Grizzlies 3, Beavers 2
TENINO — Throw-ins were pivotal for both Hoquiam and Tenino as the Grizzlies scored all three of their goals off throw-ins to edge out the Beavers in this Evergreen 1A match on Friday night.
Senior Brenner Carlstrom was the Hoquiam (2-1, 2-2) player who started all three scoring plays, beginning with a throw-in in the 32nd minute. Senior Osiel Rivera gathered in a long throw from Carlstrom to beat the Tenino goalkeeper for the opening goal.
Carlstrom added a second when his long throw into the penalty area found sophomore forward Alex PugaDeLaRosa for a header and a 2-0 lead in the 54th minute.
Tenino trimmed the score in half on a free-kick conversion in the 57th minute.
Adin Fillo made it 3-1 when he beat the Tenino goalkeeper to a Carlstrom throw-in one-on-one for the goal in the 70th minute.
Tenino made it interesting when a throw-in inside the HHS penalty area resulted in a goal past goalkeeper Tahj Malone. The sophomore goalie saved the final score when a reaction save with 45 seconds left pushed a potential game-tying shot out of the net.
“Overall, we did what we needed to do — win on the road and possess the ball,” HHS head coach Fidel Sanchez said. “We just need to mark up on set pieces and throw-ins.”
Hoquiam won the junior varsity match, 2-0. Allen Burnett scored both goals for the Grizzlies.
On Tuesday, Hoquiam hosts Rochester in another league match.
Loggerettes 10, Wildcats 0
WESTPORT — Sisters Haylie and Crissy Rurup combined to drive in five runs as Wishkah blanked Ocosta on Thursday in a non-league game shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule.
Haylie Rurup’s two-run double highlighted a six-run first inning that put the Loggerettes (3-0) in command. That was more than enough support for Teagan Louthan, who pitched a two-hitter with nine strikeouts.
“I think the key for us this year is this team is more focused,” Loggerette coach Tove Reibel said. “We’re still working on it, but I’m real happy where we are right now.”
Freshmen Haylie Rurup and Tiana Warren were cited for their hitting.
Ocosta fell to 0-3 for the season.
Wishkah entertains the Elma junior varsity on Tuesday.

Winning pitcher — Louthan (walked none; struck out nine). Losing pitcher — Sweeney (walked four; struck out seven).
Navigators 13, Wolfpack 0
LACEY — Sandwiching timely hits around walks and hit batters, Northwest Christian jumped out to an early lead and blanked Lake Quinault on Thursday in Pacific League play.
The Wolfpack (0-1, 2-1) issued four walks and hit two batters in the early innings, which helped the Navigators to take a commanding lead.
Gavin Baltzell recorded two hits for the Wolfpack.
“I don’t think we were ready to play,” said Twin Valley coach Keith Samplawski. “We had issues with every position tonight. We need to be more focused when it comes time to play a game. It was a good game to get out of the way because we played as badly as we could.”
Twin Valley will visit Ocosta on April 3.
