Luciano Ontiveros scored the equalizer, Xander Flannery made seven saves in goal and the Kennewick High School soccer team survived its trip to Walla Walla with a 2-1 shootout win over the Blue Devils Thursday in Mid-Columbia Conference play.
It was the second consecutive shootout win for Kennewick (12-3, 10-3), which got successful PKs from Jairo Villasenor, Juan Cruz, Jason Cortes, Emir Velic and Eddie Castillo.
Alexis Galindo scored the goal in regulation for Walla Walla and was assisted by Edwin Romero.
The Blue Devils and Lions play again Saturday at Lampson Stadium in the regular season finale. Kennewick could still win the league championship if it beats Walla Walla, and Pasco loses to Southridge.
