Thursday’s Prep Girls Soccer: Wolves Shut Out Tigers
By The Chronicle
Centralia played solid defense throughout the game but couldn’t hold back Black Hills the entire game in a 5-0 win for the Wolves in an Evergreen 2A Conference girls soccer match at Tiger Stadium in Centralia on Thursday.
The Wolves scored one goal in the first half and Centralia coach Henry Gallanger was pleased with the Tigers’ defensive performance. Black Hills eventually found some momentum in the 65th minute and scored four goals in the second half.
Gallanger commended the play of Makiah Harris on the back line for the Tigers. Jimena Luis made 13 saves for Centralia.
“It was a good team effort as far as their work rate. They played against a very good team tonight,” Gallanger said. “They did a good job of holding the water back as long as they could and eventually the dam just broke. I’m happy with the effort from all of our players. For all the goals that they scored a lot of goals they didn’t score. Half of our players had ball marks all over them, there were a lot of good things that took place tonight.”
Centralia (0-7, 0-2) travels to Rochester on Tuesday for an EvCo contest.
Beavers Cruise Past Riptide
SOUTH BEND — Tenino scored seven goals in the first half to cruise to a 7-0 win against Raymond/South Bend in a 1A Evergreen League girls soccer game here on Thursday night.

Abby Serverse made two saves and Trinity Tafoya made one save in net to record a clean sheet for the Beavers.
“I thought we played really well. We came out with a lot of intensity. We talked about how we want to approach every game like it’s an important playoff game and they brought the intensity from the start,” Tenino coach Kevin Schultz said. “We moved the ball well and good stuff happened. We did a good job of finding each other in space. In the second half, we subbed on a lot of swing players, some freshman getting some important varsity minutes. We hit the post four times in the second half, still played really well.”
Schultz highlighted freshman Nicole Fralick, Cheyenne Rossow and Kamryn Oliviera for keeping the pressure on in the second half for Tenino.
The Beavers (7-0-1, 2-0) host Forks on Tuesday in a league match.
