Stickney scores hat trick in loss…
2B defending state champion St. George’s used their offense early and late to get past Colville 5-3 in a Thursday afternoon nonleague game.
The two teams managed to play a fairly even match, with the Dragons (1-0, 0-0) putting up 18 shots against the Indians’ 14. It took a pair of late Katherine Gunn goals for St. George’s to overcome three goals from Colville’s Ally Stickney and get a win. The Statesman-Examiner reported that Stickney made the change from defender in the first half to forward in the second half and that’s when all of the Indians’ goals were scored.
Colville will get back on the pitch Sept. 14 when they head out to Rathdrum, Idaho for a game with Lakeland. First kick is at 12 p.m.
