By The Chronicle
ADNA — Jordan Swenson made the game-winning goal in a shootout to lift the Pirates to a 3-2 win over Life Christian here in a Central 2B League girls soccer game on Wednesday.
Life Christian scored first, but was matched in the 35th minute on a penalty kick goal from Payton Aselton for a tie game at halftime.
The Eagles once again scored early in the second half to take the lead, but Aselton scored again, this time on a free kick in the 60th minute.
In the shootout, Aselton, Brynn Arrington, Emily Sliva and Olivia Rodriguez all made their shots, along with the first four shooters for Life Christian. The fifth Eagle shooter missed over the top of the net, setting up Swenson for the game winning goal.
“I’m pretty proud of the girls. We practice penalty kicks quite a bit and everyone was on target,” Adna coach Juli Aselton said. “It was a fantastic game, it felt like a playoff game. There were lots of fouls both ways because we were both being aggressive.”
Adna goalkeeper stopped 15 shots in the win.

Winlock goalkeeper Cheleena Squibb stopped a penalty kick in regulation to keep the game scoreless, and made a save in the shootout, but Winlock’s shots in the shootout never found the goal.

Lumberjacks Log Fewer Swings Than Rochester
A crowded course and a fit of nerves became the Warriors undoing on Wednesday as they dropped a nonleague match to R.A. Long at Riverside Golf Course by a score of 226-295.
R.A. Long’s Noah Gilchrist’s 41 finished as the match medalist with a score of 45 and four other Lumberjacks shot below 50. Meanwhile, Rochester’s low score was a 55 registered by Ethan Worden.
Rochester coach Kyle Sprague noted that there were four varsity teams playing the course so tee times wound up being stacked one on top of the other and made for a hectic round of warm ups at the driving range. He believes his team wilted a bit under the harried conditions.
“Part of it I think is that we rushed. Guys were thinking that we were under the gun and they just tried to play too fast,” said Sprague. “We should do better than that.”
Sprague said his team was also suffering from a bout of self-inflicted pressure after posting one of their best cumulative rounds of the season at Newaukum Golf Course on Monday in a match versus W.F. West.
“The other thing is some of the guys that I talked to, it was clear that they were putting too much pressure on themselves,” said Sprague. “They figured they were going to come out and keeping shooting lower scores and sometimes it doesn’t work like that. Then you put pressure on yourself and one bad shot becomes two, becomes four, becomes ten. They just couldn’t get out of it.”
After Worden’s 55, the rest of the Rochester effort consisted of a 56 from Marcus Ashton, a 50 from Colton Winters, a 62 from Logan Fry, a 63 form Brayden Norquist and an 83 from Gabe Masias in his first-ever varsity match.
R.A. Long backed up Gilchrist’s pace setting 41 with a 45 from Troy Parrish, a pair of 46s from Easten Haglund and Chandler Lyon, a 48 from Alex Brady and a 52 from Brady Anderson.
Rochester’s match versus Aberdeen that was scheduled for Friday has been postponed due to a conflict with Homecoming and will be rescheduled at a later date. The Warriors will host Black Hills in a 2A Evergreen Conference match on Monday.
