It took a second-half comeback, but the Todd Beamer girls soccer team remained unbeaten and in first place in the South Puget Sound League South Division.

The Titans (6-0-0) handed the Puyallup Vikings their first loss of the SPSL South season, 2-1, Thursday at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. The Vikings (3-1-1) got on the scoreboard in the 22nd minute on an unassisted goal by Allison Shelton.

The score remained 1-0 until Beamer’s Jenny Hoefel struck for the first of her two goals on the day seven minutes into the second half to tie the game at 1-1. Hoefel’s game-winner came two minutes before the final buzzer sounded on a pass from senior Breanna Straus.

Hoefel’s two goals gave her a team-leading seven on the season in just six games. The junior also has two assists for the unbeaten Titans.


The Raiders (2-3-2) demolished the Kent-Meridian Royals Thursday, 7-0. Senior Lindsey Dahl collected her second hat trick of the season during the win. Dahl has seven goals in seven matches for TJ. As a junior, she finished with a league-best 20 goals in 18 matches.

Jefferson also got two goals from Chentay Warnes and single goals from Nicole Goldingay and Kristine Coranado.

Federal Way

The Eagles (1-3-1) fell to a solid Emerald Ridge team Thursday, 2-1. Federal Way’s lone goal came from Bianca Arizpe in the 17th minute to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead.



The Thomas Jefferson girls continued to roll through the SPSL Central Division with a 124-71 win over Auburn Riverside on Thursday.

State tournament vet Alexus Song earned medalist honors at Riverbend Golf Course by earning an impressive 27 points for the Raiders. Jiny Lee and Hannah Yi both tied with 21 points each for TJ.

On the boys’ side, the Decatur and Federal Way boys came close in their respective matches Thursday. Auburn Mountainview beat the Gators in an SPSL 3A contest Thursday at Twin Lakes, 75-73. Auburn beat the Eagles, 54-51, at Auburn Golf Course.

Decatur’s Carsten Olufson finished in a three-way tie with a pair of Auburn golfers for low round. Olufson fired a 3-over, 39 at Twin Lakes. Spencer Clapp finished with a 40.

Federal Way’s Travis Shaflik shot a 3-over, 39 at Northshore Golf Course on Thursday to lead the Eagles.


Boys Tennis

The Thomas Jefferson Raiders remained unbeaten in the SPSL Central with another 5-0 shutout of Auburn on Thursday.

But the victory wasn’t as easy as the final score indicates. Jefferson won a pair of doubles matches in three-set marathons to complete the shutout. Alex Lee and James Lee beat Auburn’s J.J. Ruffin and Cole Jeter at No. 1, 6-7, 6-4, 10-6, and Russell Stelzer and Cameron Martin also needed three sets after dropping the opener, 6-7, 6-2, 10-8, at No. 2 doubles.

Kainoa Rosa and Vivek Ramanujan lost a total of one game in singles play for the Raiders.
