Lady Braves soccer team blanks Mount Vernon Christian Keeps pace with Friday Harbor
Bill Reynolds


The La Conner High girls’ soccer team left nothing to chance in its meeting with Mount Vernon Christian last week.
The Lady Braves, locked in a tight battle with Friday Harbor for the top spot in conference standings, blanked MVC 4-0 in a key road test Thursday.
With the win, La Conner improved to 8-1 in the NW2B title race and kept pace with the Lady Wolverines, who also entered the week having won eight of nine league matches.
This was La Conner’s second straight shutout win. On Oct. 12 they triumphed 5-0 against Concrete.
For La Conner goalkeeper Sarah Hastings, the win over MVC marked her fifth clean sheet of the campaign and second against the Lady Hurricanes. She and her La Conner teammates posted a 1-0 victory in a match with Mount Vernon Christian last month.
Emma Lee provided all the offense La Conner needed this time around. She found the net four times.
Still, it was a true team effort for head coach Christian Warman’s club.
Warman was pleased with La Conner’s creativity and deft passing, which allowed the victors to press the action throughout.
The Lady Braves, 8-3 overall, resume their league slate tomorrow (Thursday) at Orcas Island. The Lady Vikings entered the week 2-6 in league play.
La Conner returns to Whittaker Field Oct. 24 for what will be a key pairing with Friday Harbor. Next Tuesday’s home match is 4 p.m.
La Conner and Friday Harbor have split two clashes thus far this fall. The Lady Braves claimed a 3-1 win Sept. 20. Friday Harbor won 2-1 two weeks later.
