The following is a release from Hazen soccer:

Hazen Soccer took the short trip up fourth tonight for a match up with the 2A defending state champions Liberty

Patriots. The Lady Highlanders did something they haven’t done in six fall season— took points. The game ended in

a 1-1 draw.

“This has been a one-sided rivalry. We finally scored on them last year. This year we got a draw,” said Hazen

coach Ken Matthews. “I like this trend.”

Liberty found the scoring column first with a goal 16 minutes into the first half. The goal came off a corner

kick that didn’t get cleared.

“A coach’s nightmare,” said Matthews. “But we weren’t being outplayed. The girls were controlling play for long

stretches.

Trailing 1-0 into the second half, Hazen Soccer got a corner of their own. Off the Liberty save, senior captain and

mid Madison Kem found sophomore defender Alex Reed to level at 32 minutes. Both teams have several chances

that didn’t find the net, but the game ended 1-1.

Varsity’s Woman of the Match was junior keeper Avery Hanneman. She had seven saves, at least three of the

spectacular variety.

Hazen’s JV also got a 1-1 draw. Amanda De Boldt had the score assisted by Karlena Tran. JV’s Woman of the

Match was keeper Avery Pruitt.

“Yes, you read that correctly. We have two keepers both named Avery,” Matthews said. “We call them Avery

squared.”

Hazen next travels to Wenatchee to take on central Washington powerhouse Eastmont on Saturday.

“They’re going to be a handful,” Matthews said.

Next Games:

Saturday, Sept. 8: Hazen Junior Varsity plays Eastmont at Eastmont High School at 11 a.m.

Saturday, Sept. 8: Hazen Varsity plays Eastmont at Eastmont High School at 1 p.m.
