OROVILLE – Tonasket’s girls soccer team earned a 6-0 non-league victory at Oroville on Thursday, Oct. 11, using hat tricks by Kylie Dellinger and Christa McCormick to account for all of their scoring.

The Tigers led 4-o at the half, but could have had quite a few more if not for Oroville goalkeeper Tosca Pickering, who snuffed out at least a dozen shots on goal in the first 40 minutes. The Tigers’ scoring came mostly on point blank chances, including one sequence in which they had three consecutive corner kicks, the last of which McCormick knocked in during a goal mouth scramble.

Dellinger, Alicia Edwards, Baylie Tyus and Selena Cosino had assists for the Tigers, who improved to 6-5 overall and travel to Quincy on Saturday.

The Hornets fell to 1-9 and resume league play at Entiat on Saturday, Oct. 13.
