Mary Swing, 18 was pushed to the ground.

Goldendale's soccer team scored their first goals of the season in an 8-4 loss at Mabton, last week. It was a good pick-me-up for the Lady Timberwolves who had been pressed to get shots on goal and had just finished a brutal stretch of three games against top competition, including a Tuesday 10-0 loss to La Salle.

Not only did Goldendale score the first team goal of the year, it was also a day for a hat trick by Mary Swing.

The Vikings took a two goal lead at 16:48 and goalie Neda Maghsadii fought off two more attacks before Swing put the Wolves on the board at 20:56. Mabton answered with two more goals to end the half.

The Vikings put the match away with three goals to start the second half. Teresa Dunlap got the second Goldendale goal at 62:10. Mabton scored once more and then Swing went to work to earn the hat trick with a pair of goals at 73:19 and 78:21.

Saturday's opponent, Cle Elum-Roslyn was also looking for its first league win. Goldendale couldn't find any momentum from the Mabton match and lost a physical battle 7-0 to the Warriors.

Goldendale traveled to Naches Valley on Tuesday and will look for a win at Granger on Oct. 10, game time 11 a.m.
