Alonzo Flores scored the winning goal in the second half as Hockinson beat Woodland 2-1 on Tuesday to finish third in the 2A Greater St. Helens League.

The Hawks (9-5-2-0) entered Tuesday’s final day of league matches in third with a one-point lead over idle Ridgefield and two points ahead of Hudson’s Bay.

Tuesday’s win means Hockinson will play a first-round district playoff match Saturday at Tumwater, the No. 2 seed from the Evergreen Conference.

Osvaldo Lopez scored the winning goal as Hudson’s Bay beat Fort Vancouver 1-0 to leapfrog Ridgefield into fourth place. The Eagles will face EvCo champ W.F. West on Saturday in Chehalis.

Fifth-place Ridgefield will host Aberdeen in a district play-in match on Thursday with the winner facing 2A GSHL champ Columbia River on Saturday.

Columbia River extended its cushion atop the league Tuesday with a 2-0 win over R.A. Long.

Ryland Perron had a goal and an assist as the Rapids (15-0-0-1) finished seven points clear of the second-place Lumberjacks. Both teams will host district playoff matches on Saturday.
