (18-0-2) at the 27th annual NAIA Women's Soccer National Championship played in Kansas City, Mo.

A daughter of Scott Smith and Holly O'Loughlin, the 5-7 Tahlia O'Loughlin from Borah High School scored four goals with four assists for the Cavaliers in 20 games this season. She played club soccer for Les Bois United and was a two-time all-conference player for Walla Walla (Wash.) Community.

Concordia outscored its opponents 53-4 (16 shutouts). The Cavaliers play Simon Fraser of British Columbia, Canada (11-4-3) in the first round of the 32-team meet Saturday, Nov. 20.
