RAINIER — After opening the season with a loss and a tie last week, the Seaside girls soccer team scored its first victory of the year Tuesday, a 7-0 decision at Rainier.
The Columbians (0-2 overall, with a loss last week at Astoria), started the game with just 10 players and were down to eight by the end of the game.
“Credit to Rainier for just playing,” said Seaside coach Josh Garhofer. “And their girls are tough, even when they went two players down.”
Still, it wasn’t enough to keep up with the Gulls, whose first goal was scored by freshman Emma Arden.
“Our midfielders all played well, Chloe (Bartel), Maddy (Brown) and Jess (Angulo-Joli), our striker who started the game on defense.”
Seaside used three players in goal, with Taylor Carson playing the first half, and Kara Spell and Audrey Kunde in the second.
The Gulls host Estacada at 3 p.m. Saturday.
