WINTHROP – Tonasket edged Liberty Bell, 5-4, in overtime during a Central Washington B League match Sept. 26.
“The girls have been working so hard this season to be able to compete with Liberty Bell,” said Tonasket coach Marah Norris. “So to walk away with a win was very rewarding. It was a solid competitive game by both teams.”
Heidi Cruz scored a goal in the first and second halves before getting the winner in overtime.
Rachel Bolich and Arceli Torres each had a goal.
“Melanie Morales (goalie) had an amazing game,” Norris said. “She saved a lot of shots. She has been training extra hard this season.”
“Great game versus Tonasket, unfortunately we lost in overtime,” Liberty Bell coach Lincoln Post said. “But it was an excellent match. The Tonasket team showed a fierce tenacity up to the end. They are really well coached, and it showed with their effective offside trap and teamwork.
“Maisy Shaw led our scoring with two goals in the first half and a third by Tommie Ochoa. Josephine Cole scored our fourth goal.”
