Walla Walla 4, Kennewick 2: Alexis Medina scored two goals as the Blue Devils handed the visiting Lions their first loss of the season Saturday in a Mid-Columbia Conference matchup.
“Mike Washington has his boys playing real well. They keep possession and match up well with us,” Kennewick coach Brian Gochoel said. “We’re certainly a good side, but possibly lacked a little focus going into the second half of the season since we ran the table in the first half.
“It’s certainly better to take a loss here and eat a little humble pie than to lose in the playoffs and be done for the season.”
Ramiro Chavez scored twice for Kennewick, both off assists from Alvaro Licea.
