Prep roundup: Skyview soccer continues to roll
Storm beat Evergreen in eighth consecutive shutout
Tuesday, October 25, 2011
The Skyview girls soccer clinched the Class 4A Greater St. Helens League title last week but the Storm reached another milestone with their victory Tuesday night.
With a 2-0 win over Evergreen, the Storm completed an undefeated league season. The Storm, 10-0-2 in league play, have also shut out their opponents in their last eight matches.
Goalkeeper Hannah Johnson had two saves Tuesday as Skyview’s defenders kept the ball out of the danger zone.
Sheaffer Skadsen had a goal and an assist. Mallory Nickles also scored for the Storm.
Skyview will host a bi-district playoff game at Kiggins Bowl on Nov. 5 for a berth to the 4A state tournament.
Mountain View 1, Hudson’s Bay 1 — The Thunder’s tie with the Eagles moves Mountain View into a fourth-place tie with Kelso.
Mountain View finishes its regular season Thursday against Columbia River at Kiggins Bowl. If Mountain View wins Thursday’s match — the Thunder claim the 3A GSHL’s No. 3 seed into the bi-districts playoffs, and River will play Kelso next Tuesday for the fourth and final berth in the bi-district playoffs.
However, if River beats Mountain View or ties, the Chieftains take the No. 3 seed, and Mountain View faces Kelso in an elimination match next Tuesday.
Battle Ground 4, Heritage 0 — Allison Sprecher and Lauren Uhl scored goals for the Tigers, who moved ahead of idle Union in the race for the third and final berth to the bi-district playoffs.
Battle Ground (4-5-2) leads Union (4-6-1) by a point. The Tigers finish the season Thursday against second-place Evergreen, while Union faces last-place Heritage. Battle Ground will clinch the playoff spot with a win or a Union loss. But a Union win and a Battle Ground loss gives the berth to the Titans.
Mark Morris 2, Washougal 0 — Katie Wright had six saves for the Panthers, but Mark Morris still moved into a first-place tie with Hockinson.
Hockinson, which was idle Tuesday, ends the season against last-place R.A. Long. If the Hawks win that match, they will claim a share of the 2A GSHL title and the No. 1 seed into the district playoffs. Win or loss Thursday, Hockinson will host a district playoff Saturday at District Stadium in Battle Ground.
King’s Way Christian 4, La Center 3 — Harper Christian had a goal and two assists, and Heidi Fronk had a goal and an assist as King’s Way notched its first-ever win over La Center.
La Center’s playoff standing was not impacted by the loss. The Wildcats will head to the district playoffs as the Trico League’s No. 2 seed.
Skyview 3, Evergreen 0 — Taylor Barrus had 10 kills, eight aces and seven digs and Jen Jakubek added six digs and three aces as Skyview clinched another outright league title.
Heritage 3, Battle Ground 0 — Emily Myers had eight kills and three blocks and Kristine Madsen added seven kills and 17 assists as Heritage clinched the No. 3 seed to next week’s bi-district tournament in Kent.
The Timberwolves will need to win a play-in match against the No. 10 team from the South Puget Sound League to enter the 16-team, double-elimination bracket at Kent.
Prairie 3, Mountain View 0 — Jessica McDonald had 13 kills and two aces, and Johna McEllrath had eight kills and a block as Prairie clinched the outright 3A GSHL title. Prairie improved to 11-0 on the season in leagu play.
Kelso 3, Hudson’s Bay 0 — Hudson’s Bay lost to the Hilanders, but remained alive in the hunt for a district playoff berth.
If the Eagles beat winless Fort Vancouver on Thursday and Mountain View loses to second-place Camas, then Bay and Mountain View will meet at 11 a.m. Saturday at Columbia River High School in a tiebreaker match to earn the No. 5 seed to next week’s district tournament.
Kalama 3, Stevenson 2 — Stevenson lost a tough match, but still earned a berth to district tournament when White Salmon beat La Center in four.
