Ocosta drops shootout

KALAMA — Third-ranked Kalama made its final two attempts in a shootout to edge Ocosta, 1-1 (4-3), in a Central League match Monday at Kalama.

The Wildcats (3-4, 5-4) were poised for an upset when Katelynn Denny scored in the 55th minute off an assist from Adriana Huerta.

Ocosta maintained that lead into the final minute of regulation, when the Chinooks converted a breakaway.

Denny, Huerta and Teal Mitby scored for the Wildcats, while goalkeeper Kristi Raffelson blocked one Kalama attempt in the shootout. But a missed fourth attempt, when a Wildcat hit the crossbar, proved the difference.

“It was a well-played game by both sides,” Ocosta coach Mike King said.

Denny, Kjirstin Hopfer, Abriana Ness and Kianna Battiste were cited by King for fine performances.

The Wildcats remain on the road Wednesday at Toledo.
