Wa-Hi loses at windy Lampson Field, 2-1


KENNEWICK — The Walla Walla High School boys soccer team couldn’t overcome a pair of early goals Saturday, falling to Southridge, 2-1, on a windy Lampson Field.

The Suns scored their goals in the 10th and 18th minutes on a free kick and corner kick, respectively.

Wa-Hi’s Christian Segovia answered in the 32nd minute with an unassisted goal. He picked up the ball defensively, Wa-Hi coach Mike Washington said, and made several defenders miss before shooting from the 25-yard line into the far corner of the net.

But the Blue Devils (2-4 overall) were not able to find the equalizer despite the wind at their back in the second half.

“In the first half I actually thought we played better against the wind,” Washington said. “In the second half we came out and we couldn’t generate much offense.

“They kind of sat on their lead and we couldn’t play well enough to break them down,” Washington said.

Wa-Hi took nine shots in the game. Blue Devil keeper Mason Aherns made three saves.

The Blue Devils next host Kamiakin Tuesday at 3 p.m.
