OKANOGAN – Okanogan and Lakeside fought to a one-all tie in a non-league soccer match Sept. 21 at The Plex.

Mylie Leitz-Rawson scored in the 62nd minute on an assist by Tamara Mathison.

“Defensively, we played great, really limiting easy shots for them. Taylor Meyer had a number of great saves in the goal,” Klepec said.
