Julia Hart scored two second half goals for the Hawks but it wasn’t enough as the Hawks fell 4-2 to the visiting Sammamish Totems in the 2017 season opener for both teams.
Hart slipped a low shot under Totems’ goalkeeper Heather Farmer in the 61st minute, then blasted a penalty kick past Farmer three minutes later, but it was the only scoring Terrace could muster against Sammamish in the non-league match played at Edmonds Stadium.
The Totems picked up a pair of goals each from sophomore Emma Hackett and junior Josie Sogn to earn the victory.
Terrace Coach Alvin Little wasn’t too concerned with the loss, stating that he is using the non-league matches at the beginning of the season to learn about his players and conceive plans of action for the important Wesco League games that begin Sept. 14.
“In these preliminary games that don’t mean anything (as non-conference matches), I’m just figuring stuff out,” he said.
Little did have high praise for Hart after the match. “She’s a dynamic player, she’s physical, she’s fit (and) she wants to win,” he said of the team’s senior co-captain.
The Hawk defensive back line and goalkeeper Maisey Knorr played in their first matches at the varsity level for Terrace on Thursday; “Our back line is new and they were a little disorganized,” Little admitted.
Terrace got another non-league test on Saturday, Sept. 9, when they travel to Seattle to face Nathan Hale; first kick is scheduled for 6 p.m.
In other Terrace sports results, the Hawks boys tennis team were blanked 7-0 by the Everett Seagulls Thursday to fall to 0-2 for the year. Terrace had loss to Marysville-Pilchuck 4-3 the day before in their season opener.
