PREP GIRLS SOCCER: Sandpoint wins shortened game

Print Article

LEWISTON - Bailey Scrimsher scored the game-winning goal in the second half, leading Sandpoint to a 1-0 win over Lewiston (2-9-3) in a nonleague soccer game on Saturday.

Due to a schedule mix-up, the game was shortened to 25-minute halves, with Scrimsher's goal coming in the 35th minute. Makayla Sundquist notched her seventh shutout in goal for the Bulldogs (10-2-3), who haven't lost all year against Inland Empire League competition.

"The girls played well for only having a five-minute warmup, and were able to calm down in the second half and put the game away," said Bulldogs assistant Julie Pitre, lauding the effort of the defense. "Athena Robinson did a great job shutting down their attack, and Makayla again came up big for us with a shutout."

Sandpoint is at Moscow on Tuesday.

Coeur d'Alene 0

Lake City 0

COEUR d'ALENE - Viking freshman goalkeeper Julia Roach had nine saves and Timberwolves sophomore Tiegan Horton had five saves as the teams played to a scoreless draw in the 5A Inland Empire League finale for both schools at the Lake City football field.

"It was a pretty uneventful game," Lake City coach Matt Ruchti said. "Both goalkeepers were great today, but both teams were pretty average today. We had a couple of chances, but hit the post a few times."

The teams will meet again Thursday in the semifinals of the 5A Region 1 tournament at Lake City, as the Timberwolves (5-5-4, 2-1-3 5A IEL) will be the second seed and the Vikings (5-7-2, 2-2-2) the third.

First half - none. Second half - none.

Shots on goal - Cd'A 5, LC 9.

Saves - Cd'A, Julia Roach 9; LC, Tiegan Horton 5.

Post Falls 5

Moscow 1

POST FALLS - Kelcie Hedge scored three goals and had two assists as the Trojans beat the Bears in a nonleague match.

"We're starting to come into true form," Post Falls coach Briggs Anderson said. "Which is good for us with regionals coming up this week."

Freshman Olivia Miller had two goals for Post Falls (9-6), the 5A IEL champion, which hosts fourth-seeded Lewiston in the semifinals of the 5A Region 1 tournament on Thursday.

"For us to get two goals from Olivia, that's what we're trying to do and get the younger players involved," Anderson said. "All in all, they're going to be big in helping us achieve what we're trying to do."

First half - 1, PF, Kelcie Hedge (Alli Crain), 4:00. 2, PF, Olivia Miller (Hedge), 17:00. 3, PF, Hedge (penalty kick), 31:00. 4, PF, Hedge (Erica Simpson), 38:00. Second half - 5, PF, Miller (Hedge), 50:00. 6, Mos, Joelle Stephens (unassisted), 79:00.

Shots on goal - Mos 3, PF 12.

Lakeland 2

Timberlake 1

RATHDRUM - Katelyn Langlitz scored on a penalty kick in the 68th minute to lift the Hawks past the Tigers in a nonleague match at Corbit Field.

"It was very physical play tonight," Timberlake coach Steve Michael said. "Fair play, but a physical game. I was very pleased with how the ladies played. We had some opportunities and created a lot of good stuff, but couldn't finish it."

Angelique Wetherelt had 10 saves for Lakeland (5-9), which hosts Lewiston on Tuesday.

Traci Wall scored the first goal on a free kick in the 14th minute for Timberlake (7-4-2), which travels to Kellogg on Thursday.

First half - 1, TL, Traci Wall (free kick), 14:00. 2, LL, Jordan Ward (free kick), 30:00. Second half - 3, LL, Katelyn Langlitz (penalty kick), 68:00.

Shots on goal - TL 13, LL 12.

Saves - TL, Koral Yeager 11; LL, Angelique Wetherelt 10.

Bonners Ferry 3

Cd'A Charter 0

COEUR d'ALENE - Liz Racer scored two unassisted goals to lead the Badgers past the Panthers in an Intermountain League match at Woodland Middle School.

"We defended them well in the first half," Coeur d'Alene Charter coach David Baxter said. "Racer's first goal should be a highlight on SportsCenter. She was standing 18 yards out where the line meets the penalty box, beat our defender and chipped it over our 6-foot-2 goalie with a little backspin and put it in. She's definitely the player of the year in the IML this year."

With the win, Bonners Ferry (9-4-1, 8-0-1) clinches the league title and No. 1 seed into the 3A District 1-2 tournament starting next Saturday at Lakeland High.

Coeur d'Alene Charter (5-8-1, 3-4-1 IML) faces Orofino on Tuesday at St. Maries High.

First half - 1, BF, Liz Racer (unassisted), 10:27. Second half - 2, BF, Sarah Schuman (unassisted), 42:58. 3, BF, Racer (unassisted), 62:09.

Shots on goal - BF 8, CCA 11.

Saves - BF, Sarah Beck 11; CCA, Jackie Jensen 5.
