EVERETT – Two of the Wesco South’s finest girls soccer offenses went to battle Thursday night at Kamiak High School.
The Jackson Timberwolves and Kamiak Knights entered the game tied for second in the Wesco South and averaging more than two goals a game, but it was the reigning South champion Timberwolves who prevailed with a 3-1 victory.
“It was a pressure test. We were excited about the game and knew that Kamiak was scoring goals,” Jackson head coach Mike Bartley said.
Caitlin Naethe put Jackson on the board in the 23rd minute and Kristi Kingma and Sara O’Neal added insurance goals late in the game giving the Timberwolves a commanding 3-0 lead.
Kingma and O’Neal both scored on assists from Laura Hernandez.
Hernandez, a sophomore, has eight assists this season and has played a crucial part in Jackson’s early season success.
“Everything comes off her foot. She’s got the ability to cross a ball or hit a dead ball,” Bartley said.
Kingma’s goal was scored on a corner kick and O’Neal scored on a dead ball.
“We really executed our restarts,” Bartley added.
Bartley also commended his defense for slowing down Kamiak’s offense.
“I’m very proud of my defense, they played really well tonight,” the fourth-year coach said.
Kamiak (3-2-0 overall) scored in the 78th minute when Ashley Hermes scored on a Kelli Stewart pass.
“Kamiak played very well and were very aggressive,” Bartley said.
The 4A Timberwolves (4-1-0) moved into sole possession of second place in the Wesco South behind Shorecrest, a 3A school.
