WRHS SOCCER: France scores two in shutout

Looking to tighten the race in South Puget Sound League 2A soccer circles, the White River Hornets fell short Thursday night, dropping a 2-0 decision to the league-leading Sumner Spartans.

The loss evened White River’s SPSL 2A mark at 3-3 while the Spartans kept their record unblemished at 6-0.

The game’s first goal came in the 21st minute off the foot of prolific scorer Kaylie Rozell. She found herself in a one-on-one situation in front of the net and lofted a shot over the head of Hornet keeper Kylie Englebert. The Spartans’ sealed the deal with a Megan Fenton goal at 75 minutes.

Things had gone much better Oct. 4, when White River took to the road and waltzed to a 4-0 victory over Washington High. The level of competition had something to do with the outcome, as the winless Patriots share last-place honors with Steilacoom.

Cassidy France scored two goals and had two assists during the road win, while Ashley Powell and Morgan Clough added a goal each. Englebert and Sam Kelley shared time in goal to earn the shutout.

White River was slated to play Clover Park Tuesday, but the Warriors have not been fielding a team. Thursday, the Hornets travel to Steilacoom.
