Women's Soccer Off to a Strong Start
(Aug. 30) Paige Surber scored at the four minute mark and Highline never looked back, constantly pressuring the the visiting Green River Gators as the Thunderbirds coasted to a 5-1 victory (details) in the season's first league game.
After giving up the initial goal under a gray weepy sky, Green River managed to keep the contest close until Highline's Madison Gale capped off the first half with a goal at the 45 minute mark, and then Suber scored her second goal one minute into the second half. Monica Whitfield of Green River got the Gators on the board with a goal at 70 minutes, but two goals by Kylee Inman-Wolfe at the final ten minutes firmly settled the game in Highline's favor. Tessa Bruland and Amber Nielson shared goalkeeping duties for the Thunderbirds.
WIth the win, Highline improves to 3-0 for the season and 1-0 in league play, with an away game at Edmonds on Sept. 5 next on the schedule.
Under new head coach Steve Mohn, the Thunderbirds shook off a 4-1 loss (details) to Clark on Aug. 27 by playing to a 2-2 draw (details) against Walla Walla on Aug. 27 in a pair of friendlies at the Starfire Soccer Complex.
