CHELAN – Just days after a shutout loss to Cascade at home, the Tigers pulled together for a win over Chelan on the road.
On Tuesday, Oct. 6, the Tigers lost at home 10-0 to Cascade.
“Cascade was a tough game,” Darren Collins, head coach, said. “I think after the first goal, we got down on ourselves and it was all downhill from there. The girls did alright, but Cascade is a tough team.”
Collins said a lot of starters were out for the Cascade game and that there were a few injuries during the game. One girl went to the hospital for her knee, which luckily was just badly bruised.
“I was really impressed with our forwards because they’re not the usual and they did really well against a tough team,” junior Megan Rawley said. “I think we’ve improved over the season and we’ll continue to improve.”
Collins said the girls didn’t take the loss to heart.
“Luckily, they forgot about it, went to Chelan and won,” he said. “Chelan was a much better game.”
On Saturday, Oct. 10, Tonasket beat Chelan 2-0. Meghan Newton and Cayla Monroe scored the Tiger goals.
“Kathylea Gibson actually shot the ball, it bounced off the goal and Cayla put it in the net,” Collins said. “She was in the right spot at the right time. This game was a definite improvement over our last game against Chelan.”
As of press time, the Tigers (2-6-0, 4-7-1) had not yet played at home against Omak on Tuesday, Oct. 13. Their next game is away against Brewster on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 11 a.m.
“We beat Brewster 2-1 last time so I’m sure they’ll want revenge,” Collins said.
