h , ra - September 26, 2012 SPORTS Page 19 Huskies down La Pine in girls soccer Sky-Era opener Sweet Home 3, La Pine 0 The Huskies girls soccer team earned its second win of the season 3-0 hosting La Pine on Thursday. "We're playing better," said Coach Ramiro Santana. "I wish we could have a lot more pre- season games just to get the team better established and the pieces put together."

Morgan Haley Kent goes high to block a ball - and a La Pine opponent- in the Huskies' win over La Pine. Defender Katy Currey works to clear the ball against the La Pine attack. But that didn't stop the Huskies from putting together a win in its league opener. The Huskies scored two goals in the first half, the first from Haley Kent and the second from Alana Long. Katie Virtue scored the third goal in the second half. "All three of them can do that any time," Santana said. Kent worked the field all game instead of spending half of it at goal, Santana said. "This was her first time out in the field." Sabrina Davis, who usually plays defense when Kent'sin the goal, was hurt playing against Central. She could still play goalie, so she spent the entire game there, notching about a dozen saves against about the same number of shots. The Huskies took 23 shots on goal, Santana said. "We were controlling it most of the time." The Hawks had their opportunities though, Santana said, and Davis stopped four tough shots from hitting the net. "Our defense played very solid," he said.

Sisters 3, Sweet Home 0 Sweet Home played even with the hosts for the first part of the game, Meier said. "It was nice to see them come out that way," she said. "Just about every point was matched and we stuck with them. Then we got down a little bit. We just have a little bit of a mental block with Sis- ters.'" The. Outlaws went on to a 25- 15, 25-12, 25-13 win. Sisters Tournament Due to smoke, the Outlaws hosted their tournament at Red- mond High School, where Sweet Home came out strong, splitting two games with Stayton in pool play, then beating North Bend 2-0 before splitting with Henley.
