RICHLAND -- Alison Alderman capped a busy first half with her goal about a minute before the break, and West Valley made the one-goal lead stand up through a scoreless second half for a 2-1 victory at Hanford on Saturday.
Alderman's shot came a few minutes after Hanford's Deanna Quadrel knotted the game at a goal each off an assist from Haille Heid. The Rams struck quickly in the CBBN 3A contest, with Sandy Hanses connecting in the first minute.
The loss leaves the Falcons in a three-way logjam for third place at 3-2 with the Rams and Eastmont, which posted a 3-2 win over Pasco.
Hanford plays unbeaten Kamiakin on Tuesday at Lampson Stadium. Eastmont plays at the league's other unbeaten, Southridge, while West Valley plays winless Sunnyside.
