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.
