SPORTS SECTION 2 CHENEY FREE PRESS ] 3 Thursday, May 7, 2015 soccer. continued from page 1 Cheney wrapped up its regular season with a pair of shutout wins, beating Clarkston 5-0 on Senior Day, April 28, and following that by blanking fourth-place West Valley 2-0 April 30. Oliver Smith had a pair of goals and two as- sists against the Bantams, putting the Blackhawks on the board in the 10th minute and finishing the scoring with a goal in the 77th. Cruz Gall and Wil- liam Bassedas also scored, and Cheney "It's really about them and what they want to get done. Now, we need to step it up because we don't want to go home." CHS head coach Mark Kiver collected an own goal in the 25th minute. Cheney out shot Clarkston 10-1, with goal- keeper Kameron Gall collecting the only save. Thursday the Black- hawks wasted no time putting the Eagles in a hole, scoring on a penalty kick by Cruz Gall in the 13th minute and mak- ing it 2-0 just before the half on Smith's third goal of the. week, assisted by Noah Prophet. Neither team scored in a second half that was notable for the number of penalty cards, as things got a little more physical and vocal between the two schools. Kiver said they talked about this at half time, re- minding the team to focus on their game and not the comments of players and fans, something he made sure of by regularly sub- stituting players to keep them out of hot-button situations. Despite this, Kiver felt it was Cheney's most complete game of the season. "We could've won it 1- 0 and I would've still thought the same thing," he added. Kiver be- lieves the Blackhawks are finally getting to the point of not only playing their best soc- cer, but also leaving room for even more improvement. Cheney (9-3, 10-5-1) won three of four games in the third round of league play, all shut- outs, with the lone loss a 1-0 defeat at Pullman. Still, the Blackhawks aren't overlooking a Clarkston team that, de- spite having just one win, has an unorthodox playing style that could help it manufacture an upset in the lose-and-go- home game. Kiver said he and his coaches have done all they can, and it's really in the hands of the players. "It's really about them and what they want to get done," he said. "Now, we need to step it up because we don't want to go home." John McCal- lure can be reached at continued from page 1 Nick Isherwood making two saves. Against Deer Park (0-7, 0-10), the Cardinals again fell behind on a goal at 14 minutes, but goals three minutes apart from Steven Robo and Spangler got the rout started and Medical Lake reeled off seven of the next eight scores - three from Spangler and two each from Robo and Rosenbeck and a single from Gabe Mangione. Robo usually plays defense, but the Deer Park game allowed Higgins the ability to move play- ers around into different roles. "He's a great soc- cer player and I wish I could get him out of the defense and more touches," Higgins said. Medical Lake used three different keepers versus Deer Park, Sam Matt who made two saves while Isherwood and Brendan Satcher had one each. "We got up on Deer Park pretty early," Hig- gins said. Once again, that allowed him to get some of tl e non-starters valuable playing time.

Rosa's Anthony Aguilera tripled to right cen- terfield in the top of the second inning to open the scoring, bringing home Brent Keith and Jalijah Meacham for an early 2-0 lead, and later scoring on a wild pitch. In the third, Karl Barsness singled to center to score Carson Jeffries, and eventually came home to score to put Rosa's up 5-0. Cheney Free Press finally got on the board in the bottom of the inning on Jakeb Vallance's single to right, scoring Charles Gerber, and scored when the next batter up, Logan Hooe, doubled to left. Tyler Ashcroft led off the fourth with a walk, and Curran Moore dropped a single just inside the left field line to give Cheney Free Press two runners on with nobody out.
