Early attack mode sent the Nisqually 1A League Seattle Christian Warriors' girls' soccer team into an early lead en route to a deceivingly close 3-2 non-conference win against the visiting Evergreen Conference 2A W.F. West (Chehalis) Bearcats at Valley Ridge Park field No. 3 on Tues., Sept. 15.
"We had some good passing early," said Tanna Brinkman. "Then, we were able to keep getting good shots on goal."
Aggressively pursuing the ball, the Warriors peppered the Bearcat goal regularly with shots and kept the visitors on their heels from the outset.
The constant pressure paid off in an unassisted Megan Nielsen (who was celebrating her birthday) goal in the 10th minute.
As the home team poured in shot after shot, the W.F. West keeper Kyndra Haller strove mightily to prevent the onslaught of shots out of goal.
By the 20th minute, the tired Bearcat defenders yielded a second goal.
Morgan Gaston cleared to take a nice pass from Isabella Responte and quickly nailed another SC goal.
With the interval times between shots lessening, Responte deposited her own goal in the 25th minute.More ›
