Soccer edged by Chelan
Bea Avalos may not beat you with her speed and she may not have been a goal scorer in her first three years, but if the senior finds herself with a shot on goal nowadays it’s a good bet she won’t miss.
Case in point: The senior forward took an assist by Gabby Flores in the fourth minute and found the back of the net against Chelan on Saturday. A quick move past the goalkeeper, along with breaking free from a Chelan defender led to her second goal in the 77th minute in Quincy’s 3-2 loss to the Lady Goats during Saturday’s non-league contest.
“Gabby put in and Bea put it back across the goal,” said coach Eric Nelson. “All you have to do is get it past the goalie.”
Nelson said he liked the way Avalos played against Chelan. He said her aggressive style led to the first two goals of her career.
