Ryann Bailey and Lily Given netted a goal apiece as the Kalama Chinooks held off the Concordia Christian Academy of Tacoma 2-0 in a 2B/1B Girls Soccer State quarterfinal match on Friday at Chinook Stadium.

Kalama (17-2) plays the winner of the Adna/Friday Harbor match in the state semifinals at 4 p.m. Nov. 16 at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner.

“This was a big game for us,” Kalama coach John Bates said. “We dominated the game from start to finish, and I’m proud of how they handled themselves.”

Bailey scored off a feed from Melanie Martinez as the Chinooks led 1-0 at halftime. Given converted a Bailey assist in the second half.

“They played a lot better than what I saw on film,” Bates said of Concordia. “They have the fastest kid I’ve ever seen in soccer. It took three of us to slow her down, but we kept our composure.”

Goalkeeper Mary Morrell notched the shutout in goal with one save.

“We don’t have any standouts, and we’re playing like a team should,” Bates added. “It’s all about having good chemistry.”
