Goldendale senior Lene Riggers grapples for control of the ball with a Naches player during last Thursday's game in Goldendale.

The Goldendale girls soccer team starts the second half of the South Central Athletic Conference schedule the same way the season started, playing two of the toughest teams in the league in less than a week.

Tuesday's contest against La Salle marked the start of the second half of the SCAC soccer slate, and the Wolves played without senior Lene Riggers, who hurt her shoulder in last week's game against Naches.

On Tuesday however, the Lightning were able to get past the Wolves 12-0.

The Lightning, led by head coach Felix Hernandez, sit atop the SCAC West standings having not lost a district game all season and have surrendered just one goal to a conference opponent. Goldendale and La Salle opened the SCAC season back on Sept. 6 in Union Gap with the Lightning winning 10-0.

Things don't get any easier for the Timberwolves when they make the long trip to Cle Elum for a 6 p.m. game on Thursday.

Cle Elum, which is 4-2 in league play as of Tuesday morning, recently had junior Grace Terrill honored as one of WIAA's Athletes of the Week. The Warriors knocked off the Timberwolves 12-1 on Sept. 11 in Goldendale.

After visiting Cle Elum, the Wolves will be back at home and playing on an unusual day. They host the Granger Spartans on Monday, the only Monday game of the season for the Timberwolves.
