Aberdeen’s boys soccer team was shutout by Centralia as we review your prep sports on the Harbor.


Centralia 1, Aberdeen 0

Despite having plenty of opportunities, Aberdeen failed to score in a 1-0 shutout loss to Centralia on Friday in Centralia.

The Bobcats (3-5, 2-4 2A Evergreen) trailed early in the game after Centralia (4-3, 3-3) scored on a breakaway in the 15th minute.

Aberdeen outshot the Tigers “by a substantial margin,” according to Bobcats head coach Larry Fleming, but “didn’t hit many good shots on goal.”

Aberdeen continued to apply pressure into Centralia’s defensive third throughout the second half, but “were less than technical” with their shot attempts, Fleming said.

“Outstanding effort and a terrific no-quit attitude by the whole squad, but just not enough quality in the final third,” said Fleming, who commended the effort of Marc Avila and Gibran Garcia. “We will use this break to work on our ball control and try to turn things around in the second half of the season.”

Aberdeen’s JV squad won 7-0 on Friday, with Trino Villar recording a hat trick and Spencer Hill, Ricky Granados, Ethan Parris and Josh Alcala scoring a goal each.

Aberdeen will take Spring Break off and return to the pitch against Prairie at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9 at Prairie High School.

Aberdeen 0 0 – 0

Lightning causes premature end to league meet in Hoquiam

Lightning strikes in the area caused a premature cancellation of a 1A/2B/1B league track and field meet in Hoquiam on Thursday.

After the girls 4×100-meter relay race was completed, coaches got together and made the decision to cancel the remainder of the meet due to safety concerns.

“Several lightning flashes were in the area, followed immediately by tremendous thunder,” North Beach head coach Peter Fry said. “After multiple lightning flashes, coaches agreed it was wise to stop the meet and call it a night.”

Notable performances included North Beach’s Elka Cox winning the girls 100 hurdles (18.3) and cleared a personal-best 4-foot-10 to win the high jump.

Hoquiam senior Jane Roloff won the 1600 with a personal-best of 5:01.6 while teammate Katlyn Brodhead PR’d in the 100 with a time of 13.4, just edging Montesano junior Hailey McElroy (13.4) in a photo-finish.

Brodhead also PR’d in the long jump with a mark of 13-1, but that was three inches short of event winner Shirleymae Stafford of Taholah (13-4).

Hoquiam sophomore Sydney Gordon won the shot put with a mark of 33-4 and Montesano senior Elizabeth York, who missed competing in the fall and winter seasons after suffering a knee injury in the summer, won the discus with a throw of 84-8.

Montesano’s Alayna Olson won the triple jump with a leap of 31-2.5.

North Beach’s 4×100 relay team of Macenzie Osborne-Hansen, Cox, Vyolet Dodson and Katana Copoeman won with a time of 57.5.

Several PRs were broke in the weather-shortened boys competition.

Monte sophomore Ashton McKinney won the 100 with a personal-record time of 11-7, while junior teammate Shaun Straka won the shot put with a heave of 39-10, a personal-best mark.

Pe Ell’s Calan McCarty won the long jump (16-6) and North Beach junior Aiden Boatwright took the triple jump (29-9.5), both personal-bests.

Monte’s Gabe Bodwell won the javelin (130-9), Pe Ell’s Carter Phelps won the 110 hurdles (16.0) and Monte sophomore Benny Anderson crossed the line first in the 1600 (4:56.8).

North Beach’s 4×100 relay team of Wyeland Lomedico, Noah Aquino, Carter Joslin and Tyrell Hovland won the only boys relay race of the day with a time of 47.0.
