The White River Hornets head into playoff soccer action tonight, Wednesday, taking on the Kingston High crew on neutral turf in Sumner.
Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Sunset Chev Stadium.
The Hornets enter postseason play as the No. 3 squad from the South Puget Sound League 2A, having compiled a record of 7-4-1 in league play, 8-6-1 overall.
Kingston comes in as the No. 5 seed from the Olympic League.
Tonight’s game is a loser-out affair.
If White River is victorious, the Hornets will next play Saturday at Highline Stadium in Burien. Their opponent would be the Interlake Saints from the KingCo 3A/2A Conference.
White River wrapped up the regular season with two wins last week – a 2-1 victory Oct. 25 over Franklin Pierce and a 7-0 pasting of Washington Thursday night.
Against Franklin Pierce, Morgan Clough had the Hornets’ only goal as the teams played to a regulation tie. White River then won in a shootout.
Against Washington High, seven Hornets entered the scoring column. Contributing goals were Regan Speyer, Clough, Cassidy France, Ashley Powell, Sophie Wesner, Chloe Sharp and Hanna Rhodes.
