EHS/WRHS SOCCER: Cary gives Enumclaw early lead in victory

All the scoring came early Thursday night, when White River High hosted Enumclaw High in nonleague soccer action.

Enumclaw, a 2-1 winner, jumped on the scoreboard first, with Lauren Cary doing the honors in the fourth minute. White River’s Nicole Partlow tied the contest three minutes later and, in the 10th minute, Nadine Huff provided the game-winner for Enumclaw.

The victory was the first of the season for EHS, which had previously dropped nonleague games to Skyline High and Sumner. Coach Shawn Tobius said his crew played a good first half Sept. 7 against visiting Sumner and went into intermission tied 1-1. His Hornets self-destructed in the second half, Tobius said, allowing the Spartans to leave town with a 3-2 win.

Both EHS goals were scored by Emily Meeks.

White River fell to 1-1 with the home loss to Enumclaw.

The season opener featured a wild, 9-7 victory at Orting Sept. 7.

The host Cardinals scored in just the third minute of the contest, but White River answered with four goals of its own in a 25-minute span. Doing the honors were Ashley Powell, who found the net twice, Cassidy France and Kinsey Gandel. After the Cardinals made it 4-2, White River received a goal from Amber Inderbitzin to close out the first half.

White River’s second half featured goals by Morgan Brown, Chloe Sharp, Powell and France.
