Victories to savor
CHS girls soccer bests Skyview and Battle Ground
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
The Camas girls soccer players had been waiting years to defeat Skyview and Battle Ground. They accomplished both feats last week.
Emily Ponce and Jamie Carter delivered the goals that helped the Papermakers trip up the Storm 2-1 Sept. 25, at Doc Harris Stadium. It was the first time the Camas girls beat Skyview since Sept. 16, 2008.
Freshman wing Anyssa DeVera mailed the perfect cross to Ponce in the middle. The senior blasted the ball past the opposing goalkeeper and into the back of the net for a goal in the 14th minute.
"I got the right touch on it and put it in the far post," Ponce said. "Against a tough team like Skyview, it definitely set the tone. It was great to watch the ball go off my foot and into the net, and then turn around and see everybody cheering."
