Wednesday Roundup: Ocosta losses close one to Adna, 2-1

The Ocosta High School girls soccer team lost a hard-fought match 2-1 on Wednesday to the Adna Pirates in Adna.

Adna scored on a shot in the third minute after a low shot skipped along a wet turf past Ocosta keeper Devyn Martin.

Adna doubled its lead in the 11th minute when Ocosta committed an own goal.

Later in the first half, the Wildcats (1-1 overall, 0-1 league) cut the lead in half when Miki Ness fed a thru pass to Kylee Denny who then rifled a shot under the crossbar from 25 yards away to make it a 2-1 game.

Ocosta appeared to have scored the tying goal in the 70th minute, but the Wildcats were called for kicking the ball while the Adna goalie had a hand on the ball, nullifying the goal.

Martin recorded 11 saves in the loss, including stopping three breakaway attempts and blocking a rebound shot after initially making a diving save.

“We picked it up after getting down by two to a really good Adna team,” Ocosta head coach Mike King said. “The girls fought hard for every 50-50 ball and never gave up. They showed they can overcome adversity. This game will help us get better as the season progresses.”

Ocosta travels to Montesano on Monday for a game against the Bulldog JV team at noon.

WF West 1, Aberdeen 0

The Aberdeen girls soccer team lost its season opener 1-0 against WF West on Tuesday in Chehalis.

In a game mostly defined by play between the two 18-yard boxes, the Bearcats scored in the first half on a shot from distance for the only goal of the game.

Aberdeen (0-2) was able to gain more possession in the second half, but was unable to put any shots into the net in a game where temperatures dropped to 25 degrees.

“It was a very good game defensively for our girls,” Bobcats head coach Larry Fleming said. “It took a few minutes to get going but considering the field conditions, the weather, and the abbreviated preseason, I think our team played a very strong game overall.”

Fleming noted Madi Gore, Aili Scott, Logan Glanz, Emma Green and Elizabeth Martinez as having strong games for Aberdeen.

The Bobcats face Rochester at 6 p.m. on Friday at Stewart Field.

The Aberdeen JV team lost 4-0 to Adna JV on Tuesday.

Napavine’s Natalya Marcial opened the scoring with a goal in the 13th minute to put the Ravens down by a goal.

But RSB striker Ana Quintana was not going to let the Tigers ruin her Senior Night. Quintana scored on a break to tie the game at 1-1 in the first half and then gave the Ravens a 2-1 lead by scoring on a ricocheted shot.

Ravens midfielder Kiana Bale scored on a penalty kick in the second half to give RSB an insurance goal.

RSB head coach John Enslow noted key contributions of seniors Aracely Lopez, Jackie Delgado, Zaira Medina and Quintana on Senior Night.

Centralia 54, Aberdeen 53

Aberdeen lost Wednesday’s boys tennis match 54-53 against Centralia.

Though mid-winter is not the typical time for the boys prep tennis season, Bobcats head coach Dave Bruncke said his team was happy to get the opportunity to play.

“During a COVID tennis season in early February, we were very pleased to be able to get in a match,” Bruncke said. “These boys were used to playing in the heat of August and September and are getting used to the temperatures being 30-40 degrees cooler.”

Aberdeen will host Black Hills at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, weather permitting.
