PREP ROUNDUP: Ashland girls soccer team remains unbeaten

EUGENE — Sixth-ranked Ashland took a little while to find its rhythm Friday but once the Grizzlies did, they were off and running in a 4-2 win over Churchill in Midwestern League girls soccer.

Ashland’s MaKenna Page broke a scoreless deadlock with a goal in the 35th minute on a header following a nice setup by fellow senior Emmeline Clark.

The Grizzlies (7-0-4, 5-0-1 MWL) then saw Clark and junior Ini Hammond simply take over the game.

Clark found the back of the net in the opening minute of the second half on an assist from Hammond to put Ashland in stellar position to remain unbeaten.

When Churchill (3-6-1, 2-2-1) narrowed the gap with a goal by Sela Freeman in the 53rd minute, Ashland didn’t flinch. Once again, Hammond stepped up with a goal in the 61st minute off an assist by Clark to regain a two-goal advantage.

Clark scored Ashland’s final goal off an assist by Hammond in the 73rd minute.

The Lancers tacked on a goal in the final minute against Zadi Burke, who finished with three quality saves.

NORTH MEDFORD 4, ROSEBURG 1: North Medford freshman Olivia Boger scored twice in the first half and assisted another goal to help the Black Tornado flip the script on Roseburg, who beat North 4-1 earlier in the season.

Isabella Driskell set up Boger in the 25th minute and then scored her own goal one minute later to make it 2-0 in favor of North Medford (5-6, 2-5 SWC).

Roseburg (3-8-1, 2-6) scored off a free kick to trim the deficit but Boger answered with a goal six minutes later to give North a 3-1 lead at the break.

Malisa Kuitert’s successful penalty kick was the lone goal of the second half.

ROSEBURG 3, NORTH MEDFORD 2: At Roseburg, Colson Rumrey tallied two second-half goals for North Medford but it wasn’t enough to overtake Roseburg in Southwest Conference play.

Rumrey’s first goal came at around the 60-minute mark to cut Roseburg’s lead to 2-1 but it was quickly countered by the Indians (6-5-1, 3-4-1 SWC), who went up back up by two scores.

Rumrey, a center back, connected again with three minutes left to play on a setup by Koby Ibarra, who assisted on both scores for the Black Tornado (4-5-2, 2-3-2).

ASHLAND 3, CHURCHILL 0: At Eugene, three Ashland players found the back of the net and the Grizzlies posted a shutout on the road.

Lucas Poareo Davidson played a part in both goals, as the senior took a goal kick leading to the Reddish goal, then had a long throw-in that Graham collected and scored from.
