Two goals in the second half broke a scoreless tie in Elma’s 2-0 victory over Montesano on Wednesday in Elma.
Elma (14-0-2 overall, 14-0 1A Evergreen) completed its regular season with a spotless league record after getting two goals early in the second half against second-place Montesano.
In the 45th minute, a long throw in to the Montesano box resulted in a hand ball call against the Bulldogs.
Elma senior forward Canon Seaberg converted the penalty kick to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead.
Five minutes later, Elma earned a free kick from approximately 40 yards out. Montesano (11-4, 10-4) won the ball and played it out to Elma’s Ivan Garcia.
The Eagles senior sent an effective long pass across the goal box toward Eagles forward Manny Hernandez, who finished from 12 yards away to put Elma up 2-0.
The third-ranked Eagles outshot Montesano 23-3 (14-2 on-goal).
Montesano head coach Fidel Sanchez said the play of Bulldogs keeper Jayden McElravy was key to his team keeping the score close against the high-octane Eagles attack.
“McElravy continues to have a tremendous year in goal,” Sanchez said. “Our defense overall has improved from last year, but what a night and day difference he has made back there.”
The two teams now look ahead to the 1A District 4 Tournament which begins this weekend.
Montesano, ranked No. 20 in the current WIAA RPI poll, will host Columbia-White Salmon at noon on Saturday in the opening round of the tournament.
Elma will host Winlock in a game scheduled for 6 p.m. on Saturday.
