Trout Lake loses weekend series, league lead to Moses Lake Christian

Moses Lake Christian took over the lead in Greater Columbia B League soccer standings, beating previously unbeaten Trout Lake twice last weekend on the Mustangs' home pitch.

The Lions (3-0, 6-1) opened the two-match series with a 4-1 victory on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, they prevailed by a score of 5-3.

Trout Lake never led in the first match and trailed, 2-0, at halftime.

The Mustangs got within 2-1 early in the second half, but the Lions countered with a momentum-shifting third goal to push their lead back to two and finished off the scoring with a penalty kick (after a Mustangs handball infraction inside the goal box) late in the going.

The loss snapped Trout Lake's seven-match winning streak, which included a 4-1 GCB victory at Riverside Christian on Sept. 21 and a 3-2 non-league verdict on the 24th against Grant Union at John Day, Ore.

Trout Lake, which had outscored its opponents, 32-8, before last weekend, dipped to 1-2 in league play after Saturday's defeat and fell half a match back of Riverside (1-1) in the standings.

Riverside (3-2-1 overall) shut out Sunnyside Christian, 1-0, last Friday to record its first GCB win.

Sunnyside, Trout Lake's next GCB opponent, dropped to 0-2 in league and 5-4 for the season.
