PHS girls extend unbeaten streak to 7 with win at Cascade

The Philomath High School girls soccer team scored four goals in the second half and posted its second straight shutout with a 6-0 win on Thursday at Cascade. The victory was Philomath’s seventh straight without a loss — a streak that includes five wins and two ties.

Coach Mat Phelps said his team had a “really strong performance” and “controlled all aspects of the game.”

The two teams battled through a scoreless opening 20 but sophomore Kamilla Grimmer broke the silence with a goal in the 21st minute, the assist going to junior Elizabeth Morales-Marquez. In the 31st minute, sophomore Bailey Bell scored with an assist credited to freshman Petra Hernandez.

In the second half, Philomath scored three goals over a stretch of seven minutes to put the game away for good. Senior Ella Weickum scored in the 54th minute with an assist to Bell. Three minutes later, Grimmer scored her second goal with an assist to junior Mia Cook. And in the 61st minute, freshman Madyx Mooney scored with another assist from Bell.

Freshman Isabel Morales-Marquez wrapped up the scoring with an unassisted goal in the 79th minute.

Philomath remains tied for first place with Woodburn in the Oregon West Conference with 5-0-2 records. Woodburn beat Sweet Home, 4-1, on Thursday. Overall, the Warriors go to 6-1-2.

Philomath will play at home this coming Tuesday against Sweet Home.
