The Philomath High School girls soccer team issued payback to North Marion while extending its winning streak to six straight with Tuesday’s 1-0 victory on the road.
The Warriors (9-3 overall, 6-2 Oregon West) scored the game’s lone goal in the 61st minute on an unassisted shot by junior Kamilla Grimmer.
“We had to really battle physically … stayed together as a team with really great team defense,” PHS coach Mat Phelps said. “Hailie (Couture) made a couple of good saves, too.”
Philomath’s defense has allowed only six goals all season.
North Marion (8-2-1, 6-1-1), which is leading the Oregon West Conference by a half of a game over the Warriors, took a 1-0 win over Philomath on Sept. 29.
Grimmer has been a terror for opposing defenses, especially during the team’s winning streak, and now has 20 goals for the season.
Philomath will hit the road again on Thursday for a 6:30 p.m. game against Sweet Home. The Warriors will then wrap up the regular season on Oct. 25 with a home game against Stayton.
