On Wednesday night ESN had 3 games on the air with a pair of girls soccer matches with surprising results and a Volleyball match. Check out our coverage of each event with links to our post games shows, re-caps and video highlights.

Girls Soccer

Onalaska 1, Kalama 0 (Shoot-out 4-3)

Kalama had won 10 matches in a row and clinched the league Championship while Onalaska was battling for the 2nd seed and clinched it which means they will host in the 1st round of the District Tournament. They will host either Ocosta or Napavine on Monday (Link to District Bracket). Toledo, who the Loggers beat last Monday in a shoot-out will be the 3 seed and travel to the winner of the Ocosta/Napavine match. Kalama holds on to the #1 seed and will host Forks on Monday.

The two teams battled to a 0-0 tie and went to the shoot-out where the Loggers pulled out a 4-3 win. You can get all the details by watching the post-game show or just below is the entire shoot-out in a video highlight. Onalaska is now 10-3 overall and Kalama now 11-3. The Pacific Sports Spa visiting team MVP went to Onalaska’s keeper Alex Cleveland-Barrera and the Thorbeckes home team MVP was Kalama’s keeper Jessica Meyer.

Olympia 3, Curtis 1

The Olympia Bears had nothing to play for while the host team Curtis had a lot on the line with seeding into the District Tournament but may have been still feeling the stinging defeat at Puyallup on Monday where the Vikings still had a shot at the #1 seed. After that defeat they needed a win over Olympia to get the 3 seed and host an opening round match but now they have fallen to the 5th seed and will have to travel to Camas on Saturday at noon. (Link to District Bracket) Olympia was already the 7 seed and will play at Tahoma on Saturday at 1pm.

The Vikings came out and scored quickly in the 1st minute setting up what looked like a real bounce back match for Curtis but Olympia settled down and tied the match before halftime. Olympia then bullied their way into the Curtis side of the field for most of the 2nd half not allowing many opportunities for the Vikings to strike back. The Bears would get the go ahead goal shortly after halftime in the 43rd minute on a long outside shot. they would add an insurance goal late and simply wouldn’t allow the Vikings many attack opportunities. 

Olympia improved to 9-3-1 in league play while Curtis dropped to 8-2-3.

Volleyball

Curtis 3, Emerald Ridge 0 (25-15, 25-22, 25-12)

The Curtis Vikings comeback in set 2 really ended the match taking the wind out of the sails of the Jaguars. The Vikings first went up 1-0 on a 25-15 1st set win. The set was tight until Tatyana Tauese took-over the serve with just a 12-10 lead but fired off 5 straight aces for a 17-10 lead that Emerald Ridge could not recover. In the 2nd set the Jags took an early lead and even though Curtis woould battle back they never took the lead until late. Trailing 20-18 Kelsey Richards served up 5 straight points with some great rallies and defense to push their lead to 24-20. They would win it 25-22 and then cruised in the 3rd set with an easy 25-12 win.

Curtis finishes up 7-1 in league play and tied with Puyallup. They will play-off on Tuesday for seeding into the District Tournament. Emerald Ridge is 4-4. Our home team MVP went to Ariana Medchill and our visiting team MVP was Anna Peskie.
