CHELAN — The Chelan Goats boys soccer squad defeated the Bridgeport Mustangs 3-1 Saturday in the opening round of the 1A/B district 6/7 tournament and ensured a state berth in the process. Chelan, the defending 1A state champion, faces the winner of the Okanogan-Lakeside contest Tuesday in the district semifinals. Okanogan and Lakeside play Monday.
“It’s a pretty important game,” coach Jamie Richards said of Saturday’s victory. “There was a lot on the line for the boys, because it guarantees three more games.”
