Coeur d’Alene 1, SO
SPOKANE — The Tigers won on the fourth shooter in sudden death to beat the Vikings in a match moved from Hart Field to under the lights at Albi Stadium.
Erika Skindlov’s penalty kick in the 60th minute tied the game at 1 for Coeur d’Alene (2-3).
The teams then eschewed overtime — which is normally played in regular-season games in Washington, but not in Idaho — and went straight to penalty kicks.
It was 3-3 after the first five shooters for each team. Coeur d’Alene then made three in a row in sudden death before missing the fourth, and LC made its fourth to win the game.
“I’m not disappointed at all; I thought our girls played really well,” Coeur d’Alene coach Andy Vredenburg said. “We had a lot of opportunities, and we start putting those opportunities away and we’ll start winning these games.
“It’s the first time we’ve played on turf this year; the game is much faster, and the girls adjusted well. The girls play a lot better when the pace is faster.”
Coeur d’Alene travels to Post Falls today at 4:30 for its 5A Inland Empire League opener.
First half — none. Second half — 1, LC, Anna Ackerman (Cameron Gardner), 54:00. 2, Cd’A, Erika Skindlov (penalty kick), 60:00.

COEUR d’ALENE — Greyden Lee and Keaton Murphree each had two goals and an assist as the host Timberwolves rolled past the Bengals in their 5A Inland Empire League opener at the Irma Anderl Soccer Complex.
“We were able to maintain a solid amount of possession in the midfield and defended well against the Lewiston counter-attack down the wings as well as through the middle in our defensive third,” Lake City coach Alan Rich said. “We attacked well and were able to spread the scoring over several players on both the run of play and set pieces. I’m pleased with the result today and the way the team is coming together as we head into the main part of our season.”
