Bobcats win tiebreaker

Aberdeen conquered windy conditions to edge Black Hills in a tiebreaker on Tuesday at the Sam Benn Courts.

The Evergreen 2A League rivals finished in a 3-3 deadlock, but the Bobcats owned a 7-6 advantage in sets won.

Aleeta Pratt and Katie Cournoyer won singles matches and Kylie Knodel and Rachel Tageant prevailed in doubles for the Bobcats (1-0, 1-1). The AHS doubles team of Vicky Cournoyer and Adrianna Vasquez merited an assist for winning a set in a losing effort, giving the Cats the tiebreaker advantage.

This was only the third time, including practices, that Aberdeen has played in its home court this season.

“We’ve tried to take on the mantra of no excuses, just play, and they really took that to heart,” Bobcat coach Ashley Kohlmeier said.

The Cats visit Shelton this afternoon.

MONTESANO — Jordan Daniels and Corrina Zapata used the momentum from a strong first set to win the No. 2 doubles match and give Montesano its lone match win in this non-league dual meet with Three Rivers Christian on Tuesday.

Daniels-Zapata knocked off Ali Carns-Abbie McCracken, 6-3, 7-6 (3), and had to rally from a 5-1 deficit in the second set to force a tiebreaker.

“That was a very nice win; they were dominant in the first set and (Carns-McCracken) came out with a better second set,” Montesano head coach Teresa Helland said. “We’ve had more matches than practices outside this year.”

On Thursday, Montesano is scheduled to travel to Aberdeen for a non-league match.

TENINO — Connor Parkinson needed only 13 minutes to score a hat trick as Montesano overwhelmed Tenino in an Evergreen 1A League game Tuesday at Beaver Stadium.

Parkinson finished with three goals and Luis Muro and Gage Iverson two apiece for the Bulldogs (3-1, 4-5-2). Cole Yanney, Jordan King and Hayden Klinger rounded out the scoring.

The Bulldogs led 8-0 at the half.

“They had really good passing, stretched them out and did exactly what we wanted them to do,” Monte coach Rick Denholm said of his troops.

The Bulldogs host the Toledo-Winlock combine in a non-leaguer Thursday.

Spartans 1, Grizzlies 0

FORKS — A penalty kick proved the difference as Forks stunned Hoquiam in an Evergreen 1A League contest Tuesday at Forks.

A disputed call gave the Spartans the PK in the 30th minute. Although outshooting Forks, 11-1, the Grizzlies (2-1, 6-3) were unable to equalize.

“We were on them the whole time,” said Hoquiam coach Fidel Sanchez, suppressing some strong emotions about the officiating. “We could not get a break. It was one of those games they hung on for the win. Congrats to them.”

Hoquiam’s Connor Darras was cited for his overall play.

The Grizzlies return home Thursday to face Tenino.

Warriors 8, Eagles 0

ELMA — Traditional power Seattle Christian thumped Elma in a non-league contest Tuesday at Davis Field.
