The Eureka girls won a make-up game with South Fork in girls soccer on Monday, closing out league play with a record of 9-1-2.

The 7-0 win puts the pressure on the Fortuna Huskies to get at least a tie in their final league game on Wednesday if they want to clinch the league championship outright.

The Fortuna girls, who host McKinleyville in their finale, have already secured at least a share of the league title, their first ever in girls soccer.

Wednesday’s game at Fortuna has been moved forward to  3 p.m. due to the impending power outage, with the Fortuna and McKinleyville boys scheduled to play at 5.

Eureka 7, South Fork 0

Klayre Barres scored four goals as the Loggers closed out league play on a high.

Torin Baty also scored to lead a strong showing by the Eureka freshmen, with Aquene Tollefson and Kellina Pratton each also netting in the win.

“Our freshman class really stood out tonight,” Eureka head coach Tommy Learmouth said. “Everyone of our freshmen played and rose to the occasion.”

Including the consistent Jordan Brown, who has been one of the team’s top performers all year, as well as Haylee Youkey, Amelia Staiano, Ginny Brooks and Sidney Madson.
