YELM - Even though the 3-0 final score wouldn't seem to show it, both coaches agreed that Capital's Class 3A Western Cascade Conference girls soccer victory over Yelm was a close fight.
"It could have been much closer," Capital coach Devin Proctor said. "We were 2-1 (for our league record) and Yelm was 3-0 so it was important for us to come out at Yelm and get the win. Yelm is a tough team."
"I thought it was a well played game," Yelm coach Shelley O'Dell-Banyai said. "I felt like the score didn't reflect the way the game was played. Tori Blake played really nice outside-midfielder making a lot or runs and nice crosses. Ashley DeNio played really hard in the center-midfielder."
"Libby stone came through in goal," Proctor said of the Cougars goalkeeper.
Mikaela Kox, Kari Flaatrud and Cecil Flores scored for Capital.
Shelton 4, Lakes 1
Kassi Profitt scored three goals as Shelton overpowered Lakes in a WCC matchup.
"We did some really good things," Shelton coach Brett Bartlett said. "We didn't finish as well as I would have liked. But we stretched the ball out really well. We had a lot of shots that missed just wide. It was a good game. Lakes is a good strong physical team. They have some good size and speed up front they're dangerous."
Profitt found the back of the net first for the Highclimbers in the fifth minute. Kelsea Huston quickly followed five minutes later.
Profitt added two more in the second half.
"We had really great play out of Taylor Robecker at the center-midfielder position," Bartlett said. "And we had really good combination play out of our forwards, passing the ball well together and creating opportunities."
Zoe Ostrander scored the Lancers' goal.
Chehalis 2, Hoquiam 0
Leesha King scored twice, and Chehalis goalkeepers Rachel Hunt and Hillary Tak combined for the shutout.
"We outplayed them," Chehalis coach Tino Sanchez said. "They are a good, young team. We enjoy playing them, and our defense did really well. We kept them out of the game."
