For the second game in a row, Montesano scored early and often to defeat Hoquiam.
Jaiden Morrison scored a hat trick and Zoee Lisherness and Brooke Streeter added two goals apiece as the Bulldogs downed the Grizzlies 8-0 on Thursday in Hoquiam.
Morrison scored in the second and 11th minutes to put Monte up 2-0 followed by goals by Streeter and Anabelle Estrada to put the Bulldogs up 4-0 in the 19th minute.
Lisherness scored on an assist from Mikalya Stanfield — who assisted on Estrada’s goal earlier — late in the first half to give the Bulldogs 5-0 at halftime.
Goals by Morrison in the 43rd minute, Lisherness in the 53rd minute and Streeter on an assist from Lisherness in the 78th minute rounded out the scoring for Monte.
“The girls played a good, complete game despite the field conditions,” Monte head coach Fidel Sanchez said after playing on the soggy field at Olympic Stadium. “We were able to maintain focus and move the ball the way we wanted to.”
Montesano (2-1) outshot Hoquiam (0-3) 30-2 and outscored the Grizzlies 14-0 over the past two games.
