Soccer team gets DP, West Valley
A young Colville High School girlâ€™s soccer team faces a busy week with Great Northern League match-ups against Deer Park on Tuesday and West Valley at home on Thursday. Both matches are scheduled for 4 p.m. starts.
The Indians (2-2) are coming off a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of GNL powerhouse Cheney last Thursday on the Colville pitch.
In that match, Colville simply got very few scoring opportunities against the Blackhawks.
â€śWe were pretty timid taking shots,â€ť conceded CHS head coach Dave Rarrick. â€śWe were inconsistentâ€¦Cheney got their first two goals within the first three-minutes. All their scores were in spurts.
Solid in final 32
â€śWe played them tough in the last 32-minutes and were able to finish strong.â€ť
In an entertaining 2-1 win back on Sept. 11 at home against former GNL rival and new Northeast A League member Medical Lake, Colville struck early and was able to maintain a cushion throughout.
Dakota Blain and Danni Rogne scored goals for CHS.
Keeper Kayla Howes had 13 saves for the Indians.
Colville got 21 shots on goal to Medical Lakeâ€™s 14.
â€śThat was a good game,â€ť Rarrick figured. â€śWe had pretty good possession and got a lot of good chances (to score).â€ť
Rarrick said he was impressed with his girls and how well they handled MLâ€™s pressure in the matchâ€™s final five-minutes.
â€śThey put a press on us the last five-minutes,â€ť Rarrick said. â€śI thought we responded well to that.â€ť
Colville opened the season with a 7-1 rout of Priest River. In that match-up, Colvilleâ€™s Dakota Blain scored three second half goals.
