5A girls soccer: Newsome gets past East Bay once again

Class 5A Wolves get past Indians once again

LITHIA — Newsome and East Bay squared off Tuesday in a rematch of the Class 5A, District 9 championship game. The same team won again with the Wolves advancing courtesy of a 3-1 semifinal win.

Newsome coach Kelly Townsend warned her players about overlooking East Bay, a team it defeated 3-0 in the district final.

"When you're at this level, it's anybody's game," Townsend said. "Now the pressure's on for us to keep going."

Caroline Evers got the Wolves going, keeping alive her season-long streak of converting penalty kicks. She beat goalkeeper Andrea Owens for a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.

Newsome added two goals in the second half. Karina Gutsche booted one from 16 yards out on the left side before Emily Jones nailed an 18-yarder in the 62nd minute.

East Bay's Natalie Preston scored in the 72nd minute.

Townsend lauded her team afterward, pointing out that the starting lineup features nine new starters from last year's team that advanced to the region finals.

    Researchers studying the link between football and chronic traumatic encephalopathy found that 99 percent of the brains donated by families of former NFL players showed signs of the neurodegenerative disease, according to a new study published Tuesday.
