Montesano 4, Tenino 1

Montesano continued its march toward the first league title in program history with a 4-1 victory over Tenino on Monday in Montesano.

The Bulldogs (9-1 overall, 8-0 1A Evergreen) benefited from a Tenino own goal in the seventh minute and – after the Beavers (5-6, 5-4) got a goal from Tyler Minerich in the 15th minute – closed the first half up 2-1 when Mateo Sanchez scored off a feed from Levi Clements in the 26th minute.

“In the first half, it was difficult to get going,” Montesano head coach Fidel Sanchez said, eluding to improved play from the Beavers. “Tenino was determined and better organized than when we previously played them.”

In the second half, Felix Romero scored off an assist from Sanchez in the 50th minute and Cristofer Tobar converted on a penalty kick in the 69th minute to secure Monte’s 4-1 victory.

Montesano had 20 shots to just four for the Beavers, with 11 shots on target.

With the victory, the Bulldogs hold a two-game lead over Eatonville for the top spot in the 1A Evergreen League.

Montesano plays at Forks at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
