The Kamiakin Braves rallied with three goals in the second half to beat Chiawana 3-1 in a key Mid-Columbia Conference soccer match Tuesday in Pasco.
The Riverhawks (7-4 MCC), who had won six games in a row before Tuesday, got on the board in the first half with a goal by Summer Yates. The lead held until halftime with Abby Whiston keeping a tight lid on the goal. Whiston finished with four saves.
Maddie Morgan began the flood of Kamiakin (10-0 MCC) goals, followed by Kaeri Ward with the game winner, and MiKayla Hunter scored the insurance goal.
“We had been playing really well,” Riverhawks coach Rich Zoller said. “I thought the girls did really well in the first half. The first 10, 15 minutes, we created several good scoring chances and took the lead. In the second half, we had a few breakdowns and the put pressure on you. We need to do a better job of stepping up to the challenge.”
