Okanogan 5, Omak 1
OKANOGAN – Okanogan scored in spurts to dispatch Omak, 5-1, in a Caribou Trail League soccer match played Oct. 2 in windy, cold, rainy weather.
Mya Moses scored on an assist from Mylie Leitz-Rawson early in the blustery match.
“We started off a little slow again, but quickly started pressuring them and were able to score a quick goal,” Okanogan coach Dean Klepec said.
From there, Okanogan spent most of the rest of the first half bunched in front of the Pioneers’ goal, working for a clear shot that the Omak defenders would not relinquish.
The Pioneers relied on fast breaks, one of which (against the wind) came close when Okanogan’s Gwen Painter move up for a block that ended in a collision.
Okanogan scored two quick goals – Vanessa Cardenas and Leitz-Rawson on assists from Moses - just before halftime for a 3-0 lead.
Temperature around 3 p.m. as teams arrived and warmed up was 71 degrees, as posted by the National Weather Service for the Omak Airport. Winds were from the south-southwest at 28 mph with gusts to 35 mph.
Just before halftime, the wind had switched nearly 180 degrees, coming from the north at 30 mph with gusts to 44 mph. The temperature was 54 degrees.
By the end of the match at 6 p.m., the temperature was 49 degrees, a drop of 22 degrees in three hours. The wind remained fairly strong at 24 mph with gusts to 38 mph.
Girls, dressed in shorts and shirts meant for warmer weather, soon were shivering. Substitutions were as often to allow players to put on warmer clothes and to get fresh legs into the match.
Leitz-Rawson, on assists from Moses and Myra Rasmussen, and Vanessa Cardenas, on an assist from McKenna Roberts, rounded out Okanogan’s scoring.
“We continued to pass well and set up lots of scoring opportunities throughout the rest of the game,” Klepec said. “Our defense did a good job of pressing high and keeping the ball in the attacking part of the field.”
“It was a tough game,” Omak coach Chris Werner said. “I thought Okanogan was able to execute their game plan as much as they could in the wind. We struggled to maintain possession. It was a pretty weird game to be a part of.”
Omak’s Diandra Ulloa scored off a corner kick on an assist from Joy Abrahamson.
Brewster 5, Tonasket 0
TONASKET – Brewster’s Kim Nila knocked in four goals and Alondra Torres one score in a 5-0 blanking of Tonasket in a league match Oct. 2.
“We played a very good first half, creating many scoring opportunities,” Brewster coach Alex Sanchez said after the match played under windy, cold conditions. “Defense played great. Betty Martinez has our defense working hard to keep them away from our goal.”
“That was one of the worst weather condition games I have ever been a part of,” said Tonasket coach Marah Norris. “First half we struggled attacking the ball. It was the first game back for Heidi Cruz. She had a major ankle injury against Okanogan, She played her heart out.
“Second half we rallied and controlled most of the game. We just weren’t able to get a shot off. With such a small team and many injuries this season the starting 11 are really having to work hard. I’m excited to play them again without 40 mph winds.”
Liberty Bell (9-0-0, 6-0) is at Brewster (8-2-0, 6-0) on Thursday in a match that will most likely break up the deadlock atop the Central Washington B League.
Also, Lake Roosevelt (3-6-0, 3-5) is at Tonasket (6-3-0, 4-2) on Thursday.

“We played really well the first half and were able to nearly match Liberty Bell’s tempo to the match.
“Liberty Bell has a great team with a deep bench,” Villalobos said. “We are getting more experience with every match, but most importantly we are getting confidence. Our girls played well for the whole match and played to the last whistle.”
