Montesano scored three goals over the first 15 minutes of the game en route to a convincing 8-0 victory over Rochester on Tuesday at Jack Rottle Field in Montesano.
In a one-sided contest, Monte (3-1 overall) spent the majority of the contest in the Warriors defensive third of the field, firing 34 shots (18 on goal) at the Rochester net.
The Bulldogs also earned nine corner kicks in the game.
Monte midfielder Vanna Prom opened the scoring on the Bulldogs’ first shot of the game, converting an assist from Sierra Birdsall in the third minute.
Midfielder Mikayla Stanfield scored on an assist from Jaiden King in the 10th minute and King assisted on a Jaiden Morrison goal in the 13th minute for a 3-0 Monte lead.
In the second half, senior midfielder Paige Lisherness scored on a shot in the 56th minute followed by Stanfield’s second goal a minute-and-a-half later.
Morrison netted her second goal in the 60th minute and Monte’s Reghann Fairbairn gave the Bulldogs two goals on consecutive shots in the 61st minute.
Monte’s Iza Cope scored the final goal of the game on a long, lobbing shot in the 79th minute to complete the 8-0 victory.
Monte head coach Fidel Sanchez liked the way his team passed the ball and found open space on the pitch.
“The team moved the ball pretty well tonight,” Sanchez said, noting his team’s one-two touch passing and ability to find open splits through the Warriors defense. “It was a good team effort and the girls played with a really good pace to the game.”
Monte hosts La Center in a rematch of last season’s 1A Division 4 championship game at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Aberdeen 0, Shelton 0 (Aberdeen wins 2-0 on penalty kicks)
Despite playing short-handed after three starters were sidelined, Aberdeen defeated Shelton in a penalty-kick shootout on Tuesday at Stewart Field in Aberdeen.
Aberdeen (6-1 overall, 3-1 2A Evergreen) and Shelton (0-4-1, 0-2) played evenly in the first half as neither keeper was significantly challenged in a physical game.
The Bobcats, which were down three starters (two due to COVID issues, one via grades), dominated the second half of play by applying pressure on the Highclimbers defense and keeping Shelton pinned in its defensive half of the field.
But Aberdeen failed to score on any of its four scoring chances in the half, and the game ended in a scoreless tie after regulation and overtime.
In the overtime period, Aberdeen’s steadfast keeper — senior Char Gutierrez — was the star of the show.
Gutierrez converted the first penalty kick of the shootout and followed that up by slamming the door on any Highclimber hopes of a victory.
The standout Bobcats goalie stopped three of four Shelton penalty kicks to put Aberdeen in position to win.
Alexis Durr also converted on a penalty kick to secure the Aberdeen victory, 2-0 on penalty kicks.
“The girls played a terrific game, stepping up their intensity and communicating more effectively, controlling the ball with a better first touch and changing the point of attack so the opponent was constantly on its heels,” Aberdeen head coach Larry Fleming said. “If we can manage to put in more quality shots on goal we are going to be tough to beat.”
Fleming noted Madi Marlow and Britt Rajcich on defense; Annie Troeh and Aman Cheema up front; and Zoe Troen at midfield for contributing in the Bobcats’ victory.
Aberdeen travels to Tumwater to take on Black Hills at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
