Omak knocks off Quincy

Pioneers prevail in match shortened by official’s call

— Omak knocked off Quincy, 1-0, in a league match cut short Oct. 12 by an official due to harassment from a Jackrabbit fan.

“It was kind of weird,” Omak coach Chris Werner said.

Shawnee Covington pushed the ball to Haley Little, who dribbled to the 18-yard line of the goal and chipped the advancing keeper, Werner said of the score in the 53rd minute.

“We played some beautiful soccer,” he said.

Then one of the Quincy fans started yelling at an official with “some pretty foul language,” Werner said. “I couldn’t make it out from my sideline, but we had athletes and parents who said it was pretty bad.

“The fan was asked to leave three times and was slow to comply and kept yelling at the official. Then the official called the game.”

Both teams entered the fray with one league victory.

TONASKET – Tonasket relied on its experience and size to knock off Chelan, 3-1, in a Caribou Trail League match Oct. 10.

“Chelan played very tough against a bigger, stronger, more experienced Tonasket team,” Chelan coach Jim Broome said. “It was a very physical game and both teams battled hard for a full 80 minutes.”

Tonasket scored in the seventh before Chelan scored in the 25th minute for a 1-1 halftime score.

The Tigers scored nine minutes into the second half. The final Tonasket goal came in the final minute.

After the Kodiaks scored, Okanogan came back with a set play off a corner kick by Emmy Engle that Janice Romero headed home to tie the match.

Cascade ran off three straight goals, one of which ricocheted off a Kodiak in front of the goal and looped over the head of the Okanogan goalkeeper’s head.

Okanogan defense played better the second half, not giving up a score.

Romero scored on a corner kick by Aidan O’Connor to narrow the margin.

“We played a good second half, but played a little flat in the first,” Okanogan coach Dean Klepec said.
