It was as fitting a time as ever for Shalece Easley to notch her first goal of the season.
With three minutes left and the score tied, the Columbia River striker found the back of the net to lift the Chieftains to a 3-2 win over R.A. Long on Thursday night.
Easley, who helped lead River to the state championship game as a sophomore last season, provided the heroics as the Chieftains brace themselves for what looks to be a competitive 2A Greater St. Helens League play.
