HERMISTON - Mountain View fired 27 shots on goal and five of them found their way into the net Saturday as the Cougars defeated the Hermiston Bulldogs 5-0 in an Intermountain Conference girls soccer game.
Despite the loss, Hermiston coach John Larson said his team showed some positives.
"We probably played about as well as we could have but you always hoped you could have done a little more," he said. "We played a little better than we did against Summit (Friday)."
The Cougars led 2-0 at halftime and added three more goals in the second half.
"(Hermiston's) Lacey (Neddo) played an excellent game," Larson said. "She placed a lot of balls where they needed to be placed."
Hermiston (0-3) travels to Hood River Tuesday and is in the middle of a stretch that sees the Bulldogs playing five games in nine days.
Summit 6, Pendleton 0
PENDLETON - The Summit Storm girls soccer team made the most of its swing through Eastern Oregon by defeating the Pendleton Bucks 6-0 Saturday. The victory over Pendleton came on the heels of a 4-0 shutout of Hermiston Friday.
Pendleton coach Matt Yoshioka said his girls played hard, but were a little deflated when the Storm jumped out in front in the first half.
"Our girls played tough up until about two goals were scored on us," he said. " After the two goals they mentally took themselves out of the game."
Yoshioka said his team is improving, though it may be difficult to gauge against a team like Summit.
"We played better today than we did (Friday) night," Yoshioka said. "The biggest thing for me was we were quick to the ball. They gave 100 percent the whole time and the score could have been worse but it wasn't."
The Bucks fell to 3-3 overall and 1-2 in the Intermountain Conference.
Pendleton resumes IMC play Friday at Bend.
Riverside 2, Ontario 2
BOARDMAN - Riverside tied Ontario 2-2 Saturday in a Special District 7 girls soccer game.
"We had a very strong first half and controlled the ball well," Riverside coach Erin Andreason said of her team, which is 0-2-1 in league play and 0-3-1 overall.
Riverside's goals came from Faviola Macias in the first half and teammate Mayra Colin on the second half.
"Ontario put a lot of pressure on our goal keeper and made it a very even match in the second half," Andreason said.
Andreason lauded Riverside goalie Regan Roberts, who stopped nine of 11 shots on goal by the Tigers.
Riverside hosts The Dalles at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
