PAMPLIN MEDIA: JIM BESEDA - Corbetts €‹Mally McCowen (10) tangles with Gladstones Genae Vanek (9) during the first half of Tuesdays Tri-Valley Conference girls soccer match in Gladstone.

Tri-Valley Conference

Team Score

GLADSTONE — Two of Corbett’s best scoring chances in Tuesday’s Tri-Valley Conference girls’ soccer opener at Gladstone both ended up in the net — at the opposite end of the field.

Gladstone’s Rielee Jaekel scored on one transition rush in the 27th minute and Kasey Hogan put the finishing touch on another counterattack in the 59th minute, lifting the Gladiators to a 2-0 victory at Dick Baker Stadium.

The Gladiators have won their league opener for the third year in a row.

In the final 20 minutes, Corbett made a handful of runs that all met with resistance as soon as the ball got anywhere near the box.
