Ocosta’s prodigious offense was at it again on Monday, this time blasting Napavine in a 10-0 victory in Westport.
The Wildcats (4-1 overall) started the scoring on a Miki Ness goal in the 14th minute followed by Ness’ second goal — off a Kylee Denny assist — in the 30th minute.
Denny scored after stealing a pass in the 36th minute followed by a Liv Bartley goal (Abriana Ness assist) a minute later to give Ocosta a 4-0 at the half.
Abriana Ness opened the second-half scoring by knocking in a rebound off a penalty kick in the 45th minute.
Miki Ness recorded her first hat trick of the season with a goal in the 52nd minute, followed by a Maddie Schaeffer goal off a feed from Natalie Carloza in the 59th minute.
Miki Ness, Schaeffer and Maia Soderlund followed with goals in the latter stages of the game to complete the 10-0 win.
“We didn’t have really good practices on Thursday and Friday and the girls played like it in the first half hour,” Wildcats head coach Mike King said. “The girls started moving the ball better to open spaces and our trapping improved in the last 10 minutes of the first half. We saw that continue into the second half.”
Ocosta keeper Devyn Martin recorded her third and possibly easiest shutout of the season as she didn’t face a shot in the contest, largely due to the play of the defensive group in front of her.
“The defense once again came to play,” King said, citing fullbacks Maia Soderlund, Gabby Ness, Taeler Jardine and Trinity White for thwarting any Napavine offensive opportunities.
The victory was Ocosta’s second straight shutout over a varsity opponent and its third overall this season. The Wildcats have outscored its opponents 21-0 in combined in those three games.
