Cashmere rebounds from loss, thumping Lynden Christian

Photo by Sebastian Moraga
Cashmere won two of its three games this week. Victories over Okanogan and Lynden Christian bookended a loss to Quincy on the road.
Cashmere rinsed the bitter taste of a midweek road loss to Quincy by thrashing the visiting Lynden Christian Lyncs 16-2 in Peshastin Saturday.

The game wasn't nearly as easy as the score says. The Bulldogs -playing as the away team- were tied at 2 after four innings. In the top of the fifth, Tyler Chipman doubled with the bases loaded, bringing home three runs. In the top of the sixth inning, the Bulldogs scored 11 times.

Cashmere loses on PKs to Tonasket
Down two goals on the road against Tonasket, the Cashmere soccer team got to the 70th minute and simply quit.

Quit defending, that is. Encouraged by their bench the team decided to go all out and try to score at least one on the Tigers in the last 10 minutes. The Bulldogs figured, if Tonasket scores again because of this tactic, so what? They were already ahead of Cashmere.

"I made a few movements, I told the team, 'You move there, you move over there and you move over there," head coach Juan Valle said in Spanish. "'And let's go attack them.'"

For eight and a half minutes, the strategy didn't bear fruit. Then, in 90 seconds, Adrian Urrutia scored twice to tie the game. And, Valle said, there could have been more goals.

Softball splits back-to-back doubleheaders
Cashmere lost two to Nooksack and won two against Blaine in a 30-hour period last week.

The Bulldogs came close to taking at least one of the games against Nooksack on Friday, but they also came close to being shut out against the Pioneers.

Nooksack led 10-0 in the sixth inning of Game 1 before Cashmere scored five in the bottom of the sixth. An early seventh-inning run shrunk the deficit to four, but the Bulldogs got no closer.

In Game 2, Cashmere was tied at two after three innings and down 5-4 after four, before Nooksack pulled away to earn an 8-5 victory.

"Nooksack was a good team, they hit the ball well and ran the bases well," head coach Bob Van Lith wrote in an email. "We gave them a good fight. We just didn't get timely hits when we needed them."
