Wahluke 2, Granger 0: Alex Anaya and Julio Maldanado scored to lead the Warriors to a District 5 elimination game victory Friday in Mattawa.
Wahluke (12-5) will now play Highland in another elimination game Tuesday in Cowiche, with a state berth on the line.
On Friday, Alan Caro made four saves to continue his strong play of late.
“Our plan is to play them well and continue to rely on Alan in the back for us,” Wahluke coach Arthur de Victoria said. “He’s been phenomenal the second half of the season.”
Highland defeated Wahluke twice in the regular season, winning 2-0 both times.
