Girls soccer roundup: Shutouts reign on the pitch: Elma, Montesano win; Ocosta, Hoquiam blanked


WESTPORT — Junior Brooke Goldsmith scored four goals in the first 16 minutes of the match, allowing Elma to shuffle and rest some players at the start of a long week in a 6-0 Evergreen 1A match win over Ocosta on Tuesday night.

Goldsmith scored unassisted in the second and third minutes of the match and got her hat trick with a left-footed shot to the far right post in the fifth minute. She finished her scoring night with a penalty kick conversion in the 16th minute.

Emily Kershaw and Maddie Miller each added goals in the 38th and 74th minutes for Elma (11-1), which will play four matches this week. Natalie Grant, Stacia Burbidge and Hannah Heelan had assists.

“They had to stay out and keep working, keep them in for 10 minutes and then get everyone time,” Elma head coach Chris Schumacher said. “The role players need their time in and they know they can be called upon to play at any time. We’re trying to get everyone in, mix up the lineups a bit and give those players with the most playing time rest.”

Ocosta head coach Mike King added, “We matched up with Elma’s second-half personnel better and the kids never gave up.”

King cited Mikayla Sunde and Marsha Paulson for strong play.

Today, Elma hosts Adna at 7 p.m. The Elma JV team will take on Rochester’s JV squad at 5 p.m. On Thursday, Ocosta travels to Hoquiam.

Bulldogs 7, Spartans 0

MONTESANO — Alyx Miller and Mackinzie Malizia each scored twice, with Katie Chapman, Leeann Rhoden and Taylor Birdsall each adding one marker, to lead Montesano past Forks in this Evergreen 1A match at Rottle Field.

Playing a combination of varsity and junior varsity players, the Bulldogs (8-5, 9-5) took control of this match early and never allowed Forks to gain entry into the match. Montesano led 4-0 at the half, with Elaine Denholm and Miller each getting one assist.

“It was a good opportunity to give some girls with injuries a break,” Montesano head coach Jeff Lenherr said. “The junior varsity players who came up to play did a great job. The girls did a better job tonight of building their attack and looking to play dangerous balls.”

On Thursday, Montesano hosts Rochester.

Tigers 2, Grizzlies 0

Napavine came out swinging against Hoquiam, even with the Grizzlies controlling the match, en route to an Evergreen 1A win at Olympic Stadium on Tuesday.

The Tigers scored in the 35th and 77th minutes of the match to win, holding off a second-half charge by the hosts.

“Overall, we played hard, but you could tell Napavine wanted this more,” HHS head coach Corri Schmid said. “In the second half, we controlled it, but couldn’t finish.”

Barbara Meamber was cited for all-around play.

On Thursday, Hoquiam (7-5) hosts Ocosta.
