REYNOLDS 56, ROOSEVELT 12 — The Raiders put the game away early with seven first-half touchdowns. Miles Wilson rushed for 255 yards and scored four times. Brendon Lynch led the defense with two fumble recoveries and a quarterback sack.
CENTENNIAL 3, ROOSEVELT 0 — Lize Rendon scored an early goal to send the Eagles into halftime with a 1-0 lead, and teammate Camille Rios found the net midway through the second half to secure the victory. Alexi Howard capped the scoring by beating the keeper with eight ticks remaining.
BARLOW 6, ALOHA 2 — Abi Hoffman netted three goals in a 10-minute span to send the Bruins into halftime with a 4-1 lead.
Mikayla Topaum also finished with a hat trick, highlighted early in the second half with a rocket shot into the top half from 25 yards out.
BARLOW 4, BENSON 0 — Adrian Chaparro netted a pair of first-half goals, and Ismael Lopez scored twice over the final 40 minutes. Magnus Hardisty held the back line on defense, while Giovanni De Los Santos and Joel Cammal controlled action in the midfield to secure the shutout.
ALOHA 5, GRESHAM 0 — The Gophers trailed 2-0 after 15 minutes, but stayed within striking distance when goalie Jose Calderon made a diving save on a free kick midway through the first half.
Gresham had a couple chances to answer with Ethan Smith hitting a free kick from 25 yards out that sailed over the far post. Five minutes later, defender Jakob Pederson stole the ball from Aloha attacker #23 and made a long run up the sideline before sending the ball ahead to Rey Hayashi, whose cross just missed a teammates head at the far post.
Gresham's final chance of the half came when Jaime Ruiz Soriano made a run into a crowd down the middle and drew a foul. Teammate Joel Gonzalez sent the ensuing free kick around a wall of Warriors only to see the goalie make the stop at the goal line.
Aloha added three second-half goals to finish off the nonleague win.
