Once Estacada's girls' varsity soccer team could shake the jitters with an Emily Lewis goal on Saturday, Molalla was history in the Capital Conference playoff game.
Lewis scored first off a direct free kick and then centered the corner kick for Leah Lamb to score. Both goals came in the first half of the afternoon game.
'We had a lot opportunities in the second half, but we couldn't capitalize,' said EHS coach Rick Mudrow.
The win gave Estacada a shot at claiming the league's third and final state playoff spot with a game at third-place Cascade on Tuesday. Results were not available for the print edition of Estacada News. Please check www.estacadanews.com.
The Lady Rangers tied Cascade's Cougars earlier this season and beat them 1-0 last Monday.
Estacada was 5-6-2 against league opponents and 5-8-2 overall before Tuesday's match.
