LHS keeps perfect slate against Baker

A little controlled fun is always good. Auslin McDaniel-Perrin did just that Thursday during La Grande’s 11-0 win against Baker City.

The goalie got to take off the penny and roam the field in the second half.

“It’s a lot of fun,” McDaniel-Perrin said. “I feel like I’m part of the team. The ball hasn’t come my way a lot this season in the net.”

The Tigers have allowed just two goals this season, and McDaniel-Perrin has eight shutouts this season. 

She has the best view of what her team is doing.

“They’re amazing to watch,” McDaniel-Perrin said. “It can be hard to sit on the other side of the field and watch them doing what they’re doing.”

But during the second half, she took her own shots at the Baker goalie. McDaniel-Perrin put three shots on goal. The first went just off the far post. Her second attempt went right into the arms of Baker’s goalie. The third found the back of the net for a goal.

“I started to get a little frustrated,” McDaniel-Perrin said, laughing. “I really wanted to get one in the net, so I was happy to see the last one get through.”

Jasmine Smith finished with four goals in the game. 

Alissa Welberg and Lexus Miller-Moylan each had two goals.

“We tried to work on our passing a little more,” La Grande head coach Sam Brown said. 

“We also pulled the ball back out of the attack zone a few times to try some different things out.”

The Greater Oregon League changed the rules last year to take out the mercy-rule, allowing the match to continue after La Grande scored its 10th goal.

The Tigers improved to 9-0 this season and 3-0 in the GOL.

La Grande will travel to Pendleton for a 10 a.m. match Saturday. The Tigers beat the Buckaroos 4-0 earlier this season.

“You never know what can happen,” Brown said. “We’re going to go in there and try to take care of business. Our goal all season is not to be overconfident.”
