Girls’ Clatsop Clash ends in scoreless tie

The Seaside defense prepares to pounce on an Astoria player during Tuesday's game.

The score was reflective of the game Tuesday night at CMH Field, between the Seaside and Astoria girls soccer teams.

The Cowapa League Clatsop Clash ended in a 0-0 tie, as neither the Gulls nor the Lady Fishermen could gain an upper hand on offense, and both played solid defensive games.

It was the fourth scoreless tie between the two programs since 2013.

Seaside had the only shot attempts over the first 38 minutes — shots by Annaka Garhofer (wide left), Taylor Carson (save by Astoria keeper Lexi Law), Sonoma Moon and Chloe Bartel (both wide right).

An Astoria free kick by Sarah Lertora with two minutes left in the half was knocked down by Seaside goalkeeper Jessica Angulo-Joli, as was a follow-up by Haley Kelley.

The Lady Fishermen stepped up their offensive attack in the second half, resulting in a breakaway challenge in the 55th minute that Angulo-Joli was able to turn away.

That was followed by a succession of shots on goal from Astoria’s Taileigh Cole, with Angulo-Joli making saves on all three attempts.

An Andrea Harris-to-Cole pass play ended with Angulo-Joli’s biggest save of the night, with 16:30 remaining.

Bryre Babbitt finished the game as the Seaside goalkeeper, when Angulo-Joli was moved to a midfield position.

Other than a couple shot-on-goal attempts by Astoria and a challenge by Angulo-Joli that was stopped by Law, the final 10 minutes was a stalemate, with the two teams finishing in the scoreless tie.

With three games remaining, the Lady Fishermen remain in third in the league standings at 3-3-1, while Seaside is 1-5-1.
