MOSES LAKE — The last team to beat Moses Lake in the regular season was the team to eliminate it from the postseason.

Eastmont midfielder Jayden Brown converted a goal in the 67th minute after a scrum in front of the net to stun No. 1 seed Moses Lake in the district semifinals 1-0. The goal was one of few quality looks for the Wildcats, who packed in defensively to hold the lead until the end of regulation.

Off a bye into the semifinals, the Chiefs’ shots were off-kilter for the entire contest.

Madi Krogh shot wide left off a redirected ball from Morgan Skone in the 18th minute. Krogh, this time as the facilitator, fed another pass to Natalie Bunch about 15 minutes later only for another shot on goal to just miss.

The frustrations continued to mount as chances either continued to land off the mark or were gobbled into the waiting arms of Eastmont goalie Kora Fry.

A couple late opportunities kept hope of an equalizer in play.

Fry collided with a handful of players near the edge of the box, leaving an open goal for Skone. However, Eastmont captain Alyssa Konarek arrived in time to kick the ball away in Fry’s place.

Denali Knowles took a free kick during second-half stoppage that was redirected off two Chiefs into the hands of Fry, who finished with 10 saves between the posts.

Eastmont will travel to West Valley for the District 6 championship game on Saturday.
