West Valley Ends Wenatchee Soccer Season
WENATCHEE, WA – Last night, we featured the District 6 4A semifinal between Wenatchee and West Valley from Lee Bofto Field at the Apple Bowl…
It was all Rams as West Valley would end Wenatchee’s season with a 3-nil win. The visitors would score first in the 18th minute on a goal by Kendall Sharp and take a 1-nothing lead into the break. The second half saw an even more aggressive Ram attack with Gracie Brownell scoring in the 63rd minute, followed by the game’s final goal by Shannon Curtis in the 78th.
Eric Granstrom had the call on the NCWLIFE Channel…
Eastmont, meanwhile, travelled to Moses Lake and knocked off the Chiefs by a final of 1-nothing. The game was scoreless until late when Eastmont finally broke through and ended the Big 9’s number one seed from the tournament. The Wildcats were the number four seed heading into districts with 44-points while the Rams were the #3 seed with 50-points, so West Valley will host Eastmont for the District Championship Saturday at 1 o’clock.
Also in district soccer action last night in the Caribou Trail League, Okanogan advanced to the Glue Crossover with 3-2 win over Cascade in Leavenworth last night.
Wenatchee Wins 5-Game Volleyball Finale at Ike
On the Les Schwab Prep Volleyball Scoreboard…
Wenatchee travelled to Eisenhower for its regular season finale last night and came away with a grueling, 5-game win 3-2. The Panthers won the first 27-25. Then dropped the second 13-25 before bouncing back to take the third 25-23. Ike won the fourth 25-18 to set up a 5th and final game with the Panthers winning 15-11. Wenatchee sits a half-game back of Eastmont for 2nd in the Big 9, awaiting the Wildcat’s final game, which has been moved to Friday, at home against Moses Lake.
In the District 6 1-A tournament last night, Cascade advanced with a 3-nil win over Omak. After the Kodiaks edged the Pioneers in the first game 25-20, they eased through the rest 25-10 and 10. Cascade heads to Lakeside for the Glue Crossover Saturday at 1 o’clock. District Champion Chelan will host Colville Saturday at 1.
Wenatchee Falls to West Kelowna on Road 6-2
The Wenatchee Wild fell to 6-and-7 on their road-record in BCHL play last night with a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the West Kelowna Warriors…
The Wild came out strong in the first period, scoring just a minute-20 into the game on Murphy Stratton’s 3rd tally of the season. But it was all Warriors from there as Lucas Cullen and Mike Hardman would score two goals each as West Kelowna built a 2-1 lead at the first intermission. It would be 3-2 after the second period. They’d add three more goals in the 3rd for the final score.
Wenatchee will try to bounce back Friday when West Kelowna comes here at 7 o’clock. The Wild will then host Powell River Saturday at 7.
As we prepare for what is now a THURSDAY Bridge of Sportsmanship game between Wenatchee and Eastmont, let’s take a look back at least year’s 49th meeting between the two.
After a crazy, back-and-forth game that would be tied at 28 at the end of regulation, overtime would be required to settle it. Ian Dunn and Mark Miller had the call for KOHO radio as seen on the NCWLIFE Channel a year ago…
It was only the 12th win for Eastmont out of 49 games between the two schools. Tomorrow marks the Golden Anniversary of the rivalry and we’ll have it LIVE beginning with our pregame tailgate show at 6 with Eric Granstrom and hall of fame coach Phil Zukowski here on the NCWLIFE Channel.
