Prep Roundup: Ocosta blanked by Onalaska in league opener

Also: Hoquiam drops two straight golf matches

Ocosta lost its league opener on the pitch while Hoquiam suffered losses on the golf course as we take a look at Wednesday’s prep sports on the Harbor.


Onalaska 2, Ocosta 0

Ocosta’s league opener didn’t turn out as planned after a 2-0 loss to Onalaska on Wednesday at Onalaska High School.

The Wildcats (3-2 overall, 0-1 2B Central-Pacific) played even with the Loggers (3-2, 1-0) throughout much of the first half, but an unsecured rebound led to an Onalaska goal for a 1-0 Loggers lead at halftime.

The game remained 1-0 until the final play of the second half, when the Loggers scored to secure the 2-0 victory.

The Wildcats struggled to link passes against the speedy Loggers and were outshot by Onalaska 21-16. It was the first time Ocosta was outshot this season.

“Onalaska took us out of our game with the early goal. We had several scoring opportunities but their goalkeeper made some great saves,” said Ocosta head coach Mike King, who noted his team has no seniors and just three juniors. “It’s early in the season, we’re very young and we’ll build from here on out.”

Ocosta plays at Auburn Adventist at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

Ocosta 0 0 – 0

Onalaska 1 1 – 2


Seton Catholic 174, Hoquiam 218

Hoquiam battled Seton Catholic and some early fall weather in a 174-218 loss on Tuesday at Highland Golf Course in Cosmopolis.

“Avoided the rain but still presented a challenging day for the kids with a wind that was blowing across most of the holes that hadn’t been present at all before this afternoon,” Hoquiam head coach Terry Helland said.

Riley Montoure led the Grizzlies with a 44 for his 9-hole round.

Seton Catholic (174) – Jacob Parker 42, Mason Glassmire 43, Zach Catherall 44, Caden Haapala 45.

Hoquiam (218) – Riley Montoure 44, Oliver Costales 56, Konnor Stigall 59, Kai Villareal 59.

Kalama 203, Hoquiam 207

Playing on a course for the first time, Hoquiam dropped a match to Kalama 203-207 on Wednesday at the Longview Golf Course in Longview.

The Grizzlies were led by Riley Montoure, who won Medalist honors with a score of 46, and Konnor Stigall, who shot a season-low 52 while playing on the Longview course for the first time.

“Really pleasant afternoon in perfect weather for golf,” Hoquiam head coach Terry Helland said. “New course for the kids that presents a lot of elevation changes and doglegs that makes for a challenge to score.”

Kalama (203) – Cooper Hahn 48, Pierce Hull 48, Nolan Scott 53, Hudson Moon 54.

Hoquiam (207) – Riley Montoure 46, Oliver Costales 50, Konnor Stigall 52, Tommy Catron 59.


La Center 3, Montesano 0

Montesano struggled against the buzzsaw that is the La Center Wildcats in a straight-set loss on Tuesday at La Center High School.

Montesano (1-5) lost 25-15, 25-10 and 25-16 as La Center (6-0) remained unbeaten on the year and has an 18-1 set record, only losing a game to Toutle Lake on Sept. 12.

“This was a tough match. La Center is a great team with a lot of power and we had trouble defending against it,” Montesano head coach Cindy Wecker said. “We did get more touches as far as blocking goes, but it still was not enough. We need to get our girls to stop playing timid and not be afraid to hit the ball hard. When we attacked we had great results.”

Montesano junior middle blocker Kylee Wisdom had 11 kills and went 7-of-7 from the service line to lead the Bulldogs.

Junior setter Karissa Otterstetter had 12 assists and 10 digs for a double-double and went 12-for-12 from the service line for Montesano.

Montesano plays at Castle Rock at 7 p.m. on Friday.

Montesano 15 10 16 – 0

La Center 25 25 25 – 3

Leading players: Montesano – Wisdom (11 kills, 7-7 service, assist); Hatton (6 kills, 12 digs); Otterstetter (12 assists, 10 digs, 12-12 service); Robinson (8 digs, 9-9 service, kill).
