As the last few games of the regular season are upon both teams, both teams were looking for a win to help position them for a run in the Shoreline Tournament and State Tournament.

A hard fought battle by both teams led to a scoreless first half.

In the second half, Valley struck 14:20 mark when Sophia Surber scored.  But eight minutes later Leah Chester had a breakaway and scored for HK.  The game would end in a 1-1 tie.  Liz Allen made six saves in goal for Valley, while Sophia Torello made five saves.

The Cougars record is now 6-4-2 with three games left, two against conference opponents.  Valley’s record is now 4-4-2.
