Mid-Columbia Conference soccer teams take aim at GSL

By the Tri-City HeraldMay 6, 2013 

The Kennewick Lions learned a great lesson about the Greater Spokane League last year.

After beating Mt. Spokane handily in a regional opener in Spokane, the Wildcats turned around and knocked Kennewick out at Lampson Stadium, ending the Lions’ season.

The lesson: Don’t take the GSL for granted.

That’s why Kennewick coach Brian Gochoel won’t let the Lions (13-3) get a big head about facing North Central (1-10) in the 3A District 5/8 regional tournament at 5 p.m. today at Lampson Stadium.

“They work hard and get numbers behind the ball,” Gochoel said. “We need to finish the opportunities we create. If not, all bets are off, and it’ll be a dogfight.”

Mt. Spokane (6-8) at Hanford (11-6), 5 p.m.: The Falcons missed a chance to win an MCC title, but they’re still hungry for a deep postseason run.
Kamiakin (9-6) vs. University (6-8), at Spokane Falls CC, 7 p.m.: Upstart Braves have won four in a row.
Sunnyside at Shadle Park (7-10), Spokane Falls CC, 5 p.m.

4A regionals

Ferris (11-4) at Richland (10-5), 6 p.m.
: Bombers are looking for first trip to state since 2003.
Lewis & Clark (13-5) at Walla Walla (3-11), 6 p.m.: Nobody said you needed a winning record to reach state. The Blue Devils were a tough check this year.
