The Liberty Bell High School girls’ soccer team gave league-leading Tonasket a tough match before falling, 2-1, in an Oct. 22 road game, then came back with an easy 8-0 win over last-place Oroville on the Lady Lions’ home pitch on Oct. 24.
The week’s results left the Lady Lions with firm control of second place in league play with a record of 9-2 (10-4 overall), behind unbeaten Tonasket. Liberty Bell finished regular-season play with a home match against Lake Roosevelt on Tuesday (Oct. 29), and will be looking at post-season play with a likely first-round bye in district play as the league’s second seed.
“It was a good tough match against Tonasket,” Liberty Bell coach Lincoln Post said. “Camille Odell scored her first goal of the season in her first game of the season. Both teams had opportunities to score but the game remained close until late in the second half. Chloe Sprauer had an excellent day in goal.”
“We will hopefully face Tonasket again in the playoffs,” the coach added.
Against Oroville, the teams played 9-on-9 because the visitors were short on players. Most of the game was played in front of the Oroville net, with the visitors getting few opportunities to score.
