SPORTS: Orting ends Port Townsend girls soccer season; other prep reports

ORTING — The Port Townsend girls soccer team’s season came to an abrupt end Thursday night.

The Redskins (5-3-0 in league, 10-6-0 overall) lost 1-0 to the Orting Cardinals in their Class 1A pigtail playoff game.

Acacia Johnson scored the game’s lone goal to put Orting ahead, and the Redskins could not come up with an answer.

Port Townsend finished the season fourth in the Olympic League as its lone 1A team.

The Redskins will graduate six seniors from the team, including Caroline Dowdle, Chelsey Hoglund, Elena Akins, Emelina Berkshire, Jennifer Grauberger and Lydia Young.

Ocosta 6, Forks 0

FORKS — The Spartans (0-14, 0-16) finished the season winless after falling to the Wildcats in their final match Thursday afternoon.

Forks played a tough defensive first half, trailing 1-0, only to allow Ocosta to find the net five more times before the game was finished.

Sierra Noles and Minki Villacana were the players of the game for the Spartans even though they were outshot 12-0.

Forks ended its season 0-16 overall but there was a big change in the way the Spartans played from the start of the season to the end.

Towards the end the Spartans were playing a tougher style of defense that most of the opponents noticed as a big improvement, Forks coach Allen Lewis said.

Volleyball Onalaska 3, Forks 0

FORKS — The Spartans (6-8, 8-9) couldn’t keep up in their final match of the season as they fell in three games Thursday evening to Onalaska 25-13, 25-11 and 25-16.

“I was proud of them,” Forks coach Jennifer Daman said. “It was real emotional.”

Casey Williams led her team with three kills and three stuffs while Brittney Decker, Whitney Fairbanks and Sydney Christiansen each had two kills.

The Spartans will lose four seniors after this season, including Decker, Fairbanks, Raven McCann and Jessica Hodges, who was injured at the start of the season.

With Thursday’s loss, the Spartans were taken out of the playoff hunt.

NEAH BAY — The Red Devils (5-1, 8-2) put the finishing touches on their second straight North Olympic League championship Thursday with a 25-20, 13-25, 25-15 and 25-22 win.
