Hawks down Pullman for district's top-seed
Cheney defender Cruz Galm goes to the ground to prevent a Pullman player from gaining possession of the ball in the Blackhawks' 2-0 win over the visiting Greyhounds. The win gave Cheney the District 7 top seed to the state tournament.
Last Thursday's Cheney High boys soccer game with visiting Pullman went about the way Blackhawks head coach Mark Kiver expected a third match-up with a challenging league foe might go - difficult and contested right to the final whistle.
The state's top-ranked 2A team scored a goal in the 23rd minute, and got a stalwart defensive effort to make that stand en route to a 2-0 win over the 10th-ranked Greyhounds. The win gave Cheney (15-1-2) the No. 1 seed out of District 7 play to the upcoming state tournament, setting up a match up with Othello (15-5-0) this past Wednesday, May 21.
