MILTON-FREEWATER — Seven different McLoughlin High School girls scored, and teammate Ruby Jaimes recorded her fourth shutout of the season, here on Tuesday, Sept. 14, as the Pioneers crushed Irrigon in an 8-0 landslide.

Leslie Sanchez scored twice while Giselle Ruiz, Johana Martinez, Analysis Banks, Alicia Carranza, Caitlin Barnhart and Sinai Martinez all netted goals.

"We played very well," Pioneers coach Martin Martinez said. "We had great passing and ball movement that lead to scoring opportunities."

The Pioneers (4-1 record) are back at it Wednesday at College Place High.

Action here Tuesday stopped with about 23 minutes left in regulation due to the state mercy rule.

Mac-Hi was already up 3-0 at halftime.

"Our defense played well in the back, allowing only two shots at goal for Ruby Jaimes to easily bock," coach Martinez said. "We did a lot of subbing to allow girls to get some playing time, and give rest since we have a game tomorrow."
