Pioneers suffer loss to Sedro-Woolley

Tori VandeHoef scored twice, but Sedro-Woolley’s offense was too much for Nooksack Valley as the Pioneers suffered a 9-2 Northwest Conference loss on Thursday, Oct. 16, at Sedro-Woolley.

VandeHoef scored her first goal after she stole the ball from a Cubs’ defender and beat the keeper in a one-on-one. Her second goal came on a give-and-go combination with Jasmine San Juan.

“Jasmine came in as a sub in the second half, and as soon as I subbed her in she wanted to stay in so she gave everything she had,” Nooksack Valley coach Valentin Villalobos said in a phone interview. “Tori had a couple of runs, but we were unlucky that they were right at the keeper.”

Sedro-Woolley moved the ball quickly and kept trying to go over the top of the defense with long passes, Villalobos said.

Nooksack Valley will look to bounce back on Saturday, Oct. 18, at Lynden Christian.
