YAKIMA -- Paul Martinez scored two goals, and Alvaro Licea added a pair of assists to lift Kennewick to a 7-2 CBBN 3A win Tuesday over West Valley.
The Lions led 2-0 at the half but added five goals in the second half.
"We actually didn't play very well. There were wet conditions. It was our second road trip," said Kennewick coach Brian Gochoel. "We certainly have room to improve. We need to buckle down against Southridge (on Saturday)."
Gochoel played three goalkeepers against the Rams. Henry Hernandez made two saves and didn't allow a goal in the first half. Jordan Powers and Jose Rodriguez each played 20 minutes in the second half, making a save apiece.
Never miss a local story.
"Creating healthy competition within the squad helps us prepare for a tough league season," Gochoel said.
