Victories Put CV Soccer Team Into Contention
Central Valley’s 3-2 soccer victory over University didn’t count, but it was an eye-opener nonetheless.
Central Valley freshmen Raeanna Jewell and Jamie Danelo scored the goals during the Bears’ upset triumph on Wednesday.
CV has won three of four pre-season matches. None was more significant than its victory over U-Hi.
The Greater Spokane League season begins in earnest on Monday. With the victory, CV put itself in company with the league favorites. Nearly every player is back from last year’s U-Hi runnerup.
On Wednesday, CV fell behind 2-0, then rallied.
Danelo scored 17 minutes into the second half and Jewell got her second goal on an assist from sophomore Angie Foedisch with three minutes remaining to complete the comeback.
Both Valley teams open league against underdog teams. CV is at Rogers and U-Hi at Mt. Spokane.
On Wednesday, the Bears are at Gonzaga Prep, 6-1 in pre-season, and the Titans host Shadle Park.
CV-U-Hi volleyball teams meet
Central Valley is approaching last year’s Greater Spokane League volleyball win total. University has already surpassed last season.
The two teams meet tonight at Central Valley in a match important to both.
Winners of three out of their last four matches, the Bears (3-4) share fifth place in league. A win would assure a share of sixth place at the mid-point of the season.
Rikki Jackson has led the team in kills practically every outing and in digs and blocks most matches.
U-Hi, winless a year ago, already has two victories this season.
The Titans (2-6) have been led in kills by Jen Madsen and in digs by Madsen and Kristina McAuley. Setter Crissa Poole has averaged nearly 30 assists per outing.
They could move into playoff contention with a win.
