Grizzlies 7, Beavers 0
Jonathan Molina scored the hat trick as Hoquiam celebrated Senior Night in style by trouncing Tenino in an Evergreen 1A League match Tuesday at Sea Breeze Oval.
The Grizzlies honored 12 seniors in pre-game festivitites. Hoquiam coach Fidel Sanchez was able to finish the game with an all-senior lineup on the field — a true rarity in soccer.
Molina scored in the 18th, 45th and 46th minutes. Israel Fernandez added two goals, in the 16th and 57th minutes.
Osiel Rivera opened the scoring with a header in the eighth minute. And Keon Dale, one of the seniors honored, scored his first-ever career goal by converting a rebound in the 35th minutes.
“They played relaxed,” Sanchez said. “They found the open space, attacked them and found the gaps in their defense.”
Roberto Moreno scored twice as the Grizzlies took the JV match, 4-0.
Hoquiam (13-1, 13-2) faces a league title showdown at Rochester on Thursday.
Bobcats 8, Cougars 2
OLYMPIA — Mo Donovan and Kiana Dixon each homered as Aberdeen trounced Capital in an Evergreen 2A Conference game Tuesday at Olympia.
Dixon blasted a two-run homer in a four-run fourth inning. Donovan connected with a runner aboard in the fifth.
Donovan had three hits, while Grace Utto-Galarneau doubled twice and singled.
“Our middle of the lineup was outstanding,” Bobcat coach Jeff Timmons said. “They kind of struggled the first time around, but the second time around, we went on a big barrage in the fourth inning.”
Donovan scattered six hits to collect the victory.
The Bobcats (9-6, 9-7) host Black Hills on Thursday.

Rangers 6, Loggerettes 1
QUILCENE — Striking out 16 times, Wishkah fell to Quilcene in a non-league game Tuesday at Quilcene.
The Loggerettes mustered only three hits.
“We couldn’t make contact and we left quite a few people on base,” Wishkah coach Tove Reibel said. “It was definitely not a hitting game for us.”
The Loggerettes (6-3) host Muckleshoot on Thursday.

WESTPORT — An eight-run sixth inning lifted Ocosta over the Aberdeen junior varsity in non-league play Tuesday at Westport.
Wildcat coach Jason Barnum cited pitcher Lexie Schmeling, who dramatically improved her control.
“Today she threw strikes and allowed them to hit the ball,” Barnum said. “And we made plays in the field.”
Comets 15, Hyaks 8
NASELLE — Unable to capitalize on free passes, Pacific League champion North Beach fell to Naselle in a league contest Monday at Naselle.
The Hyaks (3-1, 11-4) drew no fewer than 17 walks, but were unable to deliver key hits that could have produced big innings.
“We just played flat, kind of listless,” North Beach coach Maynard Reed said. “We’d get on base with two outs. And (Naselle) played really well.”
He cited Madi Ivey for pitching in the absence of Cora Pope, who was ill.
The Hyaks visit Taholah today.
Ocosta 5, Elks 4
AMANDA PARK — Leeroy Rindlisbacher singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning as Ocosta outlasted Lake Quinault in a non-league game Tuesday at Amanda Park.
Caleb Tackett drew a one-out walk in the 10th, stole second, advanced to third on an infield out and scored on Rindlisbacher’s single up the middle.
The Elks loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the 10th, but Kurt Bambauer — the third Wildcat pitcher — worked his way out of the jam.
The Wilecats (10-6) somehow prevailed despite striking out 18 times in the first eight innings.
“They made as many plays on us in the last two innings as they did in the first eight,” Wildcat coach Jason Quinby said incredulously. “We had four hits, made five errors, struck out 18 times and still won. The big thing for us was pitching.”
Tackett homered in the fifth inning for the Wildcats. Dalton Lines, Santos Venegas and Kobe Kalama had two hits each for the Elks.
“Even though we lost the game, I thought we played well,” said Quinault coach Keith Samplawski. “We had a good game compared to the last time we played them (a decisive Ocosta win).”
The Wildcats visit Ilwaco this afternoon.

Elks 18, Owls 6
AMANDA PARK — A 12-run first inning lifted Lake Quinault past Mary M. Knight in a non-league contest shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule.
This contest was the second game of a three-team doubleheader at Amanda Park.
Quinault starter Jeffrey Diggle was the winning pitcher and helped his own cause with two hits. Richy Carlile added two hits for the Elks (8-5).
Elk coach Keith Samplawski was generally pleased with his team’s play for the afternoon.
“We used eight pitchers (in the two games) and I didn’t know we had eight pitchers,” he said.
Quinault eighth-grader Eduardo Ochoa was cited for fine play.
The Elks journey to Onalaska on Thursday.

Four players scored in the 50s as Hoquiam beat short-handed Kalama in a Southwest Washington 1A League match Tuesday at Highland Golf Course.
The Grizzlies finished at 217. Kalama was unable to field a complete team.
Hoquiam’s Kaitlyn Mason was the medalist with a 52. Grizzly coach Patty Sundstrom commended Megan Gibson and Kathleen Yi for significant improvement.
“I thought we played a lot better than we’ve played our last two outings,” Sundstrom said. “We got a little taste of humility the last two outings, but we got back to our average today. For the most part, I thought our girls played really well.”
The Grizzlies host Montesano on Thursday.
Kalama — Maggie West 72, Hayley Reuter 72, Taylor Beck 77.
Hoquiam (217) — Katie Skolrood 57, Kaitlyn Mason 52, Brittany Nations 66, Kelci Parker 67, Megan Gibson 54, Kathleen Yi 54.

ELMA — Montesano struggled a bit on its home course while perennial golf power Woodland cruised anyway in this Southwest Washington 1A League match at Oaksridge Golf Course on Tuesday.
The Beavers’ Sesca Jouwsma and Faith Udy shared medalist honors with a 47 each. Kaelyn Walker led Montesano with a 51.
“We weren’t at our best today as a team, but it wasn’t going to matter against a top-notch Woodland team that finished fifth at state last year at the 2A level,” Montesano head coach Lloyd Aldrich said.
On Thursday, Montesano takes on Hoquiam at Highland G.C.
Woodland (199) — Sesca Jouwsma 47, Faith Udy 47, Sarah Netland 56, Kaitlynn Troyer 52, Rachel Ditzlove 53, Kayla Moody 70.
