ST. MARIES — Isabella Lucky, Sarah Hines and Cali Shipman scored first-half goals, leading the Coeur d’Alene Panthers in an 3-0 Intermountain League win over the St. Maries Lumberjacks at City Park on Tuesday.
“Several things were not going our way, but we were able to play through them enough to put three in during the first half,” Coeur d’Alene Charter coach Stacy Smith said. “St. Maries’ field is great because of its size, but it is not very forgiving when it comes to pace on the ball and first touches. We couldn’t seem to get much of a handle on either of those throughout, so I’m happy we were able to get of there with a win.”
Mercedes Zepeda had one save for Coeur d’Alene Charter (7-0, 6-0 IML), which travels to St. George’s on Thursday.
St. Maries (3-3-1, 3-3-1) travels to Kellogg on Thursday.

SPIRIT LAKE — Preston McLeish’s goal was the difference as the Badgers beat the Tigers in an Intermountain League match at Timberlake High.
“I thought our defense was great tonight,” Timberlake coach Steve Michael said. “Their speed was hard to keep up with, but our defense did.
