LIZTON-They only played a half before the storms came, but the final will count as No. 17 Tri-West defeated Southmont 4-1 Thursday.

Southmont got on the board first thanks to an unassisted goal from freshman Macy Zachary. Tri-West got going midway through the half and scored their four goals in the last 20 minutes.

"We looked good. We scored first and took it to them for the first 20 minute," Southmont head coach Alfredo Villalpando said. "I think we just started making mistakes defensively. A team like Tri-West will punish you if you make mistakes."

The Bruins out-shot the Mounties 7-6 and Southmont goalkeeper Abby Rivers made four saves.

Next for Southmont (4-9-2) is a sectional matchup on Tuesday with North Putnam. The teams have met twice already this season with the Cougars winning both matchups, including a shootout win at the Southmont Invitational.

"It's a team we know well," Villalpando said. "We're eager for another try at them."
