Despite home runs, Dawgs split with Cougars


BREWSTER – Liberty Bell topped Brewster in a close league soccer match, 3-2, following a shootout on April 9.

The game ended two-all in regulation.

“Liberty Bell played their best match so far, as we are getting closer to having our full squad available,” Mountain Lions’ coach Mike Baerveldt said. “Liberty Bell squandered a few opportunities early in the game that should have been put away. I was a bit disconcerted to see a mistake in the transition from defense to midfield right before the half that resulted  in Brewster going up 1-0.”

In the second, half the scoring went back and forth with Owen Hevly sending a corner kick to the top of the six-yard box where Kohl Simmons headed it in for a one-all tie.

After Brewster deflected a shot for a 2-1 lead at the 61st minute, Henry Jones passed to Sebastian Kar, who shot the ball past Brewster’s oncoming goalkeeper for a two-all tie.

Liberty Bell goalkeeper Simon Studen finished with four saves in regulation.

“Two five-minute sudden-death overtimes were played, without much happening as both teams were a bit fatigued and the game proceeded to penalty kicks,” Baerveldt said.

In the shootout, Studen blocked Brewster’s second shot, the Bears’ third shot flew over the crossbar and Studen blocked the fourth shot.

Liberty Bell’s Sebastian Kar, Bellamy Kar, Jones and Simmons, his team up 3-2, put the game away with a stutter-step and shot that banged into the upper right corner to end the game.


Tonasket 5, Oroville 0

TONASKET – Tonasket broke open a close league soccer match in the second half of a 5-0 shutout over Manson on April 9.

The Tigers led 1-0 at the half.

“We had eight shots on goal and seven shots at goal,” Tonasket coach Jim Elias said.

Chris Rivera scored three goals and Alexander Flores had two goals for Tonasket.

The Tigers’ goalkeepers Austen Garcia finished with four saves and Esteban Flores had eight saves.

“They had three shots on goal and eight shots at goal,” Elias said.

“We never say anything about how hard the refs have been working. They have been doing a great job of being fair to both teams on the field, which makes the game is more fun to watch and for players to learn from.”


Pateros 4, Brewster JV 0

BREWSTER – The Pateros soccer team blanked the Brewster junior varsity 4-0 on April 9.

“It was a good run out for both sides,” Pateros coach Jesse Villalobos said.

The Billygoats got on the board with a penalty kick by Omar Mota.

Mota attacked from midfield for two more goals to finish with a hat trick.

“Our other goal came from Erik Espino from center midfield,” Villalobos said. “Both sides created great opportunities to score, the score could’ve easily been 6-4 either way.

“Pateros has been showing constant improvement on formation and positioning. That showed in this match as we were able to control the midfield for long stretches of the game. That is where our goal scoring opportunities came from and the clean sheet gave us confidence in the structure of our back line as well.”
