‘Cats crunch Cascade / Soccer

Recovering from two tough losses, the Oak Harbor High School soccer team went on the road and crushed Cascade 3-0 Saturday, Sept. 14, in Everett.

The Wildcats picked up “strong play from a lot of girls,” coach Mike Lonborg said as Oak Harbor (0-1, 1-2) collected its first win of the season. “Peyton Rhyne and Mikhaela Cortes both had nice games.”

Oak Harbor struck quickly when Cortez headed in Natalie Pluch’s corner kick just three minutes into the match.

The Wildcats made it 2-0 before halftime when Rhyne converted a penalty kick.

Morgan Lamar finished the scoring with a “nasty” left-foot goal, according to Lonborg.

Oak Harbor plays two more road games this week, starting at Cedarcrest (1-0, 1-0-1) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17.
