Thursday Prep Roundup: Aberdeen beats Centralia in soccer

Bobcats score twice in the second half to blank Centralia in soccer, 2-0


Bobcats 2, Tigers 0

CENTRALIA — Playing with the wind at its back in the second half, Aberdeen took advantage of its possession to get onto the scoreboard and blank host Centralia in this Evergreen 2A Conference match on Thursday.

Abbie Bradt scored a goal and assisted on the other to lead the Bobcats.

In the 50th minute, Bradt’s through ball allowed Tayler Housden to score the opening goal. In the 75th minute, a combination play — from Jasmine Castro to Mackenzie Arnold — allowed Bradt to score.

“I feel like we dominated possession,” AHS head coach Ryan Housden said. “Centralia had some opportunities, but our defense fought hard. When we played Tumwater, we learned a lot about ourselves. We made some changes in our style and it paid off. We attacked more, took other lines of attack into play and we played faster.”

Aberdeen won the junior varsity match, 2-1.

On Tuesday, Aberdeen (2-3, 3-7) hosts Rochester.

Wildcats 1, Indians 0

WESTPORT — Rebecca Holm’s goal in the 64th minute proved the difference as Ocosta nipped Toledo in a Central League contest Thursday at Westport.

Ocosta’s Maia Soderlund dropped a pass from the corner to Holm, whose line-drive shot from 25 yards out skipped past the goalkeeper.

The Wildcats (4-4, 6-4) outshot the Indians 10-1 in the second half.

“The first half was equal when Toledo had the wind at their back,” Ocosta coach Mike King reported. “We controlled the tempo the whole second half when we had the wind at our back.”

In a match contested primarily in the midfield area, King cited the play of midfielders Holm, Teal Mitby and Adriana Huerta and defenders Katelynn and Mercedes Denny and Electra Duus.

The Wildcats journey to Life Christian Academy for a 3:30 p.m. match on Tuesday

Montesano goalkeeper Haylee Perkinson switched out of her normal position and scored two goals in the second half with Cheyann Bartlett, Glory Grubb and Rachel Ayres each adding a marker to cap the scoring in the contest.
