BL soccer team 8-1 following Coatney scoring outburst

The Bonney Lake Panthers added two more shutout victories last week and saw a rather remarkable number of goals delivered by midfielder Kaylee Coatney.

The Bonney Lake Panthers added two more shutout victories last week and saw a rather remarkable number of goals delivered by midfielder Kaylee Coatney.

The Panthers defeated Mount Tahoma 8-0 during a Thursday road contest, two days after beating the Lakes Lancers 4-0.

The twin wins pushed Bonney Lake’s record to 7-1 in Pierce County League 3A play and 8-1 overall.

Last week’s victories were part of a high-scoring, four-game stretch. During league victories over Lincoln, Spanaway Lake, Lakes and Mount Tahoma, the Panthers found the net 26 times and Coatney, a sophomore, accounted for 11 of those goals.

The reigning PCL Offensive Player of the Year had hat tricks the first two games of the stretch and added all four of her team’s tallies against the Lakes Lancers. She wasted little time during Thursday’s trouncing of Mount Tahoma, scoring in the game’s first minute; others then did serious damage as Bonney Lake pounded in six first-half goals.

Coatney missed a pair of Panther games while nursing an injury. But in the seven games she appeared in, she scored 16 goals. That puts her ahead of last year’s pace, when she scored 26 times.

Through games of last week, Bonney Lake sat second in the PCL standings, trailing only the Stadium Tigers. The Panthers took on Wilson High Tuesday and will hit the road Thursday to challenge the Bethel Braves. Next Tuesday, Oct. 17, provides Bonney Lake the opportunity to avenge its only loss of the season, with Stadium High coming to town; game time is 7:30 p.m. on the Bonney Lake High campus.
