Goldendale soccer falls to Zillah, Highland to close out season


November 1, 2017

Another season has come and gone in which the Timberwolves soccer team wasn't able to record a win.

Goldendale, coming off a tough three-game stretch against La Salle, Naches, and Cle Elum, finished up the season with a 4-0 loss on the road to Highland on Oct. 24 before falling 3-1 at Zillah last Thursday.

Although they weren't able to come away with a win in either of their last two games, Goldendale did turn in an improved effort against the Leopards.

In the team's first meeting, Goldendale fell 6-1 on Oct. 5 here in town with junior Lene Riggers scoring the team's lone goal.

This time around they allowed three fewer goals to their rival with senior Alyssa Simmons scoring a goal for the Timberwolves.

Although the team graduates six seniors – Mikayla Hagedorn, Addy Enyeart, Taylor Wells, Alyssa Merry, Simmons, and Arin Ontiveros – Goldendale should be able to bounce back with a big crop of underclassmen.

The 15 combined freshmen and sophomores and four juniors this year should only get better and no doubt be able to get the Wolves in the win column next season.
