Pirates Start Fast in Win Over Riverhawks


Thanks to three goals in the first half, the Adna girls soccer team put away Toledo early in a non-league contest, 3-1, Tuesday in Cheese Town. 

Gabby Solem got the action started for the Pirates, scoring in the 20th minute unassisted. Ava Humphrey added another in the 31st minute off an assist from Solem, and Rocio Ruiz de Velasco Guillen scored Adna’s final goal in the 40th off a dime from Humphrey. 

The Riverhawks managed a goal in the 69th minute by eighth grader Peyton Holter, but couldn’t come back from the deficit. Keeper Daphnie Bybee had 11 saves for Toledo. 

“We came out pretty solid,” Pirates coach Patrick Richardson said. “We had to make some adjustments to the field compared to the one we played on in Stevenson yesterday. But as we did, things continued improving on our end.”

The Pirates will look to keep it rolling against Winlock in Adna Monday at 6 p.m. while the Riverhawks play Tenino on Thursday on the road.
