MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake soccer picked up a big win against Sunnyside at home, defeating the Grizzlies 6-0 to move to 2-1 in the Columbia Basin Big Nine.

Hayleigh Throneberry opened up the scoring for the Chiefs quickly off a ball from Kaydence Martinez to put Moses Lake ahead within the first five minutes. Martinez scored a goal of her own less than ten minutes later to double the lead.

Goal-scoring machine Natalie Bunch put in her first goal of the match midway through the first half. Throneberry nabbed her second goal of the half with five minutes to play to put Moses Lake up 4-0 going into the locker room.

The Chiefs were held scoreless for much of the second half, much to the dismay of head coach Liz Bigger, but the lid came off late thanks to Bunch. The sophomore nabbed a pair of goals within a couple of minutes to nab the hat trick and secure the 6-0 victory.

The Chiefs finished with 21 shots, 15 on goal in the match. Sunnyside put up seven shots of their own, with six landing on goal.

Bigger said the drop in intensity in the second half is something she looks to work on with her squad.

“We’ve got big games coming up against Davis and Eastmont and we can’t lose that focus coming out of half time,” Bigger said. “We’ve gotta find out what motivates them and get them charged instead of just the last ten minutes.”

Throneberry was a player that stood out to the Moses Lake head coach with her performance on the night.

“The runs, they found her, she nailed it,” Bigger said. “I thought she played great. Kaydence did a great job in the middle holding the center, almost to a point that I didn’t notice her.”

Bigger said she was so busy paying attention to other details that she didn’t notice how solid Martinez was performing in the central part of the field for the Chiefs.

Next up for Moses Lake is a road game at Davis on Saturday.
