Banged Up Beavers Struggle at Monte


After battling with league leader Montesano Thursday night on the road for about a half, the Tenino girls soccer team fell, 4-0 in the Harbor. 

The Bulldogs rotated in new players relentlessly, and a banged up Beavers squad that featured a shorter bench and players still recovering from injury and illness, couldn’t keep up. 

Montesano outshot the Beavers, 18-3, and scored in the 21st, 43rd, 49th, and 75th minutes to win the game. 

Tenino keeper Trinity Tafoya had seven saves in goal for Tenino. 

“We’re really banged up right now, but I have to commend the girls for playing through some knocks right now,” Beavers coach Dave Montgomery said. “We had a game plan for Montesano and tried to keep it tight in that first half and hopefully try to find a goal, but Montesano was able to get that goal in the first half, so we had to try and attack and find a game.”

The Beavers take on Elma next on Tuesday on the Black Top.
