Cougars 4, Grizzlies 1

At Olympic Stadium, Hoquiam tied the match when Emma Skinner scored in traffic midway through the first half before visiting Cascade Christian ran off with this non-league win on Monday.

Skinner completed the scoring play after a Kylee Bagwell throw-in into the penalty area was booted around in traffic. Skinner got a boot onto the ball for the goal.

“We reiterated our strategy against Aberdeen — a defensive style of play,” HHS head coach Drew Grannemann said. “In the first half, we had multiple chances and their goalkeeper was a stud. In the second half, we were tired. They’re a top-five team in the state and they showed it with their fitness and stamina. We couldn’t keep up the high intensity pace.”

Hoquiam was without midfielder Maya Jump due to illness.

On Thursday, Hoquiam (3-4) hosts Forks.
