Lady Spartans fall to league's elite

   Priest River 1, Timberlake 7:  SPIRIT LAKE — The host Tigers gave up a goal three minutes into the game on senior night, but Ida Jansson scored twice in the first half and Timberlake (6-3-2, 5-2-1 IML) scored the final seven goals on the way to a 7-1 Intermountain League win last Tuesday.

Sophomore forward Angel Clark scored for Priest River (1-10, 1-7 IML).

   “We came out really strong and played with them the first 40 minutes,” Spartan coach Melissa Dallenbach said. Adding, “Then in the second half we got tired and they came in with fresh legs.”

   Brittany Krampert came away with 12 saves and Alyssa Carey added six for the Lady Spartans, who went on to play at Bonners Ferry on Saturday.

First half — 1, PR, Angel Clark (Elisa Williams), 3:00. 2, TL, Ida Jansson (unassisted), 11:00. 3, TL, April Sutton (unassisted), 24:00. 4, TL, Jansson (unassisted), 36:00. Second half — 5, TL, Ashly George (unassisted), 44:00. 6, TL, Koral Yeager (unassisted), 49:00. 7, TL, Emily Hayes (unassisted), 58:00. 8, TL, Darian Brillon (unassisted), 75:00.

Shots on goal — PR 8, TL 22.

Saves — PR, Brittany Krampert 12, Alyssa Carey 6; TL, Koral Yeager 2, Courtney Sutton 6.

   Priest River 1, Bonners Ferry 8:  BONNERS FERRY — Elizabeth Racer scored five first-half goals as the Badgers beat the Spartans 8-1 in an Intermountain League match on Saturday.

   Despite the score, Priest River (1-11, 1-8 IML) played a solid game and posted 12 shots on goal to match Bonners Ferry (8-3-1, 4-0-1 IML).

Forward Angel Clark scored a goal at the 53-minute mark for the Lady Spartans.

   At Bonners we came out and just didn’t play our game. We were on our heels and let them be faster than us in every way,” Priest River coach Melissa Dallenbach said. “In the second half we changed things up and got to try out some new things that we might work on to finish the season.”

   Junior keeper Brittany Krampert came away with six saves for the Spartans, who travel to Newport on Saturday for a 12 p.m. game.

   “We have two weeks left and only two games so that leaves us extra time for practicing and fine tuning some things so that we will come into districts with the dedication and knowledge that we will fight to the very end,” Dallenbach said.

First half — 1, BF, Elizabeth Racer, 3:45. 2, BF, Racer, 5:15. 3, BF, Racer, 7:08. 4, BF, Jocelyn Palacios, 10:23. 5, BF, Racer, 14:59. 6, BF, Racer, 16:28. 7, BF, Lindsay Taggart, 32:47. 8, BF, Kerstin Oxford, 36:49. Second half — 9, PR, Angel Clark, 53:32.
