Basin roundup: Moses Lake drops a pair of games

Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake boys soccer is still finding its footing, so to speak.

The Chiefs lost two games to Greater Spokane League opponents Gonzaga Prep and Ferris. The Bullpups and Saxons both won 2-0.

Moses Lake struggled to mount an attack against the rangy Ferris defense, with its best chance coming on a free kick in the third minute. Forward Anthony Cortez’s offering was deflected by the Saxons’ wall and saved in front of the goal.

Alessandro Contos scored in the ninth minute. Ferris protected its lead throughout the game before adding another goal in the 47th minute.

Moses Lake plays its last non-league game Tuesday, 7 p.m., against Lewis and Clark.

Royal 1, Quincy 1

ROYAL CITY — Royal scored late in the second half to salvage a 1-1 with Class 2A Quincy.

The Jacks’ Yordi Coronel scored in the 10th minute.

“First half Quincy came out strong and put immediate pressure on our midfield,” Royal head coach Jens Jensen said. “Being the first game of the year and trying to find a system that works for us, we were unable to get any rhythm and looked disjointed at best.”

Eventually, Alex Delgado played a cross to Juan Ojeda who scored the equalizer.

Othello 2, Naches Valley 1

NACHES — Juan Tapia scored in the 70th minute to break a 1-1 tie and send Othello to a 2-1 win over Naches Valley in its season-opener.

Tapia scored on a rebounded penalty kick,

Juan Orozco put Othello up 1-0 in the first half before the Rangers responded to tie the game.
