Four goals in the second half lifted Walla Walla High School's girls soccer team to a 6-1 rout of Kennewick on the Blue Devils' pitch on Tuesday, Sept. 14.

The Blue Devils only led 2-1 at halftime, but pulled away to even their record this season at 2-2.

They look to stay strong Thursday, when they return to action at Southridge.

Wa-Hi pummeled Kennewick with an all-out attack.

Kaitlyn King put the Blue Devils ahead with her first goal Tuesday, converting an assist from Marlee Boyd.

Kennewick managed to cut the edge in half before intermission, but the Blue Devils dominated the rest of the match.

After increasing their lead to 3-1 early in the second half, Hayleigh Burke added another Wa-Hi goal to keep the ball rolling.

Jazlyn Martinez soon joined the Wa-Hi scoring spree, and before time expired, King had tacked on the final goal.
