District roundup: Klahowya advances to championship game with 3-1 win over Vashon; North Kitsap falls 2-1 to Fife

SILVERDALE — The Eagles were in pretty firm control from start to finish in their opening match in the 1A District 3 tournament, defeating Vashon Island, 3-1, to advance to the championship game.

Mackenzie Weaver, Sarah Newhard and Maya Young all hit the back of the net for Klahowya, which will play Cascade Christian at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at Orting High School.

Klahowya had the ball in the Vashon Island half of the field for most of the first half and hit the scoreboard early. In the fifth minute, Alyssa Peters set up Young for an open look and she hit the crossbar, but Weaver was there to clean up the rebound.

Five minutes later, Newhard got free of the defense and kept her composure as the keeper rushed toward her. The junior forward calmly slid the ball into the far corner to put Klahowya ahead 2-0.

An unlucky handball call in the box gave Vashon Island a penalty kick and Sydnee Adams converted to cut the lead in half, but Young added a second half goal to ice the victory.

North Kitsap falls to Fife

The Trojans struck on a corner kick with 28 minutes to go and downed North Kitsap 2-1 in the second round of the 2A West Central District 3 tournament.

Kamora McMillian scored for the Vikings to tie the match late in the first half.

North Kitsap will play a loser-out game at 5 p.m. Thursday against Steilacoom at Franklin Pierce Stadium. If they win, the Vikings will advance to state as either the fifth or sixth seed and likely hit the road in the first round of the 2A state tournament.
