WENATCHEE — A two-score advantage midway through the second half in a soccer match is a recipe for victory, at least in most circumstance. But that wasn’t the case for Wenatchee on Thursday as it hosted an upset-minded Eastmont squad that refused to back down.

Overtime seemed imminent after the Wildcats scored back-to-back goals to make it a 3-3 affair, but the Panthers put one between the posts with 77 minutes gone to take a 4-3 win and sweep their cross-river rival at Lee Bofto Field at the Apple Bowl.
