— The Lady Grizzlies were outpaced and overwhelmed by Wenatchee’s offense through most of last night’s match.

The Panthers attacked the goal often, giving keeper Morgan Duim plenty of work in the goal box.

The Grizzlies made it to the other end of the field on the attack twice before the halftime whistle, but were unable to capitalize on the near chances.

The score was 3-0 in favor of the Panthers with 12 minutes left in the first half.

Sunnyside coach Elizabeth Garcia did not report final statistics as of press time.
