Beavers Cap Off Regular Season With a Victory

Posted

With both teams agreeing to call the game after just one half due to field conditions, Tenino came away with a 2-0 road victory over Eatonville to end the regular season.

The pouring rain caused the field to become muddy and dangerous, and in a match with no playoff implications, Tenino coach Kevin Schultz and Eatonville’s coach each agreed to end the game at the half.

Megan Letts scored both goals for the Beavers, in the 11th and 32nd minutes. Her first goal, unassisted, came when Letts dribbled through a couple defenders and punched a shot into the back of the net. On her second goal, Grace Vestal played a pass to Letts who drilled it from 35 yards out.

“Our team, overall and considering the field conditions, played well and connected passes, which was good to see,” Schultz said. “We went into it with the mindset of a playoff game. It was good for us to get a win heading into districts.”

Keeper Trinity Tafoya recorded three saves and the Beavers outshot the Cruisers 10-3.

Tenino ends the regular season with a 12-4 overall record and will travel to the winner of either King’s Way Christian or Seton Catholic for the opening round of districts on Tuesday. The Beavers beat the Knights 5-0 and the Cougars 4-1 earlier this season.
