As we enter the final two weeks of the prep girls soccer and volleyball seasons, we take a look at all the Twin Harbors high school sports action from Tuesday.
GIRLS PREP SOCCER
Montesano 4, Eatonville 0
Montesano remained undefeated in league play by blanking the Eatonville Cruisers 4-0 on Tuesday in Eatonville.
Playing at Eatonville for the first time in a 1A Evergreen League game, Montesano (11-1 overall, 6-0 1A Evergreen) got another big game from sophomore midfielder Mikayla Stanfield, who scored three goals in the contest for her third hat trick in the past four games.
Stanfield scored in the 13th minute, scored on an assist from senior midfielder Paige Lisherness in the 24th minute, then netted her third goal of the game off an assists from senior midfielder/forward Jaiden Morrison in the 80th minute.
Morrison also scored for Monte, giving the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead when she scored off a feed from junior midfielder Jaiden King in the 44th minute.
Monte head coach Fidel Sanchez added Morrison has been assisting on many of Stanfield’s goals during this recent hat-trick stretch and said he likes what he is seeing from the duo.
“That’s a great connection we got going on with Mikayla and Jaiden,” he said. “Jaiden has been doing a great job assisting on a lot of goals Mikayla has been scoring.”
Dealing with an unfamiliar, all-grass field and an abnormal 3:30 p.m. start time didn’t seem to bother the Bulldogs too much as they controlled Eatonville (1-9-2, 1-5) throughout the contest.
“It’s kind of unusual to play a 3:30 game. … The grass field was pretty slow. So there were a lot of different factors going into the game,” Sanchez said. “But nonetheless the girls came out and got goals and we were able to play our game as much as we could.”
Monte outshot Eatonville 10-2, with seven Monte shots on goal to just one for the Cruisers.
The Bulldogs also held a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks.
Montesano — which is ranked second in the latest WIAA RPI poll behind Deer Park — has three games left on the schedule with two of them being league games.
With Elma’s 2-1 victory over Tenino on Tuesday, the Bulldogs will host Elma in a matchup with league title and seeding implications.
Monte leads their East County rivals by a game in the league standings and holds a plus-four goal differential over Elma, meaning for Elma to take the league’s top seed away from the Bulldogs, the Eagles would have to win by five goals.
“I don’t see that happening,” said Sanchez, whose team has allowed just one goal in league play this season. “It’s good to have a 4-0 goal advantage. That goal differential is way too big for them to take the top seed from us.”
Hoquiam 1, Seton Catholic 1
A last-minute goal helped Hoquiam snap an eight-game losing streak as the Grizzlies earned a 1-1 tie against Seton Catholic on Tuesday in Vancouver.
Seton Catholic scored in the 48th minute on a set-piece goal that came off a corner kick.
But Hoquiam (1-9-1, 0-5 1A Evergreen) kept fighting and found the equalizer when when defender Briana Herrera sent a well-placed through ball to forward Maci Winkelman.
Winkelman placed a chip shot over the Seton Catholic keeper and into the back of the net to knot the game up at 1-1 in the final minute of the game.
“Our new defensive line held it down pretty good tonight,” Hoquiam head coach John Johnson said. “We have been moving players around throughout the season to really try to see who was going to have good chemistry together on the field and, as of the last couple of games, it seems we have found it.”
The tie breaks Hoquiam’s eight-game losing streak that dates back to Sept. 9 when the Grizzlies defeated Raymond-South Bend 4-1 for their only victory of the season.
Hoquiam hosts Eatonville in a league matchup at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Black Hills 3, Aberdeen 0
Aberdeen lost its third straight league game in a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Black Hills Wolves on Tuesday in Aberdeen.
Without senior starting goal keeper Char Gutierrez — who missed her third straight game due to concussion protocols — the Bobcats (7-7, 4-7 2A Evergreen) defense gave up multiple scoring chances, which Black Hills (8-4, 7-3) took advantage of for two goals in the second half.
The Wolves took a 1-0 lead in the first half when an Aberdeen clearance went off a Bobcats player for an own goal nine minutes into the game.
Aberdeen’s best chance to score came when midfielder Jaylynn Phimmasone — who was playing for the first time in three games due to an ankle injury — drove a free kick that rang off the crossbar in the 20th minute.
“The girls gave a lot of effort but gave the ball away too easily and poor communication were the factors that cost us the match,” Aberdeen head coach Larry Fleming said.
Dominique Trevino played her first full game in the net and Annie Troeh, Scotlyn Lecomte and Aman Cheema were cited by Fleming for playing well on Tuesday.
Aberdeen closes out its regular season when it hosts WF West at 7 p.m. Tuesday, with a possibility of the league’s fourth and final playoff spot on the line.
Montesano 3, Eatonville 0
Montesano remained unbeaten in league play with a 25-12, 25-19 and 25-14 victory on Tuesday in Eatonville.
Karissa Otterstetter had 23 assists to lead the Bulldogs (10-4, 7-0 1A Evergreen).
Ashlyn Devereaux and Landree Dohrman had 12 and eight kills, respectively, while Addie Winter added two blocks for Montesano.
Monte head coach Pat Pace commended senior Olivia Young “for her outstanding serving” on Tuesday.
Montesano hosts Elma at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Hoquiam 3, Seton Catholic 0
Hoquiam moved to 8-2 overall this season with a 25-22, 25-17 and 25-11 non-league victory over Seton Catholic on Tuesday in Hoquiam.
The Grizzlies (8-2, 6-1) were led by senior Kamryn Krohn (12 digs, 5 kills, 15-15 service, 4 aces), who had a solid all-around game.
Carron Blood (11-11 service, 5 aces), Graci Bonney-Spradlin (14 digs), Ella Folkers (21 assists) and Kristina Goulet (8 kills, 4 solo blocks) were also noted by Grizzlies head coach Heather Bozich for contributing to the victory.
“Maybe not our best night offensively, but we made up for it defensively,” Bozich said.
Hoquiam faced Eatonville at 7 p.m. Thursday in Hoquiam.
Elma 3, Tenino 1
Elma solidified third place in the 1A Evergreen League with a 25-20, 25-16, 14-26 and 25-14 victory on Tuesday in Elma.
Aubrey Moore (22 assists, 12 digs), Aalihya Ostrom (11 aces, 7 kills) and Torrey Thompson (5 aces, 8 kills) led the way for the Eagles (5-7, 4-3), which moved to two games ahead of Eatonville for the league’s third spot.
The Eagles JV team won in three games with the Elma C-team splitting two games with Tenino.
Raymond 3, Forks 0
Raymond made a statement with a straight-set victory over Forks on Tuesday in Forks.
Raymond (10-1, 8-0 2B Pacific) dominated the 2B Pacific League’s second-place team in the Spartans (7-3, 7-2), winning 25-14, 25-13 and 25-17.
Karsyn Freeman (10 kills, 8 digs, 2 aces), Kyra Gardner (7 kills, 16 digs), Alia Enlow (4 kills, 2 blocks) and Caton Swogger (4 kills, 2 blocks), and Kyndal Koski (25 digs) all had big games for the Seagulls.
“We did a good job of keeping the pressure on them by serving tough and always getting a swing,” Raymond head coach Bob Swogger said. “Overall, it was a good all around effort.”
North Beach 3, Chief Leschi 2
North Beach had 34 kills as a team en route to a 25-13, 19-24, 25-21, 21-25 and 15-8 victory over Chief Leschi on Tuesday in North Beach.
Senior Mady Eang led the Hyaks with 30 assists and 96% from the service line.
Junior Kaci Osborne Hansen had a season high 13 kills followed by senior Maryah Wisner (7 kills, 4 blocks).
North Beach (4-4, 2-4 2B Pacific) served 91% as a team.
“I give credit to Chief Leschi for battling every game, it was an exciting night of volleyball,” North Beach head coach Jessica Preisinger said. “But the girls pulled through, they never let up.”
