Hawks remain undefeated

The seventh-grade girls’ Chief Kanim Middle School Blackhawk Soccer team came up with three wins as they enter their final week of play.

On Monday, March 10, the Hawks came out kicking fiercely, scoring two goals early in the first half enroute to a 3-1 win over the Snoqualmie Middle School Eagles. Midfielder Ronnie Wassnick connected with her sister, forward Celena Wassnick ,on a cross pass that resulted in the Hawks’ first goal. Shortly after that, midfielder Terra Hauser found an opening in the Eagle’s defense, scoring another goal for Chief Kanim.

Though injured, Jaqui Roddewig was successful in protecting the goal box during the first half. But the Eagles began the second half with a bang, scoring within the first few minutes. Right forward Lauren Smith answered back, scoring the third and final goal for the Hawks.

Midfielders Jessica Taylor, Celeine Dixon, Ashley Cotton and Kailey Capelouto all played exceptionally well. Defenders Lauren Butrim, Ashley Jackson, Ty Mahoney and Victoria McClain produced several superb plays in the backfield.

It was an all-around strong effort for Chief Kanim on Tuesday, March 11 when the Hawks traveled to Ford Middle School in Tacoma, winning 10-0.

Hauser, Smith, Taylor and Celena Wassnick scored goals. Both Kelsey Sharpe and Kee Chang added two goals each.

Butrim surprised the Hawks by scoring a goal while playing forward – she normally plays sweeper in the back field. Defenders Madison Watcher, McClain, Mahoney, Jackson, Ambers Sharp, Morgan Schmelzer and Butrim played fiercely. Roddewig didn’t face many shots on goal, but still provided excellent keeping support.

The Hawks rounded out their week Thursday, March 13, when they defeated Tolt Middle School, 9-0. The Hawks began the first half with a bang led by Roddewig, who made several aggressive saves. Mahoney, Sharon, Butrim, and Watcher also shined defensively in numerous attacks. Similarly to Ford’s win, the Hawks shared many goals among players. Terra Hauser led the Hawks with three goals and numerous shots on goal. Capelouto, Smith, Ronnie and Celena Wassnick each scored one goal. One of the most memorable goals was made by McClain, who normally plays defense, but decided to try the forward position in the second half.
