The Chiawana girls soccer team erased a two-goal halftime deficit to defeat rival Richland 3-2 on Tuesday at Bomber Field in a Mid-Columbia Conference showdown.

Trailing 2-0 at the break, Molly Sullivan scored in the 47th minute and Braydey Hodgins scored in the 59th and 71st minutes to rally Chiawana.

“That was one of the best halfs of soccer I’ve seen our team play since I’ve been at Chiawana,” said Rich Zoller, who is in his fifth season at the school. “It was a totally different team in the second half. They came out and played like a team and fought hard.

“That first goal from Molly was huge to set the tone. That gave us some momentum and we were able to build off of that.”

Tate Kautzky scored in the second minute for Richland, while Hayley Deen added a goal off a free kick in the 19th.

Scoring—1, Richland, Tate Kautzky (Samantha Heilman), 2:00; 2, Richland, Hayley Deen, 19:00; 3, Chiawana, Molly Sullivan (Kaylee Leavins), 47:00; 4, Chiawana, Braydey Hodgins (Sydney Virgen), 59:00; 5, Chiawana, Hodgins (Alexis Stephenson), 71:00.

Pasco 2, Kennewick: Megan Zimmerman scored on a cross from Abby Buckinberger in the 20th minute, and Angie Crutchfield cleaned up a mess in front of the goal off a corner kick eight minutes into the second half to lead the Bulldogs to a MCC win at Edgar Brown Stadium.

Pasco outshot Kennewick 10-0, and coach Justin Carey said his team played good possession ball, something they needed.

Carey added that the Lions are much improved and gave his club a good run.

KAMIAKIN 1 SOUTHRIDGE 0 (OT): Parker Lee scored the game’s only goal 1:30 into overtime as the Braves held off the Sun in an MCC match at Lampson Stadium.

“I would say Southridge dominated the first half and Kamiakin the second half,” said Braves coach Chris Erikson. “It was very fun for the spectators and very nerve wracking for the coaches. Our defense played very well and both goalies had excellent games.”

Southridge keeper Mercedes Haberling finished with 14 saves, while Erin Lesberg had five for Kamiakin.

Scoring—1, K, Parker Lee (Rilee Castilla), 81:30. Shots—S 6, K 15. Saves—S, Mercedes Haberling 14. K, Erin Lesberg 5.
