The sophomore defender sank the Tribe 1-0 on Thursday, Sept. 29, at Scappoose Middle School's Chinook Field.

The Tribe (4-3-2, 4-1 Cowapa League) has nevertheless beaten Valley Catholic (6-3, 5-0) in three of the last five meetings including last year's Class 4A state semifinals since the Valiants won the Class 3A/2A/1A state championship in 2013.

"We are very eager to play Valley Catholic again," Indians junior goalkeeper Alyssa Bakkensen said. "That game is always physically and mentally challenging, which is good for our team's development heading into the playoffs."

In the meantime, resurgent Scappoose won 2-0 in Astoria (2-6-1, 1-3-1) on Tuesday and had the chance for a season sweep at Seaside (1-6-2, 1-3-1) on Thursday, the results of which were unavailable at press time.

Faith Woodall and Ashley Baughman scored against the Fishermen, and the Tribe entered an appeal to allow Mackenzie Ela's last-minute goal that was left off the board.

The Tribe has five shutouts this season and 30 since 2013.

The Indians beat senior midfielder Elizabeth Barnes, junior defender Bryre Babbitt and the Seagulls 7-0 on Sept. 20 and have shut them out in five of the last six meetings.

Only No. 2 Cascade (1), 10th-ranked Molalla (3) and Corbett (5) have allowed fewer goals than Scappoose's six.

"We don't like to overlook any team, taking it one game at a time," Indians coach Summer Jark said. "However, we know that the Valley Catholic game will be a very critical game."
