The La Grande girls soccer team was in control all day against Riverside Tuesday afternoon.

"Basically, we controlled the game from start to finish," La Grande coach Alex Steenstra said about the 5-0 home win.

Riverside had no shots, one corner kick and two free kicks total. Meanwhile, the Tigers had 39 shots — 25 on goal — eight corner kicks and four free kicks.

"Overall, I was pleased with the game," Steenstra said. "I saw improvement from the first one. The passing was sharper and better."

The team balance was better, and the team will continue to improve for its two big games this weekend against Washougal, Wash., and Madras, he said.

Amanda Schuft nailed a long shot for the Tigers' first goal with 12:00 in the first half. Three minutes later, Lindsey Carmichael netted the second goal after getting an assist from Nicole Lewis.

The Tigers had three goals in the second half. Marianne stevold scored off a free kick three minutes into the half. Three minutes later, Lewis had an unassisted goal. Sarah Noyes scored off an assist from Lewis at 39:00.

The girls play at Washougal Friday and Madras Saturday.

The Riverside and La Grande boys played to a 0-0 tie Tuesday. Details of the game were not available by The Observer's deadline today.
