Aiden Davis scored twice and Demetry Arellano’s goal at the 78th minute gave WAHS the win.

EUGENE – Sienna Higinbotham scored in the 77th minute to give West Albany the 2-1 nonconference win at Willamette.

Higinbotham knocked the ball over the top of the goalie on an assist from Bethanie Marteeny.

The goal came five minutes after Willamette tied the game on a free kick.

Higinbotham had both goals for WAHS.

WAHS coach Erik Ihde said most of the Bulldogs’ offensive players were back from last year but the defense was inexperienced.

“The defense got tested and they held,” Ihde said.

The Bulldogs travel to North Eugene on Wednesday.
