State Championship Match

Camas 3, West valley (Yakima) 0

(Puyallup, WA) The Camas Papermakers set the tone early in this Title tilt in the 6th minute Maddie Kemp buried an unassisted shot from 15 yards to the far post and Camas quickly took the lead. The Rams would hold serve as the two teams battled scoreless to the break with the Papermakers up 1-0.

The 2nd half look liked the 2 teams would remain embroiled in a tight 1-goal game but Camas picked up them offensive tempo led by Kemp pushing the ball and her team mates that led to an insurance goal in the 58th when Sabine Postma took a pass from Sarah Davidson and then unloaded a rocket shot just under the cross bar to make it 2-0.

The Papermakers then clinched it in the 73rd when Morgan Winston fired a 35-yard laser from the right side the far post. Rams keeper Jada Stevenson who is a tremendous keeper was frustrated watching those shots go in as she had no chance of keeping them out of the net, just perfect shots from the Papermakers.

Camas took home the big trophy and the Rams for the 2nd straight year settles for 2nd. Maddie Kemp earned our Tommy Lowe of Greene Realty Player of the game for Camas while Lauryn Peters took it for the Rams. Our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game was Sabine Postma’s rocket shot from 30-yards out for the 2nd goal.

Semi-Finals at Sparks Stadium

Friday, November 11

Camas 1, Skyline 0

(Puyallup, WA) The Papermakers came into this match with one blemish, a tie on their undefeated record and were in no mood to change that. Skyline came in with a recent history of success at State that is the envy of any program and were ready to add to that legacy.

The 2 teams were embroiled in a knock-down drag out contest with lots of physicality and collisions. Deep booming kicks and throw ins with distance kept both teams on their toes but both defenses and keepers were resilient denying each other. Anna Smith for the Spartans handled 8 shots had 3 saves and for Camas Julia Coombs collected 5 saves shutting out Skyline.

As solid as Smith was, Camas’ Alyssa Tomasini found a crack in the 70th minute from the top of the box. Tomasini took the loose ball turned on it and fired hitting the only goal in the upper deck of the net. The win denies Skyline a trip back to the State Finals and now will play West Valley on Saturday at 4pm for the Championship. The Spartans get Hanford at noon in the 3rd place match. Our Tommy Lowe of the Greene Realty Group Players of the Game were Maddie Kemp for Camas and for Skyline Alexa Kirton. Our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game went to the Papermakers’ Alyssa Tomasini for her game winning goal.

West Valley (Yakima) 2, Hanford 1

(Puyallup, WA) The Rams fell short losing to Issaquah in the State Championship Match last year and were bound and determined to get back and take another crack at it this season and they have checked off the first step with their 2nd straight Semi-Final win.

The Rams had faced the Hanford Falcons already once this season and pulled out a 3-2 win. The re-match had a little more riding on it over a season opening non-leaguer. The 2 teams battled in a physical game with lots of contact and appeared we were headed to a scoreless first half. But the Rams Kendra Sharp headed in a long shot from Llesenia Massey in the 35th minute and took a 1-0 lead into the break.

Hanford would score an equalizer in the 2nd half in the 57th minute when Taylor Matheny launched a corner kick into the box, Rams keeper Jada Stevenson punched it out but the Falcon’s Jessica Mahar got on the loose ball and knocked it in from 8 yards out to tie it up at 1-1.

West Valley would score the match winner on their own corner kick 10-minutes later n the 67th. Lilly Fetzer lobbed a kick in toward the near post and Kendra Hanses flicked it in just inside the post. Hanford would press hard in the final minutes trying to tie it up again but the Rams defense held and West Valley took the victory.

The Rams will play Camas on Saturday at 4pm for the 4A Championship while Hanford battles Skyline for 3rd at Noon. Our Tommy Lowe of Greene Realty Players of the Game went to WV’s Kendall Sharp and Hanford’s Jessica Mahar. Our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game goes to Kendra Hanses with the game winning goal.

Archbishop Murphy 2, Tumwater 1 (5-3 shoot-out)

(Tumwater, WA) The T-Birds struck first in the 21st minute when Bella Foos lofted a soft shot over a drawn out Wildcat keeper and slow rolled it in for the goal. Kayse Smack set-up the goal with a long lead in pass for the assist. The 1-0 score would hold to the half and the T-Birds led.

In the 2nd half the T-Birds came out firing with tons of pressure on the ABM back line and Freshman keeper Lily Zwiefel but the defense held with the help from the crossbar as Tumwater’s Stephanie Moore nearly ended the match in regulation launching a shot that bounced off the the high bar.

Tumwater was in control of this match but like all matches or games where one team seemingly has it in their hands but can’t stretch the score and the danger of that is it only takes one good run to punch in an equalizer. This moment came in the 63rd minute when Lexie Klaudt pressed the T-Bird defender from behind leading to a turn-over that the Cats’ Talia Daigle snatched and passed it over to Freshman Madison Long who did not miss in a 1 on 1 with T-Bird keeper Cassie Mullin.

The match would remain tied through regulation and 2 Golden Goal 5-minute overtimes. So 90-minutes was not enough and the match went to a shoot-out. The Wildcats shot first and after 2 rounds both teams were tied at 2-2. Murphy’s Reagan Hupp made it 3-2 and that score held after Tumwater’s Rillee Stillings shot went high over the top of the goal and ABM held a 3-2 advantage after 3 rounds.

Both teams made their 4th round shots setting up the Wildcats 5th shooter who could shut out the T-Birds and Lexie Klaudt did just that firing it to the left side of the goal for the game winner. The Wildcats will now face the winner of Wednesday night’s Clarkston vs Fife contest. Tumwater had their season come to an end.

Our Tommy Lowe of Greene Realty Players of the Game went to ArchBishop Murphy’s Lexie Klaudt and Tumwater’s Bella Foos. Our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game goes to Madison Long’s goal on the Talia Daigle assist to tie the game in the 2nd half.

State Championship Match

Saint George’s 1, Kalama 0

(Sumner, WA) The surprising Kalama Chinooks used the same strategy in the Championship game against Saint George’s as they did as big underdogs to Adna shocking the Pirates with a 1-0 win in the Semi-finals after a 3-1 shout-out tie-breaker. In Friday’s game they were outshot by Adna 16-1 but denied each and everyone of those shots while clearing the ball constantly.

The same tactics were in force in the Championship and not for a very questionable foul called on the Nooks in the box in the 38th minute resulting in a PK, this match likely would have headed for OT as well. Kalama’s offense was more active in this game with the Dragons taking 4 total shots, 2 on goal while SG finished with 7 total shots 2 on frame and the 1 goal.

The questionable call came in stoppage time with SG’s Lydia Bergquist attacking along the baseline when Kalama’s Emily Mickelson went for the ball and there was contact, the referee called the foul giving the Dragons a PK and Mary Neder did not miss punching in the shot for a 1-0 lead going to the break.

In the 2nd half the Nooks turned up the offensive pressure and came close to tying it up in the 45th with Maddie Hull firing a shot that bounced off the post. The defensive stand off would continue and time ran our on the Chinooks who took home the 2nd place trophy. Saint George’s brought home the big trophy for their 1st State Soccer Championship.

Or Pacific Sports Spa Players of the game for Saint George’s it was Lydia Bergquist and for Kalama it was Maddie Hull. Our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game went to Mary Neder knocking home the winning shot on the PK.

3rd Place Consolation Match

Adna 1, Liberty Bell 0

The Pirates were clearly devastated coming off the shootout loss to Kalama in the Semi-finals, a team they had beaten 3 times this season by a combined 11-3 and now they had to turn around and play the 3rd place match at 10 in the morning.

Looking at the body language it appeared the Pirates were not in the mood to play a morning game and 3rd or 4th place didn’t matter to them while their opponent Liberty Bell came out early and were doing team warm-up drills and more in line with a normal pre-game.

Looks are deceiving and when the whistle blew to start the match Adna was focused on bringing home the 3rd place trophy. Devanie Kleemeyer made a spectacular play just 10-minutes into the match when she headed the ball to herself split defenders and then pushed the ball past the on-rushing Mountainlion keeper Lauren Ochoa and easily pushed it in for the score and an early 1-0 lead.

In the end that would prove to be the game winner, Adna would keep the pressure on but Ashley Pardue and the Pirate back line held firm and they secured 3rd place. Our Pacific Sports Spa Players of the Game went to Adna’s Devanie Kleemeyer and Liberty Bell’s Sally Thornton-White.

Semi-Finals at Sunset Chev Stadium

Friday, November 18

Kalama 1, Adna 0 (3-1 Shoot-out)

(Sumner, WA) The Adna Pirates came into this match not only knowing a lot about their opponent Kalama, but had beatenb not once, not twice but 3 times by a combined score of 11-3 so no doubt they felt good about their Semi-Final match-up. But instead they are trying to figure out how they did not get the win as they dominated offensively not just for 80 minutes but for 90 minutes yet could never punch in a goal which would have been a game winner if they could have found a scoring combination. The Pirates outshot Kalama 16-1 but the Nooks defense led by Kalama’s keeper Mary Morrell held firm.

The Nooks no question came out to play defense and concentrated on clearing the ball tine and time again while keeping the Adna offense in check and frustrated as the match wore on. The backline with Emily Mickelson and Maddie Hull were physical and aggressive handling the Adna strikers Devanie Kleemeyer, Holli Edminster and Kenya Lorton.

With nothing settled through regulation and 2 5-minute OT’s the shootout would decide this match. Kleemeyer would step in for Ashley Pardue at keeper for Adna. After the 1st round of the shootout it was tied 1-1 Adna went 1st and Payton Aselton scored while Kalama’s Maddie Hull kept them even at 1-1. The 2nd Pirate shooter Kenya Lorton would miss and the Nooks Lily Given connected and Kalama led 2-1. In the 3rd round Kleemeyer shot but Morrell stuffed it while Kalama’s Natalie Coleman scored making it 3-1 and forcing the next Adna shooter to score or the game would be over and Holli Edminster would hit the left post and the match was over.

Kalama pulls off the huge upset and advances to the State Championship match against St George’s tomorrow at 2pm. Adna will take on Liberty Bell for 3rd at 10am. Our Pacific Sports Spa Players of the Game went to Mary Morrell for Kalama and Devanie Kleemeyer for Adna. our ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game went to Emily Mickelson for a great clearance late in the 1st half denying Adna their best chance to score.

Saint George’s 2, Liberty Bell 0

(Sumner, WA) The Dragons would score 1 in each half and complete the shut out of the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions to advance to the Title Match against Kalama. Kaitlyn Vera scored in the 10th minute with help of an assist from Lydia Bergquist for a 1-0 halftime lead.

Mary Neder then popped in a penalty kick in the 46th for an insurance goal that would put a ton of pressure on Liberty Bell and they simply could not muster any offense. Saint George’s will play Kalama for the State Title on Saturday at 2pm and the Mountain Lions face Adna at 10am for 3rd place.
