Montesano’s girls soccer team made a big statement and local prep golfers Michael Jump and Nolan King continued to impress on the links in Tuesday’s prep action on the Harbor.
Montesano 3, Tenino 0
If ever there was a statement made in the shortened 1A Evergreen League girls soccer season, Tuesday’s game in Tenino was it.
Montesano not only defeated defending 1A champion Tenino, it did so in convincing fashion, shutting out the Beavers.
The Bulldogs (5-1 overall) stormed out the gate, scoring twice within the first 12 minutes of the game en route to an early 2-0 lead. Bulldogs standout senior midfielder Brooke Streeter opened the scoring with a goal in the seventh minute and followed that with an assist on a goal by Vanna Prom in the 12th minute.
After halftime, Zoee Lisherness scored off a feed from Jaiden King to put Monte up 3-0 in the 51st minute.
That was more than enough for the Montesano defense, which has been spectacular since an opening-game 2-0 loss to Tenino on Feb. 9. The Bulldogs have allowed just one goal in five straight wins and have outscored opponents 28-1 during that span.
The Monte defense allowed just two shots on Tuesday, with just one of those being on goal.
The Bulldogs offense had 14 total shots, nine on goal.
With the victory, Monte takes sole possession of first place in the league.
Aberdeen 3, Rochester 0
Aberdeen senior midfielder Emma Green scored all three Bobcat goals in a shutout of host Rochester on Tuesday.
The Bobcats (5-3 overall) got on the scoreboard when Green converted Annie Troeh’s corner kick for a goal in the 26th minute.
Green then scored on a long shot with a minute left in the first half to give Aberdeen a 2-0 lead heading into the break.
After the half, Green scored off an assist from Madi Gore with 12 minutes left in the game, giving Green the hat trick.
Aberdeen out shot Rochester 21-2, with Lexi Mills (and Green as a late replacement) getting the shutout in place of Bobcatstarting keeper Char Gutierrez, who was sidelined by injury.
“Throughout the match our girls dominated possession and as the game wore on they were able to make the opponent chase and stretched their back line to create space for the attack,” Aberdeen head coach Larry Fleming said of the victory.
Aberdeen JV tied Rochester JV 1-1, with Madi Marlow scoring for the Bobcats JV team.
Elma 2, Hoquiam 0
Hoquiam 167, Elma 212
As the season moves on, Hoquiam golfer Michael Jump keeps getting better.
Jump shot a personal-best 1-under par to lead the Grizzlies to a 167-212 victory over Elma on Tuesday at Highland Golf Course.
All of Hoquiam’s top four golfers carded sub-50 9-hole rounds, led by Jump’s medalist score of 34. Noah Sudderth (42), Mick Bozich (44) and Dominic Pence (47) rounded out Hoquiam’s team total.
Elma was led by Max Olson, who shot a team-low 47 on the day.
Hoquiam (167) — Jump 34, Sudderth 42, Bozich 44, Pence 47.
Elma (212) — Olson 47, Quinton Osbun 52, Bradey Bunch 56, Wesley Murray 57.
Aberdeen 216, Black Hills 296
Led by another solid outing from Nolan King, the Aberdeen boys golf team continued its strong play this season, defeating Black Hills on Monday at Grays Harbor Country Club.
King took medalist honors Monday as the top golfer of the match with a score of 37 for his 9-hole round. He led a Bobcat team that had five of its six golfers shoot under 50 for the round.
Charlie Ancich (42), Logan Seguin (44) and Baylor Ainsworth (46) all shot under their season averages and Hunter Eisele — playing in his first varsity match — carded a personal-best round of 46.
“It might have been the weather. It might have been we are getting better at playing at Grays Harbor Country Club, but whichever the reason, we had one of our best team score totals in my tenure as head coach,” Aberdeen’s Dan Sundstrom said.
Aberdeen (216) — Nolan King 37, Logan Seguin 44, Charlie Ancich 42, Baylor Ainsworth 46, Trevon Nichols 55, Hunter Eisele 46.
Black Hills (296) — Brandon Nguyen 50, Luke Fenner 50, Max Johnson 54, Luke Verilagieri 67, Malcolm Marbachtol 75.
