Even in a down year, West Valley soccer continues to beat its league rivals from the Yakima Valley.

Davis visited the Rams with a chance to widen the gap between the two teams in the CBBN standings, but Gracie Brownell's second goal of the game just minutes before the final whistle lifted the Rams to a 2-1 home win and pulled them even with the Pirates for fourth place. An early second-half goal put Davis ahead before Brownell scored the equalizer on an assist from Anna Murphy.

Goalkeeper Isabella Huerte kept Davis in the match with nine saves and Tai Brennan made five saves for West Valley. The Rams' other two league victories this season came against Eisenhower and Sunnyside.
