EHS SOCCER: Enumclaw suffers two close league losses

Last week wasn’t kind to the Enumclaw High soccer team, which dropped a pair of South Puget Sound League 3A contests and failed to score a goal in the process.

The two losses pushed Enumclaw’s record to 2-2 in league play and 3-6-1 overall. The break-even mark was good for third place in the SPSL 3A.

Thursday’s loss was a tough one, as the Hornets made the short trip down state Route 410 to challenge the second-place crew from Bonney Lake. Enumclaw gave up a goal to the Panthers’ Lindsey Hanbidge in the sixth minute, then played the Panthers even for the ensuing 74 minutes, trudging home with the 1-0 loss.

Playing at Auburn Mountainview Oct. 4, Enumclaw fell behind 1-0 shortly before halftime and couldn’t find the net against the Lions. The hosts added an insurance goal in the 74th minute.

The Hornets were looking to return to the victory column Tuesday when they hosted the last-place Lakes Lancers. Thursday, Enumclaw makes its longest league road trip, heading to Purdy to challenge the Peninsula Seahawks.
