WENATCHEE — West Valley's quest for an equalizer looked as though it would end in disappointment heading into the final minute of regulation at Wenatchee Tuesday night.

A quick counterattack finally gave the Rams the goal they deserved in a dominant second-half, and extra time didn't even last a minute before Gigi Doucette scored to give West Valley a 2-1 win. The sophomore's long run and cross from the right side set up Tiffany Stratton's goal from just outside the six-yard box, then she capitalized on a similar cross from the opposite side by Ashlyn Valdivinos.

The senior defender and Seattle Pacific commit intercepted a pass near midfield, then kept the ball as she outsprinted an opponent before sending the ball across.

Junior all-CBBN forward Jes Lizotte returned from an injury for her first game this season and the unbeaten Rams will host Moses Lake on Saturday. Elsewhere in the Big 9, Sunnyside fell 8-0 at Moses Lake.
