HILLCREST 2, SHELLEY 0: At Hillcrest, the Knights scored twice in the second half and defeated Shelley to begin the 4A District 6 tournament.
The Knights’ first goal was by Zoe Hansen, who took a shot from a distance off a rebounded ball that came out of the box. Hansen then assisted Brooklyn Summers, who scored on a one versus one opportunity.
Hillcrest coach Danielle Francis said at halftime, the Knights discussed patience with shots.
“I would say we dominated the first 30 minutes of the (first) half,” Francis said. “We had some shots and some one v one opportunities, but they weren’t very strong or went straight to the keeper.”
Shelley’s season ends at 1-14-0. Hillcrest (6-10-1) plays in a semifinal Saturday at No. 1 Skyline.
