TONASKET – The Tonasket High School soccer team won both of their first games of the season last week, first against Bridgeport and then against Oroville.

On Tuesday, Sept. 7, the Tigers won at home against Bridgeport 1-0 with senior Shelby Olma scoring the lone goal.

“I think the girls played well against Bridgeport,” Darren Collins, head coach, said. “Our passing and our combinations were looking really good; we just needed to finish better.”

Senior defensive player Megan Rawley said she thought the team did better than expected against Bridgeport.

“Bridgeport isn’t a league game but we’ve always been really well matched,” she said. “There were some rumors Bridgeport was a really good team this year, so we were all on edge.”

In their second game of the week, on Saturday, Sept. 11, the Tigers beat Oroville 2-1 at home. The Tiger goals were scored by sophomore Kelly Cruz and junior Amber Kilpatrick.

“We did not play as well as we did against Bridgeport,” Collins said. “In both games so far, the defense has done exceptionally well.”

As of press time, the Tigers had not yet played at home against Omak on Tuesday, Sept. 14 and their next game is in Omak on Thursday, Sept. 16.

“Omak is always good competition for us and we will definitely have to play at 100 percent,” Collins said.
