It’s amazing what a little home cooking can do. 

The La Grande girls soccer team is enjoying the fruits of its hard work during the regular season, picking up a 2-0  win against Brookings-Harbor in the Class 4A playoffs Saurday. 

As the No. 1 team, the Tigers have homefield advantage in the Class 4A playoffs.

Brookings-Harbor traveled more than 10 hours for the quarterfinal matchup in La Grande.

“We’ve had to go on the road in the past,” La Grande head coach Sam Brown said. “It’s not an easy thing to do. It’s hard to travel as far as some of these teams do and win.”

Last season the Tigers went on the road to play Philomath in the quarterfinals, a 4-0 loss.

“That trip helped the girls understand what it takes to win at this level,” Brown said.

Senior Haley White took the edge off, scoring a goal in the sixth minute of the game. 

Jasmine Smith, a senior, tacked on the final goal of the game in the 21st minute.

The Tigers stuck with the playoff mindset of pushing the ball out of their backfield as much as possible.

“We want to make the other team work to score,” Brown said. “It comes naturally to the players to play that way. You don’t want the ball near your goal. There are just so many things that can go wrong.”

La Grande will host North Bend/Oregon Coast Technology at 1 p.m. Tuesday. 

The Bulldogs finished the season 9-0-1 in the Far West League, and went 14-1-1 overall. 

North Bend/Oregon Coast Technology defeated Mac-Hi in the opening round 7-0, and then picked up a win against Klamath Union 2-1 on penalty kicks.

The Bulldogs beat Brookings-Harbor once this season, 2-1. In the other Far West League meeting the two teams ties 1-all.

“The girls can’t wait,” Brown said. “The more and more I watch our girls play, the more special I see they are.”

Ticket prices for the semifinal game will be $7 for adults and $5 for children.
