Tianna Helm scored five times to help Cashmere trounce the Brewster Bears 9-0 in the soccer crossover game Nov. 9.

Helm, who entered the game as the defending 2012 player of the year for the Caribou Trail League, closed out the weekend as the newly-crowned player of the year for 2013, as well. She scored her five goals in about 60 minutes of play, along with two assists.

"Not a bad night," head coach Dennis Tronson quipped.

Lauren Johnson had a hat trick and Tessa McCormick had the game's last tally. Brewster had really focused on limiting McCormick's touches, Tronson added.

The win against Brewster improved Cashmere's record to 16-1.

Cashmere then faced South Central Athletic Conference East Division champs Connell Nov. 12 at home in the first round of state. It was the eighth consecutive state appearance for the Bulldogs.

A win against Connell meant the Bulldogs play Saturday, either at Newport or at Yakima's LaSalle.

Results of the Connell game weren't available prior to press time.

"It'll be a good match, they are well-coached," Tronson said of Connell. "They always come in very defensively, they are going to try to slow us down offensively."

Against Brewster, the lopsided play served as a comeback of sorts for two players who had been nursing injuries. Dani Morseman (concussion) and Cassidy Boyd (knee) both finally saw limited action and should be OK for the rest of the postseason.

Both cases were especially encouraging: Tronson wrote in an email that Morseman got an assist, and Boyd played for the first time since the second match of the season. Karly Thies' muscle pull is also starting to heal, Tronson said in an interview.

Cashmere's 9-0 win means the gate defended by starter Zelia Zahir and backup Aiden Darlington completed seven full matches without giving up a goal.

With the score at 9-0, Darlington stopped a Brewster penalty kick to preserve the streak.

"That really lifted the team, because all the starters were out at that point," Tronson said of the save. "It was pretty exciting to preserve the shutout, I know Zelia was pretty excited."

It was the 10th shutout of the season for the Bulldogs. In 2004, Cashmere had 18 shutouts and an early exit from state, at the hands of Connell.

"Soccer is cruel," Tronson said, adding that this Tuesday's matchup would be the latest chapter in a long history between Bulldogs and Eagles.

Cashmere beat Connell last year and lost in the state quarterfinals at home in 2009

Kickoff time for a possible Saturday game has not been decided yet, Tronson said.
