Ranked last at the 5A level, the St. Helens Lions visited Astoria Thursday at CMH Field, where the Lady Fishermen posted a 2-0 win.
Astoria’s Pele Starr-Hollow scored just minutes into the game, as Maddie Sisley made a diagonal pass to Karen Jiminez, who centered the ball to Starr-Hollow, who scored to left side of the net.
Minutes later, Jiminez scored off an assist from Sisley. Astoria’s Ashley Sisley and Caleigh Peterson had big defensive games.
Corbett 3, Astoria 2
On the plus side, Astoria freshman goalkeeper Audrey Cereghino made several late-game saves that at least gave the Lady Fishermen a chance right up until the final whistle in a nonleague girls soccer game Tuesday afternoon with Corbett.
On the negative side, three shots got through for the Cardinals, who posted a 3-2 win over Astoria on the west field of the Lower Columbia Youth Soccer complex.
Maddie Sisley scored just minutes into the game for a quick 1-0 lead, but a goal by Corbett’s Raegan Heffler and a penalty kick from teammate Ellie Mason (off a handball in the penalty area) gave the Cardinals a 2-1 halftime lead.
Off an assist from Harlie Wiedmaier, Sisley tallied her second goal midway through the second half to tie the game at 2-2, but Corbett answered with a goal from Taylor Donohue off a crossing pass with 15 minutes remaining for the eventual game-winner.
Seaside 4, Junction City 0
Seaside’s Anna Knoch scored two goals, and teammates Emma Arden and Kaylee Snyder added one apiece in a 4-0 nonleague girls soccer win over Junction City on Wednesday at Broadway Field.
Arden notched the first goal off a run up the right side midway through the first half, and Knoch made it 2-0 in the 30th minute on a shot in front of the goal.
“The first half started with Junction City pushing us with a good forward (sophomore Ellie Hensen) creating problems and several shots,” said Seaside coach Dave Rouse. “We changed the momentum as the half developed and missed a number of shots, and our back line did a good job neutralizing (Hensen) when she was on the field.”
Knoch scored on a corner kick just six minutes into the second half, and Snyder scored five minutes later.
Seaside plays Tuesday at St. Helens.
