COLLEGE PLACE — College Place High School's varsity girls soccer team lost, 2-0, to Royal here Tuesday, Oct. 19.

Royal broke a scoreless tie five minutes into the second half, and later doubled its lead in the 61st minute, holding on to keep the Hawks (2-12 overall) winless in the South Central Athletic Conference.

"CPHS continued to play well and stifle the Knights attacks while creating some chances themselves," Hawks coach Russ Carder said. "It was not to be though."

The Hawks will wrap up their regular season Thursday night at Kiona-Benton, with action scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

Despite the loss, College Place honored four seniors playing their last home game.

"It was a time to remember as the four seniors, Shea Kasenga, Ashely Romero, Jasmyn Ramirez, and Emma Darnold donned the blue of CPHS for the last time," Carder said. "Kasenga, who missed both her junior and senior years through an ACL tear, was able to take a ceremonial kickoff to friend Darnold.

"All four players have been a huge asset to the program, and we wish them great futures."
