The Chiawana High School girls soccer team had a response for Kamiakin every time the Braves scored Saturday at Lampson Stadium.
Chiawana extended the match beyond regulation, thanks to JuliAnna Ventura’s goal in the 72nd minute. After two scoreless overtime periods, the Riverhawks prevailed 4-3 with a 4-2 shootout victory.
“We’re really happy,” Chiawana coach Rich Zoller said. “Especially coming back from behind three different times just shows that our team has a lot of heart.”
The Riverhawks improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the Mid-Columbia Conference ahead of Tuesday’s home contest against Southridge. Kamiakin fell to 2-1, 1-1.
