SoccerScappoose 2, Astoria 1WARRENTON - The Astoria girls soccer team broke their scoring drought, but the losses continue for the Fishermen as Scappoose defeated Astoria 2-1 in a District 1 game Tuesday night at the Warrenton Soccer Complex.

The loss eliminated Astoria from the playoff picture. The Fishermen drop to 0-4-1 in district play, with their regular season finale today against Corbett.

The Fishermen had two breakaway plays in the first half, but failed to convert, while Scappoose junior Brittany Klippel scored 20 minutes into the game, when a shot deflected off her leg into the net.

Astoria scored its first goal in eight games 22 minutes into the second half when Vanessa Baeten carried the ball up the right sideline, passed to Maia Fastabend, who crossed it to Holly Timmerman, who scored easily to tie the game at 1-1.

But the Indians would have the final say. Kara Shadley scored the winning goal in the latter stages of the game.

Astoria missed on several close-range attempts in the second half.

Seaside 1, Rainier 1RAINIER - Seaside scored 38 seconds into the game, but was blanked after that as the Gulls and Rainier finished in a 1-1 tie in a District 1 girls soccer match Tuesday.

The Gulls finish the regular season at 1-3-2 in league play (5-5-4 overall), and will face Scappoose in a playoff game Thursday at Scappoose (time to be announced).

Seaside's Abby Frank scored her first goal of the season, a one-footed volley into the right side of the net, just 38 seconds into the game. Micah Cerelli got the assist.

Rainier scored 25 minutes into the second half when Becca Roth sent a strong, 30-yard shot into the upper part of the net to tie the game.

"I thought we played tough," said Seaside coach Dave Rouse, whose team clinched a playoff spot with the tie. "We certainly had as many opportunities to score as they did. There were times when possession went one way or the other, and the momentum was there and then not there.

"I'm not unhappy about the game," he said. "Our midfielders came in and did a really tough job for us. Hazel Owens had a wonderful game - she always plays tough."
