It was another normal, solid effort by the La Grande girls soccer team Tuesday.

At least that’s how coach Sam Brown described it.

But a normal effort by the Lady Tigers is usually pretty good.

And this was.

Yet again.

LHS defeated visiting Ontario 4-0 in a Greater Oregon League showdown to remain undefeated at 8-0 overall and move to 5-0 in the GOL.

OHS falls to 7-3 overall and is 3-2 in the GOL, with both losses coming to LHS.

“I really appreciate the way the girls are playing this year,” Brown said.

Haley White got La Grande on the board just two minutes into the game on a breakaway goal that she fired past the keeper.

“That goal was huge. It was a huge pressure reliever for us,” Brown said.

White appeared to add another goal at the end of the first half, but it was called back due to an offsides penalty.

La Grande took the 1-0 lead into intermission.

“Ontario pressured us well in the first half. Their coach, she likes to put pressure on you early,” Brown said of Ontario.

But it was the host Tigers who brought the pressure in the second half.

Fifteen minutes after intermission, Jasmine Smith booted a deep ball over the head of the Ontario keeper to make it 2-0.

Twelve minutes later Kayla Rasmussen got in on the action, adding a goal to stretch the lead to 3-0.

Smith made it a 4-0 game with a goal in the 40th minute to round out the scoring.

La Grande, still ranked No. 4 by the OSAA, has now outscored its opponents this season 49-1.

Ontario came in averaging 6.5 goals per victory.

“I told the girls that our aim now is not what we do, but it’s how we do what we do.

“We need to perfect what we do. Teams are getting wise to us,” Brown said.

La Grande will takes its act on the road Saturday for a non-league contest against Pendleton.

The Lady Tigers beat the Bucks 4-0 earlier this year.

Pendleton is 5-2-1 this season.
