VALHALLA 1, STEELE CANYON 0 – Senior MADELINE HAUGEN scored on an assist from senior ASHLEY WAYMIRE and senior KATE DE WENT earned the shutout in goal as the Lady Norsemen knocked off the sixth-ranked Cougars.

In the first half, a ball was sent down the right sideline to Waymire, who then sent a great cross to Maddie Haugen, who buried it into the goal for the lead.

Valhalla earned its first league win of the season in three outings.

“We played a very exciting match this evening,” Valhalla coach GIL VEJAR said. “It was back and forth in the beginning of the first half, but we began to control the ball halfway through.

“The second half was very tense and a little more even. The last 10 minutes Steele Canyon pressed forward and had several good chances but our defense held.”
