Soccer team beats Tigers to close league play

Sebastian Moraga
Staff writer

The Cashmere Bulldogs' soccer team completed another perfect regular season with a 10-0 victory against Chelan and then a 3-0 road win against Tonasket.

Lauren Johnson had two goals, Tianna Helm had one, and Tessa McCormick had two assists in the win against the Tigers.

Cashmere finished out the regular season with a perfect 14-0 record in league and will host a playoff game 1 p.m. this Saturday against a still undetermined foe.

Just like during their home match against the improved Tigers, Cashmere tried hard and often to break past the Tonasket goalkeeper, but missed on the final touch several times. Nevertheless, Cashmere dominated the actions, outshooting the Tigers 22-3.

Cashmere had seven corner kicks to Tonasket's two, and the Tigers' goalie had 11 saves, to Cashmere's Zelia Zahir's two.

The long bus ride to Tigertown led to a slow start for the Bulldogs, Cashmere Head Coach Dennis Tronson wrote in an email. Still, the Bulldogs took a 2-0 lead into the halftime break, thanks to a 10-yarder by Helm and a corner kick-goal by Johnson off the Tigers' near post.

In the second half, Tronson wrote, play opened up, with the Bulldogs coming close to tearing the game wide open several times. In the 60th minute, Cashmere found the back of the net for the final time this regular season, as Johnson took a centering pass from McCormick, then buried a 30-yarder past the Tigers' keeper.

Earlier in the week, Cashmere laid a 10-spot on Chelan, winning their home finale in a shutout against a vastly overmatched Chelan squad, 10-nil. Although the game was the last home match of the regular season, it was not Senior Night, which the Bulldogs had celebrated weeks earlier, prior to some players' trip to Kentucky for FFA nationals.

Now with their FFA members back in the fold, Cashmere readies for playoffs. If the Bulldogs win this Saturday's game, it gets home field advantage in the first round of state. Tronson wrote the first-round match would occur the evening of either Nov. 12 or 13.
