After dropping the first two matches of the season, the Eatonville High School boys soccer team is now riding a five-game winning streak after picking up three more victories last week.

On March 27, the Cruisers travelled to Ilwaco High School and quickly took care of the Fishermen, 4-0. Riley Rockey scored two goals and picked up an assist in the win. The other goal scorers were Kevin Tomyn and Ryan Hatch, with one apiece. Bennet Cole, Josiah Goode and Austen Quirie each picked up an assist for the goals.

Nathaniel Goode recorded the shutout in goal with eight blocks/saves for the Cruisers. Trentten Cressman offered strong defense with five defensive saves.

The Cruisers returned home on March 29 to battle the Tenino Beavers in a 1A Evergreen League match up, and Eatonville came away with a 3-2 victory.

Rockey, Tomyn and Cole all scored goals for the Cruisers.

Cressman led the team with 15 defensive block/steals, followed by Josiah Goode and Nicholas Holder with four defensive blocks/steals each.

Nathaniel Goode contributed a solid effort with 12 blocks/saves.

Eatonville finished the week at home again in a non-league match with Raymond High School where they came away with a 4-3 win.

The game turned out to be a nail biter. Eatonville was up 3-0 with 30 minutes left in the match when Raymond scored to make the score 3-1 and then 10 minutes later scored twice more to tie the match at 3 with seven minutes left on the clock.

“With less than three minutes left until stoppage, Rockey scored the game winner,” coach Clinton Tomyn said. “We then had to kill time for the three minutes, plus four minutes of stoppage time, which seemed to last forever. At the end of play, the team and crowd went wild. It was the most exciting game of the year and a good way to finish.”

Rockey finished with two goals, including the game winner in the last five minutes, and one assist.

Kevin Tomyn made one goal and one assist. Victor Peña Moreno scored his first goal. Victor also had one assist.

Cressman made nine defensive plays, followed by Josiah Goode with six.

The team will take a week off during spring break before starting back up with three away games. Two of the next three games will be against Elma and Montesano, who historically have been league power teams.
