The soccer rendition of the Battle of the Bridge brought together an undefeated White River team and an Enumclaw squad sporting a lone league loss.
After 80 minutes of play the evening of Sept. 21, the standings were much the same. Leaving the Enumclaw Expo Center following a 1-1 draw, White River had a 4-0-2 overall record and EHS was a couple of steps back at 3-1-1 in league play, 3-2-1 overall.
White River played again Thursday night, defeating the Steilacoom Sentinels 2-0 to push their record to 5-0-2 overall; all of the Hornets’ games have been against South Puget Sound League 2A opponents. The Buckley girls faced their biggest test of the season last night (Tuesday), hitting the road to face the Fife Trojans, also 5-0.
In the process of remaining undefeated after seven games, White River had outscored its opponents 40-3 while posting four shutouts.
Enumclaw also took to the pitch Tuesday night, traveling to Orting to face the Cardinals.
When the Plateau rivals squared off last week, the first half was a back-and-forth, scoreless affair. White River cracked the scoreboard early in the second half when Claire Carter scored off a Morgan Greene assist. In the 64th minute, EHS tied things thanks to a goal by Emma Henshaw, assisted by Josie Schampera.
The two Plateau schools will meet again Oct. 25 on the White River High campus.
