Gabbie Brocker scored two goals, and Summit earned a spot in the Class 5A girls soccer state semifinals with a 4-0 home win over No. 7 Corvallis on Saturday.
The No. 2 Storm (14-2) took the lead in the eighth minute when Haley Tobiason took a corner kick and Maggi McElrath headed the ball into the net. In the 31st minute, Brocker scored her first goal off a cross by Piper Flannery to put Summit ahead 2-0 heading into halftime.
Brocker also scored the next goal, this time after Alexandra Walker pushed the ball down the field to Molly Day, who then crossed it to Brocker.
With three minutes left in the game, Quin Fraley made a huge throw-in from the sideline that bounced over the Corvallis keeper, and Molly Day stepped in to put the ball in the back of the net.
Summit coach Jamie Brock said Capra Williams played well in goal, even making a one-handed save on Aja Bumpus’ shot to keep the Spartans off the scoreboard and give Summit its sixth straight shutout and 12th this season.
The Storm (14-2) will host No. 3 Crescent Valley (14-0-1) in a state semifinal match Tuesday.
“They’ve only let in four goals all season, so they have some pretty good players in the back (of the field),” Brock said of the Raiders, who beat Ridgeview 2-0 Friday in the quarterfinals.
Sandy 5, Bend 2: SANDY — Two quick goals in the first 10 minutes gave the No. 4 Pioneers the early lead, and they led 3-0 at halftime in a Class 5A quarterfinal match. The No. 5 Lava Bears came out stronger in the second half, though, getting goals from Ashley Hillman in the 57th minute, assisted by Makenzie Jerome, and Kylee Roath in the 63rd minute, assisted by Hillman. “In the second half we battled and played a much better game,” said Bend coach Gavin Meyers. Marly Salveter scored four goals for Sandy, which advances to the semifinals Tuesday against North Eugene. Bend finished the season 10-4-1.
Bend 3, Hermiston 0: Colin Brown put the No. 6 Lava Bears ahead in a Class 5A quarterfinal match with a penalty kick in the 25th minute after his first attempt, which was saved by the Hermiston goalkeeper, was called off because the keeper left his line too early. Parker Hollenbeck added to the Bend lead in the 60th minute with an assist from Calvan Berteau, and E.G. Pierce scored on a set piece with an assist from Isaac Kocurek-Orr in the 65th. The Lava Bears will travel to No. 2 Corvallis for a state semifinal match Tuesday.
Brookings-Harbor 2, Madras 0: BROOKINGS — In a rematch of a semifinal last season, the White Buffaloes were shut out in a Class 4A state quarterfinal match, and their season ended with their first loss of the year. The Bruins scored early in the first half, then scored again early in the second half. Madras had two opportunities for goals that bounced off the post, according to Buffs coach Clark Jones. The fourth-seeded Bruins advanced to take on No. 9 Newport in the semifinals Tuesday. Fifth-seeded Madras finished the season 12-1-2. “This has been a fun team,” Jones said. “It’s been one of the most cohesive groups we’ve had. Everybody really stepped up.”
