NWPrepsNow: LC bests U-Hi in girls soccer

Lewis and Clark moves on, but the soccer season has ended for the University and Rogers girls

Bekah Reason and Grace Ellis scored 60 seconds apart for LC (10-6) early in the second half to give the Tigers the edge in a 3-2 4A victory over U-Hi (7-5-1) at Albi Stadium that eliminated the Titans. Reason converted off a corner kick and Ellis knocked in her own rebound.

After Carolyn Moravec’s volley off the crossbar on a feed from Reason at the 21-minute mark gave LC the early lead, U-Hi keeper Raelee Rowland kept the Tigers at bay until that early second-half burst. LC got off 12 shots in the first half.

The Titans battled back with goals by Julia Adair at 59 minutes on a rebound of her initial shot off the crossbar and a long-range shot by Kendall Bastine over Rowland’s head in the final minute but couldn’t get the equalizer.

LC travels to Mid-Columbia Conference No. 1 seed Hanford on Wednesday in the double-elimination portion of the 4A regional tournament. Mead (14-1-1) plays Walla Walla (4-11), a 2-1 winner over Pasco on Monday, at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Albi

3A: Klarissa Barajas and Kirren Gay scored a pair of first-half goals and freshman Triniinity Demand collected a hat trick in the second half to lead Kennewick (2-13) to an 11-0 victory over Rogers (0-13) in the opening round of the MCC-GSL Bi-District tournament at Lampson Field in Kennewick.

Keeper Abigail Harmison did her best to keep the Pirates in the match against a barrage of Kennewick shots. Rogers’ season ended.

Kennewick will play North Central (5-9) in Spokane while Shadle Park (4-10) will meet Kamiakin at Lampson Field in Kennewick, both at 5 p.m. Wednesday, in another pair of loser-out games.
